Sweet and Sad | Reviewer: Rachel C. | 4/29/12
To me, this song captures a truely human moment that everyone will experience at least once in their lifetime. Although sung by a male, it is repairable to both genders for everyone experiences a somepoint a time where they have messed up so badly that they have lost everything. It is at those moments that the importance of family are stressed. The last few lines of "I don't wanna go...I'm not ready yet" clearly indicte a premature death, bit we can only assume that, in context with the song, his mother is dead and that would be the only way for the narrator to be held.
Overall, bravo Voltaire for writing a song so humanly significant.
