Sarah Yellin'

Album: 3 Doors Down (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is about a young girl who was abused and possibly raped by her father. She goes to her mother and her brother for help, but eventually takes care of the problem herself by killing him: "This time it's over, I'm gonna make it end. And now it's over; the old man is dead. Lying on the ground; Bullet in his head." >>

  • Catt from Pensacola, FlThis song is angry; it embodies the feeling of the girl who was raped by her father. She finally has too much and feels that she has no choice but to kill her father at this point.
  • Joel from Columbia, MdEmotional stuff. Similar to Areosmith's Janie Got a Gun.
