Of Mice & Men – Second & Sebring lyrics

I believe it's time for me to be famous,
And out of place.
I believe it's time for me to move forward,
When I break through.

This time I'll make you,

Proud to see me overcome all day life.

Proud of, who you raised.

Your shelter, your peacefulness.

So this time I'll make you proud.

Proud of who you raised up.
You know that I will
Always be here till' the end

Come back so I can say thank you for this,
Home cooked meals and a place to rest,
My troubled head when you're away
I've passed the test, I've earned an A,
Not just in school, but in life
You'll always be right by my side.
To help me show, hope to all,
That are lost and sick in this dying world.
I'll use the love you left behind,
I'll change their minds, I'll change their minds.

I hope, I hope you smile,
When you look down on me
I hope you smile.

This can't,
We won't know.
I hope that I make you proud.

This is not what it is, only baby scars.
I need your love like a boy needs his mother's side.
This is not what it is, only baby scars.
I need your love like a boy needs his mother's side.

This is not what it is, only baby scars.
I need your love like a boy needs his mother's side, Yeah.

    It is about his mother. She passed away and he wants her to come back to show her how good he is doing in life. He wants to make her proud. Which I am sure she is proud of him because she is looking down on him. And he is also thanking her for all she did for him. And saying that he loves her. And is grateful for her.

    Of mice and mens song second and sebring is written about austins mother who passed away when he was a teenager, and about how he feels since her death. It is an amazing song and austin and the rest of om&m are the best. My favorit band, one of my favorite songs. -this is not what it is only baby scars, I need you love like a boy needs his mothers side. Can't wait to see them this summer.

    I'm getting older, and though I try to do my best in life, no matter how much I eff up and fail, my mom always understands and loves me. And though I don't say thank you as much as I should, I hope she understands why. This song is very, very personal and a brave and heartfelt thing to put out there. And we should all be the better because of it. Thank you to all in of mice and men.

    I've listened to this song so many times but I saw a top comment on YouTube a few minutes ago, and it said that it was about austin's mom who died, so I looked the lyrics up to actually listen and read them and when it got to the "this is not what it is only baby scars, i need you love like a boy needs his mothers side" I was literally in tears. I had goosebumps and tears streaming down my face. It's unbelievable how one guy has the ability to touch so many people with just one song. I'll be honest, I cried like a baby listening to this, and actually knowing what it means now. Austin is absolutely amazing.
