Empty Bed Lyrics

I was eight years old with a furry animal
Had to say goodbye to the fuzzy little guy
Oh no
Asked my neighbours
"Would you please take care of him for me?"
Don't let him know we're goin'
Take care of him for me
Take care of him for me

    I think this song is something about childhood. The intro to the song sounded like a video tape about to be played, like watching videos of your younger self. The song also mentions him at 8 and 13 years old. And mentions taking care of things like the stuffed animal, or the meds take care of him. It really feels that this song has something to do with change in childhood.
