"The Saddest Song(2003)" as written by and Kris Roe....
Only two more days until your birthday
Yesterday was mine
You'll be turning five
I know what it's like
Growing up without your father in your life

So I pretend I'm doing all I can
And hope someday you'll find it in your heart
To understand why I'm not around
And forgive me for not being in your life

I remember waiting for you to come
Remember waiting for you to call
Remember waiting there to find nothing at all

Maybe someday you'll really get to know me
Not just from letters read to you
I pray I get the chance to make it up to you
We've got a lot of catching up to do

    General CommentI saw them last night and they came back for an oncore to sing this song and some others hes said that he wanted to come back to sing this song because people told himthat the song meant alot to them..then he went on to explain the song, the song is about his parents splitting when he was 5 then he said " to make it even more fucked up they married again when i was 10" he said it took him 5 more years to get over all of this and be normal and then he wrote the song. So there ya go there kick ass live you all should go see them and pick upthere new cd and support the band!

    General CommentI heard this song was about Kris and his daughter. Whatever it's about, it's a very heartfelt song and it's so sweet.

    General CommentI heard that it was about Kris writing to a boy in hospital with leukemia who he finally got round to seeing and he died the next day. I originally thought it was about his dad and his daughter but that's what someone else told me.

    General Commentwhen i first heard this song i was confused as to who it was towards? like towards a son or daughter of his own or to other people in the same shoes.. or even to his own father at some parts.

    but whoever to- it's amazing, and i can understand more & more everytime i hear it, since i grew up with out a dad too.

    General CommentHe wrote it for his daughter, and how he's not around a lot. Like his father wasn't around a lot in his childhood. So it's about those two things.
