    I believe that during an interview John stated it was a song about his relationship with his father when he was younger. He said he and his father went through a rough patch when his mother died from cancer, and his father re-married. Eventually his father divorced the step-mother and took a step towards healing their relationship. However, just like with any other song, the lyrics are up for you to interpret and fit to your life or help you get through a tough time.

    When I first heard this song I memorized it and sang it at my school talent show I had dedicated it to my ex boyfriend of six and 1/2 years who cheated on me 13 times with 7 different girls and yet after everything I love him and he says he loves me this song helped me tell him exactly how I felt the fact that all he ever did was hurt me and all I ever wanted was to be with him.
