"There, There Katie" as written by and Dallas Frazier....
There goes my only possession
There goes my everything

I hear footsteps slowly walking
As they gently walk across a lonely floor
And a voice is softly saying
Darling, this will be goodbye forever more

There goes my reason for living
There goes the one of my dreams
There goes my only possession
There goes my everything

As my memory turns back the pages
I can see the happy tears we had before
Now the love that kept this old heart beating
Has been shattered by the closing of the door

There goes my reason for living
There goes the one of my dreams
There goes my only possession
There goes my everything

    General CommentKatie is Andrew's sister. She was his bone marrow transplant donor. This song has so much emotion, I want to cry when I hear it. It's with my favourite AM songs.

    General Commentwatching him play this song, with a knit hat pulled down over his face, the skinniest boy i've ever seen, but yet his voice is still full and beautiful makes me understand what loving your family is really all about. you need to see dear jack if you havent already.

    General CommentI can't believe there is finally a studio version of this song. It is absolutely stunning and so full of meaning. Truely beautiful.

    General Commenti've always wondered how it felt to have your name mentioned a couple of times in a song. it's pretty cool, and since this is her brother here, i totally envy katie. this song is just too beautiful to describe, i just love it so much.
    and mygirlbyjuly: i can't find dear jack anywhere, so where do i go to see it?

    oh katie, katie be happy
    this world can be ugly but isn't it beautiful?

    General CommentMcMahon explained to Spin magazine that this song, "was half written during Everything In Transit, and the other half after I found out my sister would be my stem-cell donor. It's a song about and for my sister."
