"In Loving Memory" as written by and Thomas Scott Phillips Mark Tremonti....
Thanks for all
You've done
I've missed you for so long
I can't believe you're gone
You still live
In me
I feel you in the wind
You've got me constantly
I never knew what it was to be loved

Thanks for all you've done
I've missed you for so long
I can't believe you're gone and
You still live in me
I feel you in the wind
You guide me constantly

I never knew what it was to be alone, no
'Cause you were always there for me
You were always home waiting
But now I come home and I miss your face
So smiling down on me
I close my eyes to see

And I know you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel, I can't hold on
I sing tonight 'cause it comforts me

I carry the things that remind me of you
In loving memory of the one that was so true
You were as kind as you could be
And even though you're gone
You still mean the world to me

I never knew what it was to be alone, no
'Cause you were always there for me
You were always home waiting
But now I come home and it's not the same, no
It feels empty and alone
I just can't believe you're gone

And I know you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel, I can't hold on
I sing tonight 'cause it comforts me

I'm glad it sets you free from sorrow
But I'll still love you more tomorrow
And you'll be here with me still
All you did you did with feeling
And you always found a meaning

And you always will
And you always will
And you always will

And I know you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel, I can't hold on
I sing tonight 'cause it comforts me

    General CommentI'm a 22 year old guy and I'm not ashamed to admit this song brings me to tears. Reminds me of all my loved ones that have passed. Beautiful song.

    General CommentI believe this song is wrote about Mark Tremonti's mother who passed away from cancer. This song definetly talks about how much of an impact someone has on someong else's life and how they still make an impact on our life even when they are gone.

    General CommentYeah i agree with 'sting06' - this song is about someone passing away. I guess it could also be seen by some people as about someone they love who just isnt around anymore, not necasserily because of death. Its a real nice song wiht great lyrics.

    My OpinionWOW!

    While I'm pretty familiar with the Blackbird album, I just got my hands on this one a few days ago.

    So I was driving on my way to school, listening to the album all the way through. I was enjoying all the songs, and then this one came on.

    Halfway through this song, I'm driving down the highway in tears. I remembered the backstory my brother told me about it being about Mark Tremonti losing his mom, and that got me thinking of how it'd feel to lose mine, and it just really got to me.

    I can't wait for the new album! I have every bit of faith that they'll keep up the good work.

    General CommentThis song is probably one of my favorite songs. I think, personally, that it is Alter Bridge's best song. It's so heartfelt -- NOW I know who it's dedicated to. I know someone had passed away, but I wasn't sure who it was . . .

    My InterpretationThis song was written about one of the band member's mother who passed away, but could definitely relate to the death of a loved one for anyone. The singer talks about how much he misses her, yet is thankful for the love she gave him throughout his life. He is struggling to cope without her presence but takes comfort that her presence will always remain within himself.

    General CommentI lost my wife to cancer 2 months ago. After 36 wonderful years together. Now nothing is the same. I miss her so much. I still can't believe she's gone. Listening to this song and reading your comments as I lie here wide awake in the middle of the night in our empty bedroom. Full of stuff but empty, empty as I feel. The song and your comments somehow help.
