  • Valery from Orlando, Flthis song is particularly about their grandmother's death from their grandfather's point of view. for example, he talked about how he couldn't travel anymore now that she's passed, because when he looks to his side while driving, she's not there anymore. "i drive around the block and i'm not looking to my right"
  • Eva from Cincinnati, OhI thought that the song "Knife Going In" was about their grandmother's death? (idk)?
