The day I wrote it my mother laid into me telling me that I wasn't raising you right, and instead of tuning her out I tuned her in. And I did what I never wanted to do I attacked you the way she has always attacked me, and it wasn't right or fair it was just a family pattern that I couldn't break.
Kevin: When we were young I did and said a lot of awful things to her. Things she's forgiven but clearly hasn't forgotten. I wasn't always the best guy. Jenna: Well let's be real she hasn't always been the best either. Kevin: I know, but you've got to cut her some slack. Because what you don't know is that I wasn't always around as much as I should have been, and when I was you didn't want me to hold you. Jenna: That's not true you were the only one who could put me to sleep. Kevin: ...with your Mom's song. Singing that lullaby was the only way to get you to calm down. She wanted me to be your hero.
