It was supposed to end with our grandkids
Luckily for me I'm used to being cut short
But I'm such a nice guy, why Lord?
Why Lori? Why'd you have to take her from me?
Guess you needed your angel face for all of heaven to see
They were supposed to be together until they got old and had grandchildren, but Alori reportedly committed suicide. He wants to know why God took her, but supposes God wanted her beautiful face to be displayed in heaven. He’s used to having life suck, so he’s lucky here.
“Angel” also refers to Alori Joh’s real name, Loriana Angel Johnson
The “why lord” refers back to the opening line of the song. Job never questioned “why lord,” but soul did, that’s why this is the book of soul.
