You're gone, and I'm left to carry on without you with me.
And the songs stop sounding complete.
We worked to record, we all learned to sing.
But you talked through the whole thing.

If you get there before I do.
Don't give up on me.
There's a lot that I could do without to keep you here with me.

What would we tell our kids? That we met at a bar?
And what if they say "Dad, how much did you love her"?
And then I'd say "Son, you know that it's truewhen no one else can love you."

Half as much is true, the things we say and do.
It meant everything.
The song's all off key, so we bring a melody to combine me and you.
But there's too much to do.
When you get there before I do, You'll give up on me.
But there's a lot I can do without to keep you here with me.

What would we tell our kids? That we met at a bar?
And what if they say "Dad, how much did you love her"?
And then I'd say "Son, you know that it's truewhen no one else can love you half as much as I do."

The D.J. was playing Oasis.
In a Champagne Supernova in the sky

Someday, I'll be a real good dad. I'll give those kids things we never had
Oooooooh.
And I'm bringing it right back to you.
And yeah, it takes long.
But think of what it could do for this song
You know it's for you.
