My mom never really liked Of Mice & Men, “You can’t understand them so why does it matter?” I explained to her one day how Second & Sebring was about Austins’ mother and she almost cried. Second & Sebring was the only song by them she would let me listen to around her. The last time I said goodbye to my mom, i whispered in her ear, “I hope you smile when you look down on me, this time i’ll make you proud. I promise.” Austin will never know how much this song means to me because i now know how hard it is to lose your mother at the age of 16/17. I love you mom. I miss you. Rest easy.
We need to reblog this until he reads that because I’m not one to cry and I just almost did.
