If you feel lonely
And the world's against you
Take the long way home
Past the scary Jesus
And you'll find my door
With your name in diamonds
And you'll feel lonely
No more

Help me lord help me Jesus
Cause I'm lonely and tired
Help me lord it ain't easy
Cause I'm living with the blind
I got no reason to believe in anything

Help me lord help me Jesus
Cause I'm hurting inside
Help me lord it ain't easy
Cause I'm living a lie
And god I�m hoping for a reason to be here

Help me lord help me father
Cause I'm losing my mind
Help me lord it's getting harder
Cause I'm losing all the time
I got no reason to be living anymore

Help me lord help me father
Cause I wasted all my time
Help me lord it's getting harder
Cause I made a mess of mine
And god I'm hoping for the reason to be clear

So long you pretty thing
God save your little soul
The music that you played so hard
Ain�t on your radio

And all your dreams of diamond rings
And all that rock n' roll can bring you
Sail on, So long

    General CommentPossibly one of the best songs about (nearly) dying ever written. Makes me cry every time I hear it. I think Jason showed incredible bravery writing this when he was seriously ill. I can't imagine a world without him in it

    General CommentTo me, this song is about the pain of hanging on too long in a toxic relation, then the loss, unbearable feelings of pain and abandonment, and the subsequent development of somehow managing to feel just enough strength to determinedly pick oneself up, let go, and move on. Even though the future is unknown, enough is enough, and whatever happens next it's gotta be better than what was, because what was was killing you.
