“Carry Me Down” is about mortality. In the lyrics of this song, I hypothetically fast forward to my own personal funeral. I wrote the song with the intention of giving people a sense of peace regarding mortality. In essence, it’s a letter to my friends and loved ones, letting them know that my heart is right with God, and they can take comfort in that. It’s also a way to get some final thoughts on paper, something I feel most people don’t get to do before they die. I’m not planning on passing any time soon, but I thought it was an issue worth covering now, regardless of my age.
Although it may seem depressing, it’s meant to give hope and understanding. We received an email just the other day from a fan who told us “Carry Me Down” really helped them through the grieving process regarding a friend who had recently passed.
