"The Gift" as written by and Stephanie Davis....
Please explain a couple of things to me
How could you leave and then turn your back on me
If only we said goodbye, maybe then I would respect my life
In the end I am so ashamed of what you did
(why) you said that you would never leave I didn't even see you go
(why) now I am starring at an empty space its the place that you used to be
(why) and the look you see upon my face is the gift from you to me
A haunting pain inside that lingers over me

This is not the way its supposed to be if only we said
goodbye maybe then I would respect my life
In the end and I'm so ashamed of what you did
(why) you said that you would never leave I didn't even see you go
(why) now I am starring at an empty space its the place that you used to be
(why) and the look you see upon my face is the gift from you to me

You made me what I am you made me what I am
You made me what I am you made me what I am

(why) you said that you would never leave I didn't even see you go
(why) now I am starring at an empty space its the place that you used to be
(why) and the look you see upon my face
Is the gift from you to me
Is the gift from you to me

    General CommentIt's about Chris Volz's mother committing suicide when he was younger. He's also the lead singer for Flaw, so I'm pretty sure their song Whole is about the same subject: songmeanings.net/songs/view/43236/

    General CommentAfter reading the lyrics and seeing the video I believe this song is about his mother commiting suicide, maybe a continuation of "Whole"

    General Commentmanny21 u might be dead on i havent seen the video

    but on a broader scheme its just about someone leaving another person and it hurting them severly and they want a few questions answered on how and why

    tell me if im wrong

    General CommentYeah dude. Took the words outta my mouth. I saw it and said "This sounds real personal." And that is sure as hell how it comes across. I think both of you are right. It kinda depends on
