The above posters meanings are great! They sound well thought! This song one of the most personal songs that Shaun has ever wrote and said he doesn't like to sing this in a full band he likes to strip it down and connect with the crowd, a little different wording but that's pretty much what he said. Well I'm going to cut to the chase, it's about his daughter that he is not able to ever see "I'm so afraid of the gift you give me" The Gift being his daughter. That's pretty much it. I love this song one of my favorites and I have even built it's own meaning for me and that's what's great about Shaun he is able to make a song where not only is it helping him cope with life it helps everyone that's listening! Love you Shaun never stop and stay true to yourself!

The music video was written and directed by Meiert Avis. The song is about a man who kills a young girl in a car crash in Southern Mexico. Each year, on The Day of the Dead, he visits the cross at the side of the road at the place where she died, and spends the night there. Meanwhile, the ghost of a little girl goes into town with a Curandero to visit her father and sister, who the man had been dating. As he is driving to the cross, he sees the ghost walking on the side of the road. The ghost of the little girl leaves candy skulls, representing her forgiveness, on the man's bed. The "Gift" is the life he took, and the forgiveness she gives him.

I feel each person's meaning to song lyrics is one of their own. And this song most strongly symbolizes the last few weeks I stayed with my girlfriend before I broke up with her. The gift was her love. I was ashamed of the lie because I had started to drift away and no longer felt for her in that manner. And that 'i didn't belong here' by her deserving of the love she showed me. Showing 'i wasn't well'. Remember. An artist's work is to be interpreted differently by each person. This is merely what this song had meant to me at the given time. (the other song I felt a lot about during that time frame was under the bridge by red hot chili peppers).
