20 miles too fast
Acceleration on the gas
while she wakes up to the glass (ehh yeah)
Reaches out for her baby (oh oh ohh uh)
She reaches out for her baby (mm hmm)
The sun wakes up the birds are singing
She wakes up to the day
The skies are clear
New life appears
All she sees is the rain
Everyday is the same
Cigarettes all stamped on the desk
And Empty bottles on the ground
A baby picture on the fridge
Of Katie reaching for a cup
All she knew about was love

2001 to 2005 always remember by her beautiful smile
Katie tattooed on her arm her mamas gotta live on
Lullaby

Memories of the walks down to the parks
And drawing flowers on the pavement
And sharing double scooped ice-cream
Her favorite flavor was strawberry (yeah yeah)
An empty swing an empty yard and empty play house
Her only joy is now gone
And now she’s left all alone

2001 to 2005 always remember by her beautiful smile
Katie tattooed on her arm now mamas gotta live on
Lullaby
Lullaby

Flash backs to the past
And 30 miles too fast
Acceleration on the gas
While she
She wakes up to the glass
a shattered mirror of the past
She reaches for her baby
Reaches out for her baby
Starts getting takes her hand
Takes her hand this time
Heaven
In heaven

1976 to 2005 always remember by her beautiful smile
Sarah tattooed on her arm now mamas gotta live on
Lullaby
Lullaby

2001 to 2005 always remember by her beautiful smile
Katie tattooed on her arm now mamas gotta live on
Lullaby
Lullaby

1976 to 2005 always remember by her beautiful smile
Sarah tattooed on her arm now mamas gotta live on
Lullaby
Lullaby

    General CommentThis song is so sad! I nearly cried :(

    Its about a woman whose daughter, Katie, died at the age of 4, and now all she has is memories. And he sings about how she's been smoking and drinking but nothing fills the void, so she takes her own life so that she'll see her daughter again. Then at the end it's about that woman's mother, who's now lost both her daughter and grand-daughter. It's so sad :(

    Oh and the second of the three chorus' at the end should be;

    2001 to 2005 always remember by her beautiful smile
    Katie tattooed on her arm grandmamas gotta live on

    Amazing :)

    General CommentI think it's about a woman who gets into a car wreck with her little daughter in the passenger seat (the first few lines).

    Then it jumps forward to after the accident, when the mother is depressed and full of regret, and everything reminds her of what she lost in the little girl.

    Then as she's killing herself, she has a flashback of the same incident that happened in the real accident, except when she reaches for Katie, she's actually able to grab her as she ascends to heaven.
