lyrics

I was flooded with memories as I received the news
You were 4 years my elder, taken 40 years too soon
On your way, to see your daughter's first softball game
A surprise for her cause she thought you we’re working late

You said I was stupid,
Can’t tell me what to do.
I never had a plan, I never follow through
I always learn the hard way, I don’t know what to do
But you always picked me up when I fell in front of you

I keep my posters on my wall where your picture used to be
It hard to look at these days
I keep my posters on the wall where your pictures used to be
It’s hard to look at, so hard to look at
And as time ticks by all you got are love notes and polaroids

I wish I could see the sunset
Big and beautiful like her eyes
But lately they’ve been hurting
Cause life took you at 25

Your baby she’s crying
Cause daddy’s never coming home
And now your lady’s hurting
Cause you two were gonna grow old

Them she finds out you got a son on the way
She falls to her knees, and she starts to pray
Begging for you to come home
Cryin’ for you to come home

I keep my posters on my wall where your picture used to be
It hard to look at these days
I keep my posters on the wall where your pictures used to be
It’s hard to look at, so hard to look at
And as time ticks by all you got are love notes and Polaroids
