Hold my hands
Yes hold them close so tightly
For so long I have felt this fear
Take deep breaths
Don't give up here just yet
You swear your ending's somewhere near
I was there
Pulling into my driveway
Running straight to the front door
As to see
Her tell my family he had stopped intake long before

After that
Coming from every angle
A thousand things
Running through my head
Didn't expect it now
No not now
Why it's so soon
Yet i'm still poised and offering
As I tread the living room

You held me higher
Then I thought I could climb
I'd just say no

Guilty me
I treated you like shit
And you were all I ever wanted in me
I owe you it too
Because I miss my last chance to say
That I love you

I caught a glimpse of his legs
Collapsed in black
Leaning over the slaves
A place that I
Used to call home
(Call my home)
In that street
That, house where I came from

Guilty me
I treated you like shit
And you were all I ever wanted in me
I owe you it too
Because I miss my last chance to say
That I love you

    General CommentHis dad did pass. Pretty sure intake refers to his air intake...

    General Commentim pretty sure this song is about his dad dying from a heart attack. "Running straight to the front door
    as to see her tell my family he had stopped intake long before" describes how he ran into his house to find out his father's lungs had stopped intaking air and he had passed away and he never had the chance to say that he loved him. Not to mention that after that line it continues "After that, coming from every angle, a thousand things running through my head" shows that it was a huge event in his life
