It's so hard to say goodbye
When I know it's for the last time
I know it's for the best

it won't be long 'til you get there
I know the hours move so slowly
I'll see you on the otherside
So go and carry her
Please go and carry her

I hope you're comfortable
I hope you're both smiling

It won't be long 'til you get there
I know the hours move so slowly
I'll see you on the otherside
So go and carry her
Please go and carry her

    General CommentI love this song! You can hear the emotion in charlie's voice. It's so sad! It's about saying goodbye to someone cause they are dying and that you will be with them again someday. but i dont know why its says, "I hope you're both smiling"?? Why both??

    General CommentHey, since this song is dedicated to his nan, i take that she died and he says "I hope you're both smiling" cus maybe her husband died before her and this way they get to be together again, and he gets to look after her again. Hence the title of the song! xXx

    General Commentyep, its "I know the hours move so slowly" ...

    i thing that the person that charlie asks to carry her nan is death itself. "I hope you're both smiling" i guess he had already lost someone else... yep could be his nan's husband..

    beautiful music, really nice :)

    General CommentThis song is so wonderful! You can hear so much emotion in Charlie's voice that it makes me wanna cry.

    It's so hard to say goodbye
    When I know it's for the last time
    I know it's for the best

    This verse says that it's hard to say goodbye when someone close to you dies. But you know it's for the best because that person doesn't have to suffer anymore.

    it won't be long 'til you get there
    And all the years move so slowly
    I'll see you on the otherside
    So go and carry her
    Please go and carry her

    I think "you get there" means going to heaven. Where everything will be good and Charlie says they will meet eachother there. I think he asks God to carry her.

    I read somewhere Charlie's quite religious so I think Charlie's asking God to carry her instead of death itself like BingerBuena said.

    General Commentjust listened to the song for the first time and before I read about the song being dedicated, I kind of picked up that it was about an ex moving on and dating someone else, hence the "I hope you're both smiling"
