How Could You Leave Us Lyrics
How could you leave us so unexpected?
We were waiting, we were waiting
For you but you just left us
We needed you, I needed you
Yo, I don't know what it's like to be addicted to pills
But I do know what it's like to be...

He lost his mother to drug over dose and she chose the drugs over him and he regrets it because he could've stopped her and now he lost her forever and he can't get her back now he's alone without his mother

He watched as his mum was taking pills and one day she died but he didn't know it was the pills until not long after she died. When he found out he realised he could've stoped her death if he knew what those pills where doing to her.

On “How Could You Leave Us,” NF questions his mother’s sudden departure in death, uncovering the heartbreaking moments he was able to share with her. Unfortunately, his mother’s addiction to pills caused her to overdose, and take her own life. Through this song, it is the closest NF is able to reach his mother, and therefore receive “therapy.”

His song is so much more than about his mothers overdose. His song tells you how he feels guilty for not calling her, not stopping her from her addiction that caused her to leave her children behind. He also goes into how she wasn't ever there for him, cause she was always to busy doing drubs but about how much he misses her anyways because you cant not love you mother and how now he will have kids and she wont be there to take care of them cause he couldnt stay away from drugs. It shows his self hatred because he blames himself, i would know, something similar happened to me.

This song is based off of NF's mom who died of a pill overdose. He is thinking it's her fault for leaving him, and that he is sad that she didn't fight to stay.
