Hands shake violently from the news
Little one inside you doesn't move
What can I do for you, how can I take this from you
'Cause I'm so scared of this room that once made my dreams come true

Don't look, it will blow you to pieces
Opened my eyes just in time to see a part of me taken away
Now I can't move, I'm stuck to this floor
God I know you have given, this time you have taken away

Lay you down beside the ones we knew
Nothing prepared me for losing you
What can I do for you, how can I take this from you
'Cause I'm so scared of this room that once made my dreams come true

Don't look, it will blow you to pieces
Opened my eyes just in time to see a part of me taken away
Now I can't move, I'm stuck to this floor
God I know you have given, this time you have taken away

Taken my heart from me
Taken my love, now I can't breathe
Taken my heart from me
Don't look; it will blow you to pieces

Maybe we're not meant for fairytales
Maybe we're not meant for fairytales

    General CommentRyan's song 'Why' is about a child he lost in the delivery room, and I think this song is about the same incident.

    "Hands shake violently from the news - Little one inside you doesn't move" -- The 'little one' is Ryan's child who unfortunately did not survive birth, and the violently shaking hands is Ryan hearing the news.

    "What can I do this for you, how can I take this from you - 'Cause I'm so scared of this room that once made my dreams come true" -- This is Ryan talking to God, asking him what he can do to have his child back and wondering how he can accept this from the God he'd trusted all his life. Understanding he won't receive his child back, Ryan is becoming scared of the room that once made his dreams come true (i.e. the delivery room).

    "Lay you down beside the ones we knew - Nothing prepared me for losing you" -- I am not absolutely sure, but I believe this is referring to the burial of Ryan's lost child. He is saying how he never expected to lose a child during birth and is not prepared for the tragic loss. 'Lay you down beside the ones we knew' is, to me, referring to Ryan laying his child to rest beside other family members.

    This song is really touching and can touch people in many different situations. It's a song written from Ryan's heart, and once again a song that shows the lyrical talent of Ryan Buckner.

    General CommentIn my previous analysis, I said "What can I do this for you." I meant to say "What can I do for you." Just don't want to confuse anyone!
