She is open and honest about the trauma she endured as his daughter and the lyrics here reflect the difficult mixed emotions she felt at his passing.

I’m just down here trying to keep your coffin shut.”
Just because someone dies, it doesn’t mean the hurt and the pain they caused dies with them and it is OK to work through those pains, it is OK to share your story and it is important to do, so you can truly heal and live in peace.Elise Lieberth
