i was living in a friend's backyard, sleeping in a tent trying to heal my broken heart but it wasn't working. my only companion was my guitar, i had my friends but i felt so far apart from all the humans and i would play my songs all day just to pass the time away and i was waiting for a feeling, i was waiting for a change, i was waiting for something singing songs just for myself on those days. and i picked myself up, i packed my bags went back to indiana, to that town i loved. i left florida far behind, oh my friends they all tried so hard to fix me up and i played my songs for you in my very own bedroom, and i say my own bedroom because it had been years since i had my own bedroom. with nothing on the walls, one pillow on the bed i felt like i was dead and i played real softly, didn't want anyone to hear no, only you. you listened so quietly to every singly song and you told me that you loved then when i was through and i don't know if you understand how much that meant to me but i think that you saved my life that day, i think that you saved me and forever grateful i will be. now i sing my songs out loud, as loud as my lungs will allow, i sing them for everyone. and sometimes they sing along with me and when they do i start feeling like everything might not be so wrong. and it makes my grim face smile and it makes my tired heart try and it makes me feel at least for those 20 minutes that i don't want to die, no i don't want to die. maybe things won't always be alright and maybe we will all be sad sometimes, but it's important to remember how far a little encouragement can go. and i thank you now, my friend, for that little thing you did i thank you now, my friend, for that giant thing you did, you made me want to live. maybe things won't always be alright, maybe we will all be sad sometimes but it's important to remember how far a little encouragement can go. and believe me my friend, i know.
