Hylgar : i can understand this version is more dramatic for some because of the soft tunes, but the punk version has so much soul and anger that i almost burst to tears everyrime i hear it

Scruffy P : For once I am sincere. To hear that from fat mike you know he means business.

Ane Hamam : My father had dementia He lied in bed for months Once in a while he’d call me,and ask me to fly down I told him that I’d love to But I had things to do And so he died without his son I heard about it drunk after a show My mother battled cancer For over seven years I nursed her and I held her When time was running out The night before she left me I drank scotch all night And thanked her for everything she’d done Raising me alone wasn’t much fun So dad I can forgive you, but I’ll never forget, Months I wouldn’t see you and when I did You’d be out with your friends all night Alone and only nine I watched the outer limits Scared out of my mind I wonder if you felt the same The days before you died I wonder if you even knew Why I wouldn’t come around I bet if you had been there, There wouldn’t be this song 2006 goodbye parents For once, I'm sincere 2006 that was my orphan year

Kevin Rogerson : This song means so much to me. This is the song i was listening to when i got the phone call the my dad (that i hardly knew) was dying of cancer, unfortunately i only get spend 4 days with him before he passed. But, every time i listen to this song, i think of him.
