"Even If" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
Doesn't seem that selfish
No, not in the least
What's so self-righteous
About this curiosity
This want for a meager exchange
So much time has passed but still it remains
This need for you
Is a reoccurring theme in my life

Don't you think I'm lonely
Eager to complete this story
Confused and still haunted
With why
You'd start over
And ignore me

It takes time to realize
The other side of you
That's controlling
Blind in hindsight
Of our lives

Even if you left me and my brother
Even if you left us and our mother

Want nothing more than to catch your eye
Would you be impressed with how far I've climbed
Without your assistance
With you nowhere in sight

Don't you think I'm lonely
Eager to complete this story
Confused and still haunted
With why
You'd start over
And ignore us

It takes time to realize
The other side of you
That's controlling
Blind in hindsight
Of our lives

Even if you left me and my brother
Even if you left us and our mother

She's had her share
More than we'll know
My brother won't
He just won't let go
They say you're sick and there's a name and a phrase
To apply and help explain
Still having trouble trying to separate
How you started a new family

Even after you left me and my brother
Even after you left us and our mother

    General Commentthis song is so beautiful it makes me cry.
    my dad is currently in a mental hospital right now,
    for the second time. he tried to overdose. he's not speaking to me. i feel like i've lost him. he's not himself anymore.

    this band is amazing i'm suprised they haven't blown up yet.

    General Commenti love the band, but this song holds a special meaning in my heart. i feel like it was written just for me because my dad was never around much while i was growing up, then he left us a few years ago. Now we are having financial problems because of it. whenever im feeling upset, this song always makes me better, because it feels that special to me. i love the honorary title and jarrod gorbel, im really glad they do music for the sake of doing music.
