You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
You got tears, making tracks
I got tears, that are scared of the facts

Running, down corridors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
I see hope is here, in a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
There's dry blood, on your wrist
Your dry blood on my fingertip

Running, down corridoors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
First night of your life, curled up on your own
Looking at you now, you would never know

I see it in your eyes, I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright
I see it in your eyes, I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright

Alright

Running, down corridors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
I see hope is here, in a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes
Down corridors, through automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
First night of your life, curled up on your own
Looking at you now, you would never know.

    It was about his preemie going into the nicu when he was born, it's about the devastation and the hope but mainly the desperate first minutes when the doctors are wheeling the baby away and you try running after them but you aren't allowed to follow until he's stabilised.. It captures that perfectly.

    This song was written about his baby who was born very premature. This song could have easily been about my family.our sister was born incredibly premature and was on the brink of death. I can relate so much, she was enclosed in the incubator for two agonizing months.i sob uncontrolably whenever i hear this.

    This reminds me of when my dad got cancer. Every lyric is just spot on with what has happened with him and the last lyric kind of has you guessing if everything's all right but you would never know.

    This reminds me of the time when my youngest sister was in hospital with cancer. No hospital staff owned up to it being cancer until it was too late and she was moved to a hospice. Apart from my mother who told me what it was cancer before my sister died. My mother died from a cancerous brain tumour two months after my youngest sister. It's not a happy song for me.
