Nothing matters more than those who depend on you, emotionally or physically. Even if the situation is life or death, you have to be there for them, because they need you.

You say look at me
Hold back your tears
I don't wanna see you cry
I look at you through
Tear-filled eyes
You don't understand
You'll never understand
(Chorus: He was there when you left me
He was there when I cried
He was there when I failed
But I wasn't there when he died)
You say don't wanna hear it
Your flimsy excuses
They're worth nothing right now
I turn away and I
Walk away 'cause
You don't respect him
You never deserved him
I scream and rant
For hours, for days
And you stare coldly at me
You hated him, I loved him
My grandpa was everything
Oh, when he died
When he died.

This is a song dedicated to my grandpa...he died on August 26th, 2011, and I still haven't gotten over it. Mainly because he's my grandpa, the one and only father I ever had... (I'm crying as I type this...crap >.<) My mother...she really hated my dad's side of the family, and, well...this one's about her, and me, when I got the news.
