16/04/16 (Jack's Song) Lyrics
Left the front door wide open
Maybe it's a sign that we shouldn't be going
I didn't realize it'd be so hard
You and me, sitting on the trampoline
I think one time we fell asleep
Woke up and felt...

The song is about his childhood friend who passed and he's remembering all the memories the two had together. He wished he had spent more time with him as they got older. Its about how you need to relize how important people really are to you in your life. Its a really beautiful song.

Robbie(cavetown) sounds like he's grieving something, someone he lost, remembering spending time with them with the view out of the car and waking up feeling like it had been weeks showing how long it'd been, it also sounds like he might be blaming himself because he tells himself to forgive himself, the second verse starts with him basically saying he wish his friend wasn't gone by saying that he wished they talked more online and how important each friend is.

I think the song is about someone who lost thier friend Jack and is thinking back to the time they spent together. 'Mybe it was a sign that we shouldn't be going' implies they lost him in a car accident.
