Don’t you wish that you were blessed by the presence of her ghost?
Some might say it’s for the best and babe I will make a toast
With this half filled cup I’d say, “Let memories live on”
Please don’t try to live in denial this is the Storm before the Calm

And you say that I’m not alone and I’m all alone again
And you say

I just want to know (Time, yea)
A year and a day and it’s still not over
And I just can’t let go (Time, yea)
Ten years from that day and it’s never over
Cuz now that you’ve gone away (now that you’ve gone away)
I’m lost today, left open with nothing to say
I was told I’m not alone
By you and by everyone else

And you say, “We’ll meet on up some day”
“And we’ll make up for the time that I couldn’t stay”
And I wish you could stay
In this empty house, all I wear
Is a cloak of confusion, It’ll make me disappear
And dad’s got the bottle, he’ll drink his pain away
Now a half empty bottle, but the pain is here to stay
Don’t you ever wonder (wonder) why the things that happen, do?
With heartfelt cries and bloodshot eyes, I know that you do too

And you say that I’m not alone and I’m all alone again
And you say, “Sometimes the heartache can only be mended by time”

Was hard to think
What life would bring
Without you here
And it helps to sing
Of love received
On days I’ve grieved
My world is isolation
Is what I believed
My chest beats hard
And it will explode
Walk beside me
Till I grow old
Without you here
Without you here
Life’s so empty
Without you here

    General Commentwell the title may be that they are gonna go through a rough time for their relationship before things settle down... there are alot of factors. "Dad's got the bottle, drinks his pain away. Half empty bottle, the pain is here to stay." somthing probably happened 2 his mom and so his whole family is in turmoil...so it's gonna be hell, but it will eventually calm down.
