"Forever My Father" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
You don't have to be so scared
You don't have to go tonight
I've just got to hold on tight
For one hell of a ride

'Cause lost it all just now
To the nights that left you out
So we'll let this go somehow
But you're gonna be proud, so proud

And I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone to lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one, for this one

And how can I fit all these words
Into such a simple verse
It's the last time that I'll speak
So listen to me, please

And I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart

For someone to lift me up
'Cause when I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one

For this one

And I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone to lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one

    General Commentthis is just such a beautiful song. Jason Lancaster is such an amazing writer and singer, and apparently it runs in his family. love it.

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong.
    Well if you go to their myspace and listen to the song, you'll see.

    I'd correct them, but the song is still a work in progress so who knows.

    Anyway, the song is self explanatory.

    For one hell of a ride
    And we lost it all just now
    To the nights that left you out
    So we'll let this go somehow
    I'm sure God will be proud
    And I just needed you to pick me up
    Like you did when we were younger
    When the lightning and the thunder
    Had me clinging to your heart
    For someone to lift me up

    So listen to me, please
    I just needed you lift me up
    Did you know that you're my heart
    And it hurts to be apart
    And this cut it hurts so deep
    So sing me to sleep

    General CommentI'm pretty sure that the girl singing is his sister and the other guy singing is his brother. He also has a band called Stages and Stereos.

    I saw Go Radio live a few months back, and this song is even better live. I got all teary eyed lol.
    But seriously Jason Lancaster is like my hero for his amazing lyrical and musical abilities.

    General CommentDoes anyone know for sure if it's "But you're gonna be proud" or "I'm sure God will be proud" ?
    Imo it sounds like "But you're gonna be proud".

    But yeah lyrics are kinda self-explanatory.

    Beautiful song <3
    Love when the snares kick in<3

    General Commentyeah the backup girl singer, if you listen close enough, sounds a lot hayley williams.. i love this song, live version and the recording. the live version is great cuz its acoustic but the studio/album recording with the piano is a whole different dimension in a way, completely diff dynamics
