I love this song but you got the lyrics wrong, it’s “the pain you seem to give, my friend” not I

He used to be one of the "Yung Bratz"
He caused a "Riot"
He said that people should "Look At Me"
But after the tragedy of "Jocelyn Flores"
He made "changes"
He wanted to "Take a Step Back" from music but returned
He used to say "Fuck love", but then he changed his mind
He wanted everyone to have "Hope"
He knew people went through "Depression & Obsession"
He wanted "Revenge" against death, which took his friend away
But he never got it, in reality all he actually wanted was "The Remedy for a broken heart"
He wanted to raise awareness for horrible causes, because if he didn't the awareness would be "Going Down"
He wanted people to be happy because he knew that "Everyone Dies in Their Nightmares", so he wanted people to have happy dreams instead
He wanted everyone to sleep peacefully under the "Moonlight"
But now he is gone
And we all feel "SAD"
We also feel "BAD" because we underestimated him
He wanted to "Save me" and everyone else
Now he is our “guardian angel “ thank you so much xxxtentacion I will never forget the day I met you and you gave me a kiss in my forehead I will miss u😢😢
