Stand beside myself with no words left to say,
And no matter how close I get you’re still six feet away
If you could show me the sun
I could accept this but I can’t forget
Cuz I know that you’re the one that made me who I am

[Chorus]
I need to have you there
Cuz it’s not the same, no it’s not the same
I need to have you there
Cuz it’s not the same, no it’s not the same

So tell me how loved you been
Is it like we hoped it would be (like we hoped it would be)
Can you see me staring back at you,
With my youth around my feet
And the eyes see you that day
It was too strong for you to carry on
As you lay and drift away
I lose my faith cuz there is no god

[Chorus]
I need to have you there
Cuz it’s not the same, no it’s not the same
I need to have you there
Cuz it’s not the same, no it’s not the same

Someone once told me that these arms could save a life or two
But it still kills me to know that I could not save you

[Chorus]
I need to have you there
Cuz it’s not the same, no it’s not the same
I need to have you there
Cuz it’s not the same, no it’s not the same

    General Commentthis song is about his mom who died. big d (the drummer) and howi(the singer) are brothers and their mom died like 10 years ago. a couple other songs might be about this, like close to me and saw her standing

    General CommentThis was apparently the first thing Howi wrote about the death of his mother. It's weird, it sounds kind of upbeat until you pay attention to the lyrics.
