Oh oh, how you are my hero?
Oh oh, how you're never here though?
Remember times when you put me on your shoulders
How I wish it was forever you would hold us

    Sometimes the most depressing of tracks can be the most uplifting.

    Yeah I refused to be limited to a "visitor" in my son's life when my ex and I split so I got a lawyer, then another, then another and three years later I had joint legal custody of my son and was able to see him every weekend and two weeks every summer. Most importantly I was not just a visitor in his life. Great song about real life.

    Their new drummer is incredible live. She drums while standing up and puts on a great show. Great band! Love this tune.
