  • Make it a sweet, sweet goodbye - it could be for the last time and it's not right.
    "Don't let yourself get in over your head," he said.
    Alone and far from home we'll find you

    Dead like a candle you burned out;
    Spill the wax over the spaces left in place of angry words.
    Scream to be heard, like you needed any more attention;
    Throw the bottle, break the door, and disappear.

    Sing me to sleep, I'll see you in my dreams, waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."
    Forever's never seemed so long as when you're not around it's like a piece of me is missing.
    I could have learned so much from you but what's left now?
    Don't you realize you brought this family a world of pain?
    Can't you see there could have been a happy ending we let go?

    Sing me to sleep, I'll see you in my dreams, waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

    Sing me to sleep (You've taken so much with you)
    I'll see you in my dreams, (But left the worst with me),
    Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry." Writer/s: MARCO FRISINA, PADDY MOLONEY

  • Lexi B. from San Francisco@Millie-rose: listen to the song "Nightmares" from the Last Young Renegade album...
  • Millie-rose from Wellington, United KingdomIt is about alex's brother and how he developed an alcohol problem. When he moved back to England he spiraled out of control and died. He did not commit suicide! That is a total lie! It is not funny to say stuff like that!
  • Millie-rose from Wellington, United Kingdomthis song is the most beautiful song I have ever heard and before I heard it I was lost and terrified of life but now i'm not scared anymore

  • Nikole from Gresham, OrTo end all of the rumors about this song, his brother wasn't 18 when he died. Alex and him didn't have a huge argument before his brother died, etc.

    RS: What was your relationship like with your half brother when you were young?
    AG: It was pretty cool, he definitely acted like a big brother to me bu we were just a few years too far apart to really be close. We just missed out on that serious brotherhood/sidekick thing but he was always great to be around and it was awesome to have someone to learn from.
    RS: When did people realize he had a problem with alcohol?
    AG: I don’t know. It was definitely when we were in the States but I was young so I missed a lot of it. I didn’t necessarily pick up on it at first so it’s hard for me to answer.
    RS: Was there a lot of disagreement in the house as the problem grew? Do you remember there being a lot of fighting?
    AG: Absolutely. It reached a critical point where it was impossible to ignore. As someone who was relatively young he didn’t know what was best for him and in the end he won the fight as he went back home to England. It was definitely something I picked up on even thought I never saw the whole picture at the time.
    RS: Was it the worst day of your life when you had found out he had died?
    AG: Yes… I was 12 at the time and he was 21 when he died. He spiraled out of control as many people with that problem do. It was very das [and] definitely shapes you. I don’t preach that you shouldn’t drink—I believe in user choice—but it definitely made me make sure that there are no traces of that tendency in me because of my experiences.
  • Tori from Thorntown, Inthis song saved my life
  • Carli from Pemberville, OhThis song is so beautiful
