Do you know what the Lucy song is about?

Here are the lyrics

"Lucy"

Hey Lucy, I remember your name
I left a dozen roses on your grave today
I'm in the grass on my knees, wipe the leaves away
I just came to talk for a while
I got some things I need to say

[Chorus:]
Now that it's over
I just wanna hold her
I'd give up all the world to see
That little piece of heaven looking back at me
Now that it's over
I just wanna hold her
I've gotta live with the choices i made
And I can't live with myself today

Hey Lucy, I remembered your birthday
They said it'd bring some closure to say your name
I know I'd do it all different if I had the chance
But all I got are these roses to give
And they can't help me make amends

[Chorus]

Here we are, now you're in my arms
I never wanted anything so bad
Here we are, for a brand new start
Living the life that we could've had

Me and Lucy walking hand in hand
Me and Lucy never wanna end
Just another moment in your eyes
I'll see you in another life
In heaven where we never say goodbye

Here we are, now you're in my arms
Here we are for a brand new start
Got to live with the choices I've made
And I can't live with myself today

Me and Lucy walking hand in hand
Me and Lucy never wanna end
Got to live with the choices I've made
And I can't live with myself today

Hey Lucy, I remember your name

I loved that song for a long time. To me it sounded like his gf or daughter died.

I googled it today because I finally remembered that I wanted to know

This is what I found

John cooper initially refrained from discussing the song's full meaning, stating that it has "a gist of regret where you wish you had done things differently"[2] and "even though there's a specific story, it has a lot of interpretations that have kind of meant a lot to a lot of people already."[3]

In November 2010, at a concert at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Cooper revealed it is about a young couple struggling with feelings of regret after an abortion.[4] He retold this story and further explained his intent in writing the song in an Air 1 interview posted on Skillet's official website:[5] Skillet - Lucy Story Behind The Song.[6]

I never would have thought that. There is no real meaning to this post. I just found that and wanted to talk about it maybe
