Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We built our home out on the slopes
Pompeii beneath, she lay above
How she haunted our home
How she haunted our home
Verse 2
You were a god in my eyes
Above the clouds, above the skies
You were a god in my eyes
You were a god
Verse 3
You took me walking through the town
Showed me the statues underground
Said just don't they look in peace
Sometimes I wish that was me
Verse 4
I was the son you always had
Tugging at your coat when you were sad
I was the son you always had
I was the son you always had
Verse 5
Don't cry
Hold your head up high
She would want you to
She would want you to
Verse 6
Just don't cry
Hold your head up high
She would want you to
She would want you to
Verse 7
You said stay in the car and wait
There's just some things I have to say
Don't you know I miss her, too
I miss her just as much as you
Verse 8
So my father and my son
As you end what she's begun
You'll lie patient by her side
With roses red come lilies white
Verse 9
I was too young to understand
The flowers slipping from your hands
I was too young to understand
I was too young to understand
Verse 10
I was too young to understand
The flowers sleeping in her hands
I was too young to understand
I was too young to understand
Verse 11
Don't cry
Hold your head up high
She would want you to
She would want you to
Verse 12
Please, just don't cry
Hold your head up high
She would want you to
She would want you to
Verse 13
And just don't cry
Hold your head up high
She would want you to
She would want you to
Verse 14
Please, just don't cry
Hold your head up high
She would want you to
She would want you to
