The last thing you said to me was this
"I wouldn't trade you for the world"
(I couldn't trade you for the world)

Because in the moment I knew how it truly felt to be loved unconditionally
When you held me on the back porch underneath the setting sun
You are the torch that lights the way through the darkest times in my life
Like coals that would burn beneath my feet to keep me moving on

Will you sing me to sleep the way you did when I was young?
When you held me on the back porch underneath the setting sun

I got time to kill but I won't waste a second
Cause I've grown tired of waiting and wasting away
Right now it seems all I know and love is gone
Except my beat up guitar and unfinished songs
At least I finished this one
(The last thing you said to me was this "I wouldn't trade you for the world")

    General CommentThis is such a touching song. I don't know if this is supposed to be a happy or sad song, but regardless, there's a lot of emotion in this and the instrumentals are very well though-out too. It could be about the writer's mother but I'm not sure.
