emily my dear, you're just like your father and that's a shame. but you
don't have to expect the worst just yet. i know. these pictures sell stories
so well. that i want to belive in dreams so badly. i am on my back trying to
wake up. i have been asleep for days now. emily, this is you in twelve years
trying to wake up and say "i love you just as much as you love me"

    General CommentMy favorite memory of this song is one time at a show. The power had shut off so Dave got his guitar and played it by himself. Screaming all of lyrics so everyone could hear him. It was amazing.

    And I had no idea it was about an unborn child he was expecting.
