"Proud Of You" as written by and Jesse/vodinh Hasek....
Shadows set the mood.
Innocence left the room.
And all I know to do is shed a tear for you.

Oh oh
Oh oh

[Chorus]
Please don't be ashamed, whether you win or lose.
I just want to tell you that I'm proud of you.
Don't be afraid, when your fight is through.
I just need you to know that I'm here with you.

I can't watch you choose to pour salts in your wounds.
Now all I know to do, is say a prayer for you.

Oh oh
Oh oh

[Chorus]

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh

    General CommentThis song hits me hard, but just the chorus does. The reason is because my father passed away a little over 3 years ago and I was going on 15.

    "Please don’t be ashamed whether you win or lose
    I just want you to know
    That I’m proud of you"

    The first part of the chorus. My dad always told me just have fun, who cares if you win or lose and he said no matter whatever I did in life, he'd be right there.

    "Don’t be afraid when your fight is through
    I just need you to know
    That I’m here with you"

    This part means a lot too because when my fight is through, I know my dad will be waiting in Heaven for me.

    General CommentJust wanted to say that I love the piano in this song, and the vocals are so god damn clear and.. ugh so nice. So moving. My lord you could interpret this song in so many ways. I don't know what to really say. Other than it's a really good song..

    General CommentReminds me of a good friend of mine who is in a rough place in her life doing drugs and alcohol, and it's kind of my song to her. Amazing song

    General CommentThis song hit me the first time i heard it, not only the piano but when i was listening to it I actually wanted to pay attention to it and the lyrics made me feel like even though I may be a failure in the things I want to have or complete I know that there is someone who can be proud of me for my good qualities.

    General CommentYeah, it was for his cousin that ended up dying. I've applied it to some friends and family that have battled cancer.
