Tiny hands, recycled cans, the metal bands I could not stand..
The time you cried and threw your crayons across the floor...

These are the things I think about when I'm alone without you
I wonder of your whereabouts and hope like hell you're happy where you are.

You used to say that "you're just fine!"
But I still wonder all the time.

Hockey games, medical claims, police reports, terrible grades,
J, I'm so proud of all the things you've done.

These are the things I think about when I'm alone without you
I wonder of your whereabouts and hope like hell you're happy where you are.

"I'm alright, I'm alright."
I can see through everything you say, and all the lessons I never learned..

You used to say that "you're just fine!"
But I still wonder all the time.

Do you still believe in the stories told
To you by my friends and I when you were four years old?
How it got so cold that words just froze
We had to wait 'til summer to find out what was said
One of the best times that we had.

I know I say that I'm just fine,
But I hope you wonder from time to time.

I was nervous from the start that our muscles might tear us apart
(Are muscles tearing us apart?)
From the words that carve our lives to the words that take us by surprise
(I was never taken by surprise.)
From the sounds that disappear to the changes we begin to fear
(I can hear you clearly.)
One day I'll fail to breathe and all you'll have are memories
(All we are are memories.)

    The song is about a parent reflecting back on their child. When it says "J, I'm so proud of all the things you've done" it's probably Justin Pierre (the vocalist) thinking about how his parent's feel and he wrote the song from their perspective. They seem a bit sad at how fast time has moved and how fragile it is.
