Dear mother, I love you
I'm sorry, I wasn't good enough
Dear Father, forgive me
Cause in your eyes, I just never added up
In my heart I know I failed you, but you left me here alone

If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?
Cause I remember everything.
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets?
Cause I remember everything.

But dear brother, just don't hate me
For never standing by you, or being by your side
Dear sister, please don't blame me
I only did, what I thought was truly right
It's a long and lonely road, when you know you walk alone

If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?
Cause I remember everything.
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets?
Cause I remember everything.

I feel like running away
I'm still so far from home
You say I'll never change but what the fuck do you know?
I'll burn it all to the ground, before I let you run
Please forgive me, I can't forgive you now.
I remember everything.
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?
Cause I remember everything.
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets?
Cause I remember everything.
It all went by so fast; I still can't change the past
I always will remember, everything
If we could start again, would that change the end?
We remember everything.

    For me, it reminds me of my biological family. They were all abusive and us kids are all messed up cuz of it. And even as siblings, we have done things we never should have. And i will never forgive our sperm and egg donors for everything that happened to us as kids...

    To me, this song means my daily life. Never adding up to my father. Never good enough for mother. Being awful to my brother. Disappointing my sister. Walking the lonely road of my failures. Wanting to run away from it all. Being judged and judged and judged. 5fdp, you've spilled the story of my life onto paper. You guys are amazing.

    When ever I listen to this song, it reminds me of the disappointment that I've caused in people's lives. Not just with my family, but with my friends, and with myself. There's a lot of things in my life that I'd wish to change and to take back. I feel the heartbreak and it usually brings me down. "if i can hold back the rain, would you numb the pain? cause i remember everything! if i can help you forget, would you take my regrets? cause i remember everything!" I always hoped to be forgiven for my horrible ways that have hurt the people I love in the past.

    It reminds me and shows what i've done wrong to the woman i love. I've hurt her in more ways than i can count . I've pushed her so far away, and i never stood by her side. I always done everything else but be there for her when she need me the most. If we started again i'm not sure if that would change anything. To be honest i don't know if i will ever get to be with her or come back home. This song shows me what i've really done wrong. I just hope i can get her back.

    Dude, the writer of this song must have spied on my life, tell me this is a weird ass coincidence:

    My mother - died when i was 12, but i have not lived how she raised me. Pretty much total opposite. I went a little nuts when my hs sweetheart died in a car crash.

    My father - he molested 2 of my three sisters, so i testified in court against him and sent him to jail. Im pretty sure that he is upset with me, but he is gone.

    Brother - the 2 sisters also said my brother molested them ( 3 years difference) i couldnt believe that because i was so close to my brother, but i stood with my sisters because hey, im their older brother, what are you going to do. So i left him alone and did not stand by his side during prob the worst time in his life. (he was freed because not enough evidence)

    Other sister - she does not believe that my father or brother did any of it, so she has disowned us, but i only did what i could, what was right.

    I wish i could forget it all, forgive them, let them in, but never, never will i, or can i, i had to stand alone, against everyone to do what was right, so fuck them, i sit here remembering everything and its raining, forever.
