Kelly from Cotswolds, UkThis song is from Silent Hill 4, the room. The song is from Walter's perspective (the main villain in the game), who never knew his mother or father because they abandoned him. He got sent to an orphanage where he was sexually abused and learnt more about the Silent Hill cult. During the game we find out that he views apartment 302 as his mum (the apartment where he was abandoned, and where our main protaganist lives now) and is trying to complete the 21 Sacraments so that he can live with his 'mum' (the apartment) forever.
Emily from Los Angeles, CaActually, this song is not about a daughter singing to her mother. Relating to the Silent Hill series, and specifically Silent Hill 4: The Room, this song is about Walter Sullivan, a character from the game. Akira Yamaoka composed the music, and the singing was done by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.
