Another Song...

Another Song...

I call this one half alive. How I feel a lot...

There are tens of thousands of people who would kill to have a life,
with friends, a family, and a couple pricey little finds
but maybe it isn't as amazing as it seems?
Have you met a person with this life,
I guarantee, that,

They cry themselves to sleep at night
oh where did they go wrong?
She beats herself up constantly
cause she can't write a fucking song!

Her biggest daily goal is to make everyone else happy,
she resorted to cutting when she was only 13

And now it's half alive,
Half here and half to die,
She does not have to die
Where would the loss be in that though,

She's never had a friend
who's there until the end
why does no one see?
The tears that stream,
every tear that streams

As beautiful and cunning everyone might say she is,
her faith in all her glory is just gone,
what does she miss?
Anyone who cares enough to listen to her voice
and when she learns to use it, it will be worth all the noise

And now it's half alive,
Half here and half to die,
she does not have to die
where would the loss be in that, though,
she's never had a friend,
who's there until the end
why does no one see?
the tears that stream,
every tear that streams

*instrumental*

Sulking in a corner, isn't much fun at all, in fact,
when everyone had fled, you're left to take the fall
Oh what a mess she's made,
what a mess we've made,
what a mess I've made!

I saw you on the edge,
peering down before the long fall you see ahead,
please don't go forth
I've seen it all before
A suicidal mess who's never seen a day when she wasn't being asked to give her best
what was her best?
What was my best?

And now it's half alive,
Half here and half to die,
she does not have to die
where would the loss be in that, though,
she's never had a friend,
who's there until the end
why does no one see?
the tears that stream,
every tear that streams

Please remember you're alive,
and please do not cry
will the part of you that's living,
appreciate the time, I'm taking to
hear your pretty voice
your unknown noise,
and just stay by my side, tonight!

(You're still, half alive...
Struggling to stay afloat
I didn't know, how, though...)
