ContentEdit

The song is a ballad that tells of a young man's attempts to express his love to his father, despite the father's constant distance from his son. Later, the man grows to hate his father for being so unresponsive, eventually cursing his father upon the father's death. Later, at the funeral service for his father, the man sees an image of Jesus on the cross; this image then reminds the man that he "hadn't been unloved or alone all his life".

A music video was released for the song, directed by Trey Fanjoy. The video follows the song's lyrics, beginning with a little boy standing in the yard as his father drives up. Then, the video shifts to a funeral, where Wayne is shown singing while he stands beside the casket.
