Olivia passed away at 14 months from Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards’ Syndrome.

“One night shortly after Olivia passed away, Heather and I were in tears. As we wept, I heard these words for Heather: “Go ahead and cry, it’s fine—it’s the only way for you to feel right now.” I went to the next room and quickly recorded the words and melody onto my phone. I’ve spent the last year working to capture that exact moment—nothing more and nothing less—into a recording. This is for Heather… and for me… and I think for many more of us.”

 

Lyrics: When you call, but she doesn’t come home

When you swear that you hear her voice, but she’s nowhere to be found

When all you have is reminders that she’s gone

And nothing left can imagine going on

Go ahead and cry, it’s fine

It’s the only way for you to feel right now

Go ahead and cry, it’s fine

It’s the only way for you to heal somehow

 

When it’s cold, and it’s never gonna change

When you try, and you try, and you try, but it doesn’t do a thing

When all you have is a memory that fades

And every step is another step away

Go ahead and cry, it’s fine

It’s the only way for you to feel right now

Go ahead and cry,

it’s fine It’s the only way for you to heal somehow
