lyrics

Pouring everything we had into Holland
and watching it slip away
The long nights and long hours spent at
the plot at the end of the square
and the tree that sprawled out overhead
to look back they were some of the best
moments that we shared

You did the best that you could despite all that you had to bare
And I know you strived
to make our lives better than yours
yeah I know you tried

Not long after my tenth the family changed
we didn't understand just why things changed
But I remember the trail past the arboretum
and things became intense
At no fault of our own

Just like the Old Victorian, we spend long hours alone
And now I understand the drives, I understand
exactly where the psychosis came from
and the triggers that laden the eighties
that laden the eighties

the ones that let you down and the undue stress caused by those who lie
even with the disappointments you never stopped for us all
You did the best that you could despite all that you had to bare
And I know you strived, To make our lives better than yours
