Oh if you could see me now
(Oh if you could see me now)

It was February fourteen, Valentine's Day
The roses came, but they took you away
Tattooed on my arm is a charm to disarm all the harm
Gotta keep myself calm but the truth is you're gone
And I'll never get to show you these songs
Dad, you should see the tours that I'm on,
I see you standing there next to Mom
Always singing along, yeah arm in arm
And there are days when I'm losing my faith
Because the man wasn't good he was great
He'd say music was the home for your pain
And explain, I was young, he would say
"Take that rage, put it on a page
Take the page to the stage
Blow the roof off the place"
I'm tryna make you proud
Do everything you did

I hope you're up there with God
Saying that's my kid

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
(Oh if you could see me now)
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow
Oh if you could see me now
(Oh if you could see me now)


If you could see me now would you recognise me
Would you pat me on the back or would you criticise me
Would you follow every line on my tear stained face
Put your hand on a heart that's was cold
As the day you were taken away
I know it's been awhile but I could see you clear as day
Right now, I wish I could hear you say
I drink too much and I smoke too much dutch
But if you can't see me now that shit's a must
You used to say I won't know I will until it cost me
Like I won't know real love till I've loved then I've lost it
And if you've lost a sister, someone's lost a mom
And if you've lost a dad, then someone's lost a son
And they're all missing now, and they're all missing now
So if you get a second to look down at me now
Mum, Dad, I'm just missing you now

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now

Oh... Oh...
Would you call me a saint or a sinner?
Would you love me a loser or winner?
Oh... Oh...
When I see my face in the mirror
We look so alike that it makes me shiver

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand in disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now

Oh...
You could see, you could see me now
(You could see, you could see me now)

    I think this song is about somebodies parents that have died. He talks about them being "up there with God" which would mean heaven so that would be my first thought. But then he still looks for them in the crowd because I guess its sometimes hard to accept that they are gone, he also talks about his "tear stained face, so he's been crying... because they died, I guess his tears have some kind of dye in them to stain his face, or its a metaphor, it could be either or... or both! And then he uses a naughty word in the second verse so we wont talk about that, but then later he says they "look so alike" so he is in fact their legitimate child. As apposed to the milk man's or the pool guy's. Anyways that's what I get from this song I hope you guys like it, it's a really good song and has a lot of feeling to it whatever he is actually talking about it's really effected him a lot. If you disagree please don't dislike this comment but if you agree go ahead and like it :) thank you for your time.
