I think about you every single day
And every time I see your face
I wake and it brings me to tears
We hadn't spoken in years
We were close when we were young and naive
We grew up and we learned other things
You'll always be sweet 16

And you will always be perfect
You'll always be beautiful
Our hearts will never forget you
You didn't belong here
And it's become so clear
Why heaven called your name

I miss you and it still feels like I know you
I've got pictures of us side by side to show you
But it feels like I owe you so much more

And you will always be perfect
You'll always be beautiful
Our hearts will never forget you
You didn't belong here
And it's become so clear
Why heaven called your name
And it just doesn't seem right, was it really your time?
Are we dreaming?
We'll never let go of you
Wish you were here but it's becoming clear
That Earth's just not the place for an angel like you
For an angel like you

You meant so much to so many
I'm not quite sure how to do justice to you
If they're ready to say goodbye
I know i'm not

You made the news and the papers for days and days
But it hardly seems fair
The whole world should know your name
I want them to know your name

And you will always be perfect
You'll always be beautiful
Our hearts will never forget you
You didn't belong here
And it's become so clear
Why heaven called your name
And it just doesn't seem right, was it really your time?
Are we dreaming?
We'll never let go of you
Wish you were here but it's becoming clear
That Earth's just not the place for an angel like you

And now we must let you move forward
Our love lies with you
Our souls fly with you
Amelia

    General Comment:I actually asked Tonight Alive's singer about this. Amelia was her best friend as a kid, but they stopped talking for a long time, and eventually Amelia committed suicide (not related to Jenna McDougall). Jenna felt extremely guilty that she hadn't been there for Amelia when she really needed her, so she wrote this song to remember her, and to make sure that the world knows who she was, like it says during the bridge: "You made the news and the papers for days and days
    But it hardly seems fair
    The whole world should know your name
    I want them to know your name"

    My Opinion:I like this song a lot. I think having people know her did work. Amelia must have meant a lot to her. And i believe she was wonderful to every one

    General Comment:This song reminds me of my step sister and I. I feel like this song would be from my sister's point of view rather than mine. I've suffered from depression for years and she's been there for me through all of it until now. Since she moved, I feel bad again and I've thought of suicide or running away. But, for our parents I don't think I will.
