  • Lyrics
  • This duet with Charlie Wilson finds Ambrosius addressing what it feels like to bid farewell to fallen loved ones. "This is about me missing my grandmother and my aunt to the point where it hindered how I carried on my day," she said. "I lost my grandmother in 2003. I lost my Aunt way too suddenly to cancer and to watch her deteriorate before my eyes made me look at what is important."

    "Music became my importance," Ambrosius continued." I felt guilty for that and I know that's what they would have wanted for me. I had no choice, but to keep living. I'm out here trying to get this money so we can get to Disney World. Everyone is rooting for me and wishing me well and there's me not being able to be by their side. All the happiness this money can't buy, I wanna spend all my time with you."
