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

[Verse 1]
Yo, I don't know what it's like to be addicted to pills
But I do know what it's like to be...

    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.
