Cries Of The Past

Album: Cries Of The Past (2003)

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, the singer is heartbroken when a girl he loves dies in a car accident: "Next thing I remember I was crawling out from the car and seeing you lying there holding your head, kissing you for the last time the taste of blood on my lips." He realizes now how much he loved her but is thankful that she is at rest in Heaven. >>
