Witt Lowry - Last Letter Lyrics




I miss, I mi—, I miss you
Eh, fuck it!

This might be the hardest song I've ever had to write
Yeah, I dreamt about you last night
I only see you when I close my eyes tight
Yeah, I wish I told you how I felt before you left
But it just never felt right
Yeah, [*crying*]
I wish I told you everything before you left
I won't forget the day that they found the growth in your chest
The cancer took ahold of your body and then it spread
I talk to you more now than I ever did—I'm a mess
This song will never capture the pain that I could express
I learned from you that nothing is perfect, but try your best
I know you had your demons that younger me didn't get
And out of all our demons, our biggest might be regret
Relate more than ever, remember back when I would only see you every other week
And every other Wednesday, you would take us out to eat
Mom and you had split, so we're living in between
Looking up the word "divorced" to understand what it could mean
But I don't understand, Mom is with another man
You been drinking heavier, to me it was just another can
Culture full of broken homes, we were just another fam
Coulda left like other dads, you, you had another plan
So you stuck around, dealt a life that you probably would never choose
You bottled it inside and that bottle turned into booze
The Jäger took ahold and your body took the abuse
But finally found soberity, cried when I got the news
I know, been hurting more than I show
Inspired by your story, couple things you should know
I met this girl at my show, teared up by what I was told
She said, "I'm sober 'cause of you, you do way more than you know"
And I say—

And I say, "Ohh, please grant me the serenity
To accept everything I cannot change"
You, you always told me I had to do anything
To have you back, see you one day
I, I wonder if you see me when I fall, yeah
I wonder if you hear me now at all
Maybe if the world played this through speakers
I'd be loud enough to reach you, and you'll hear
My last letter for you

And I don't understand how you would stay so optimistic
You started chemo, fought the battle, never quit
That really left an imprint
And we would talk about our lives and after this
How we would live 'em different
See, Mom and you would put your differences aside
Every day she would visit, see the love and your vision
See the hurt in your smile, your wisdom is what I'm missing the most
I'll never be ready to let you go
I never felt so helpless it's outta both our control
You told me how you wanted to travel, next year you'll go
And your body had become fragile, not once did you lose your soul
We were told, it was progressing and you had less than a week
True love is every tear when we told you we had to leave
And how we would converse it, not once did we need to speak
That one day in late October you passed away in your sleep
I been cryin' when I think about it
I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, and now I live without it
I told you music was my passion, and you never doubt it
And people tell me they relate, but now I truly doubt it
Remember cryin' on your grave and yellin' up to you, "How did I lose my way?"
I won't forget that summer was some of my darkest days
Was asking for a sign, sat in my tears and prayed
When I saw that sign you sent me, that day was forever changed
I know, I know, I should've been a better me
Oh, blame me when we argue, I said things I didn't mean
Me and you are who our issues should have always been between
So I'm sorry for the lack of communication from me
I just wish that you were here, so you could watch me win a Grammy
But more importantly to build a family
I hope I make you proud and become everything I can be
I hope they play it loud and send this letter where I can't reach
Sincerely, Mark

And I said, "Ohh, please grant me the serenity
To accept everything I cannot change"
You, you always told me I had to do anything
To have you back, see you one day
I, I wonder if you see me when I fall, yeah
I wonder if you hear me now at all
Maybe if the world played this through speakers
I'd be loud enough to reach you, and you'll hear
My last letter for you

    I just found out lastnight my favorite uncle has mesothelioma. The doctor gave him 6 months to 1 year to live. Why is life so hard? It hurts so much to know I wont have him around soon... got to make the rest of my time with him special. This just sucks so bad.

  3. Nina

    I lost my grandpa on the 23rd of december 2017 to cancer and my gran on the 19th of september 2019 to sepsis and she also suffered with dementia. It was a really hard loss and even tho I wasnt extremely close to them I still think about them everyday. It was so hard to see them suddenly deteriorate and how mistreated they were because they were sick. This song really hits hard and I sometimes struggle to listen all the way through without crying

  4. Griffin Leggieri

    Why am I crying

  5. James Bass

    Witty ft Enkay47 would blow the shit out the water

  6. DSH_BIOSLIME

  10. Mr.Galaxy Gaming

    I heard this song today for the first time and I was honestly speechless a little over two years ago in August of 2017 I lost my father figure and probably one of the most important people in my life to lung cancer, I miss you so much papaw and everyday is so hard without you you were such a big part of what made me the man I am today, I just wish you’d be here to see the key points of my life you weren’t able to be there for my graduation in May and you won’t be there the day I get married, but I know that you’ll forever live inside my heart and I’ll never let your memory be forgotten. Fly high sailor, you were strong until the end and you’ll never be forgotten 8-8-17 ❤️

  11. Anthony Productions

  13. Younger Family

    I am so sorry for you bro💔

  14. wakulu riel

    When the doctor hugged him it got me. Just like me when my father died at the e.r. i was like shouting and everything till the doctor hugged me like he felt every man's lost. What a hard job to do doctor.

  15. Cohenreacts12 113

    witt you did great job on this song i fell the pain just watching this . i hope everyone is doing well love your music

  16. FexGaming - Gaming and More

    I can relate to this in someway, my friend has been diagnosed with cancer in his throat,we’ve been friends since we were 5 and we went to the same schools, we are both 17, we sometimes argue, our last argument was 3 years ago, I haven’t seen him since, but I’m going to see him in 2 days, I hope he’s ok

  17. Chris bello

    I miss my father.

  18. Nicksick Nicky

    *trigger warning* I personally feel that everyone needs to stop commenting, “I lost (insert name here) and I can’t get over it”. people need to stop looking for pity over the internet. If this genuinely upsets you, go to a therapist! Not a bunch of people that reply to your comment with “it’ll get better hun! Hang in there❤️” in the end that won’t help you, not to sound rude it’s just my opinion. We’re all sad here which is why we’re listening to this song, nobody needs any more sob stories.

    TDKswimmer 24

    I highly disagree. #teamwitt is a family, we all help each other. If you dont understand what its like to lose a loved one it can tear you whole. I don't know your story and you dont know mine. But just because someone is in pain you should never tell what they can and cannot post. They are here for help, not to be bullied.

    Nicksick Nicky

    TDKswimmer 24 I never said they couldn’t post certain things, it was just my opinion. I’ve lost many people in my life so I can understand.

  19. Taylor Ortiz

    Idk about y’all but the most sad part for me is when the son and dad was laughing together and having fun

    Can’t relate

  20. VictorIsNotBad IHOPE

    Holy shit ❤️❤️❤️

  21. Lauren

    Wow, I cry every time.

  22. Ziot Ghoul

  23. Ejder Katili Braum

  24. Nurul Ain Jusoh

    Literally cry

  25. Angel Granados

    Honestly cant listen to this without breaking down. I miss my dad and I wish I can talk to him on last time before he left and tell him the things I he never heard me say to him. I still try to move on and keep him in my memories but cant I walk out my room every day hopeing he is still in his favorite recliner watching TV but all i see is a empty one instead. I miss you dad.

    Answer that phone call, go visit, hug them and tell them you love them every chance you can. I’ve learned so much after losing my mom, my whole life was turned upside down in a week. I never understood loss until I lost her. It’s true what they say, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.

  27. MrPsykobob

    My father past from pancreatic cancer two years ago. September 27/28. My dad was my best friend. I had to go back home (different state) to take care of him. Had to help the emt's bodily carry him out of the house. Witt... I miss him so much. He was my best friend. I had 4 days with him. Two verbal . Two non verbal. Thank you for sharing this. Every year has been tough. I wish my pops could see me now. Much love man. I'm a wipe the tears from my face now. It means alot to me. I'm certain you read these. Thank you. Oddly enough my pops was born 7/12. Two years older. I'm sorry brother. I'm a quit rambling. Thank you. Just thank you.

  28. Reaper Killer

    I recently lost both my Mother and Father..😔

  29. TenLettersRap

    Back to visit this song, my mother in law is about to die from cancer and some of these lyrics are speaking even louder to me...😭

  30. Michael Gilbert

    one day in late october...

  31. Melancholic

    Today is October 27, 2019. This song made me cry and my chest hurts. Today is the anniversary of his passing. Thinking of you today Witt Lowry.

  32. stephen hoffman

    Might not have lost my dad but i lost my grandpa and this song literally makes me cry every time I hear it come on I won’t forget the day I had to say goodbye

  33. ss10

    It's been four years... Wishing the Richards family the best

  34. Tempt ._.

    This acc made me cry 😭

  35. Dillon Shepherd

  36. gracesongg

  37. Siya Zwane

    When he said 'You bottled it inside and that bottle turned into booz' I felt that

  38. DrazyTrill music

    I'm just saying you should have way more views than it does shout out to you man keep that real music going 💪💯💯

  39. No Mate

    This is gay

  40. Acidous

    I remember listening to this song and thought "This makes me upset". My mum just died yesterday, the cause is not yet known but all I think now when I listen to this is "I miss you" and "I wish I did more". I'll forever love you mum, wherever you are now I hope you're watching over me.

  41. Lauren

    Wow just heard of him and he made me cry already.

  42. Ronnie Powers

    i can never tell you how much this song means to me. how much meeting you in Cleveland meant to me, and how much seeing you perform it meant to me.

  43. McBOSS T. Duck

    You’re underrated. You are amazing and I love you.

  44. Logan Johnson

    Had a homie commit suicide a little over a month ago another overdose last night. This song be hittin hard right now respectively.

  48. Misfit Marsh

    Witt lowry+NF is what my life needs...

  49. insane jake

    I can't imagine loosing my dad lost my grand pa and this song hit hard 💔

  50. paul liseo

    What got me was when he fell in the drs arms. Hit me hard.

  51. Sky

    When he says "Miss your smile, miss your laugh", it makes me cry because it reminds me of my mentally handicapped aunt. She passed away last summer and I cried a lot. I was in the room next to hers and I saw my family crying and knew. And now, every night I cry myself to sleep. I relate to a lot of this song. Even though he says he truly doubts it, he shouldn't because it's true. If you have lost someone and cry every night like me, don't. If you need to, get it out. Try not to think about them and think about other things if possible. If you try and find something else to think about, the crying and suffering will suppress itself.

  52. madwavesd

    Bro I ve been listening to that masterpiece and I really wanna tell ya how much this thing really left an imprint on me just the feeling of this vibe going through the body the chill this little tear in the corner of the eyes...

Anyways this text is getting way too long keep going u'll be breaking through and have the wonderful life u deserve cause if u believe man I m telling u u deserve all of it

  53. TheHalo3odstfan

    I lost my dad to cancer in 2012. I was in 8th grade at the time. Tomorrow will be 7 years since his passing. Cherish every moment with your loved ones. I just wish he were still here. :(

    Every time I hear this song it reminds me of my friend Santee who died just not even a year ago and it hurts to know he's gone and I thank Witt Lory for all he's done he made me strong after hearing this song and I know he's smiling down on me saying I'm proud of you little man

  57. Lee Eubanks

    I hope every single person who has lost someone they cared about deeply finds peace and finds happiness once again.. Thank you Witt Lowery.

  58. Ashley Berryhill

    Fuck..... Most of his songs give me fucking chill bumps! This man has TALENT! How people like him make beauty out of their pain makes me jealous. I can't make anything out of mine but feeling numb.

  59. callum beeney

    Witt if you dad was still here he would be so proud of you for every song album lyric and words you sing

  60. Sir Dereck the Egg

    Never had a song bring so many emotions to me everytime I listen. The live performance in Manchester was the most beautiful thing I've ever experienced. The pure passion and emotion coming out of Witt's voice is unmatched, in both the live performance and the studio.... 14 hours to Never's Road. Anyone else revisiting all his songs? <3

  81. Zach Risner

    Man, this song has got me thinking. My dad passed away about 8 years ago, when I was 9. I'm 17 now. And I unfortunately have had traumatic brain injury since then. Making it extremely difficult to remember my father. And this song has me thinking about it, I never gets better, but just keep going guys.

  82. Carly Ronquille

    I love this song so much, but had only listened on Spotify to this point. This is my first time watching this video and it is so heartbreaking seeing it. Giving me chills and tears all over again. 💔 RIP Mom 7/18/1958 - 8/1/2015

  83. Sidhartha Panigrahi

    Love tou brother.

  84. Donnil

    I'm literally shedding a few tears because this makes me think about my Aunt, she currently has cancer right now, and well... she doesn't have much longer left.. She was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma 9 years ago, which is a very rare type of cancer with her tumor starting in the eye, the doctor told her that she had a better chance to win the lottery than to get that type of cancer. She was told that she had 8 months, and today she is still alive. She was a very strong woman, she contributed to the U.S. Army, is an advocate for children, and is such an overall giver. It sickens me, to think why God takes all the best, and most positive people from us and we keep all of the negative and shitty people. It's like the more "good" we do, the quicker we are taken out of our world.

  85. SwingCasterFilms

    YOOOO THE KID IN THIS VIDEO IS FROM DIARY OF A WHIMPY KID HE IS NO LONGER WHIMPY OH MY GOD

  89. Hannah Vasquez
