I believed that you would make it
I told everyone the same
Possible I couldn’t take it
So I stayed away
Not from you but from the feeling
See I’d heard everybody’s take
On your odds while you’re still breathing
And though it stopped
Some string won’t break

And I believe that you made it
I believe that you made it
But this is the sound I miss
With every single hit
All that I can see with each

Cause I miss the sound
Of sitting on the ground
And we argue and compete
Words vs melody
But I need your words right now cause
We were kids just trying to figure
But I think you had it figured out
And your mother tells me you said that I’d go far, well Anne.
You should know who taught me how

Oh I know now
Why you taught me to be loud
I promise to be loud
I’ll always be loud
Thought I couldn’t write this song
Thought it meant admitting you were gone
But now I realize it’s what keeping you alive and

I’ll tell the world that you made it
I believe that you made it
Tell the world that you made it
I believe that we made it

But this is the sound I’ll miss
With every single hit
All I can see with each.
