Nothing goes my way,
And I feel nothing will ever
My luck is all used up,
And Im waiting for the day that I will feel alive.
Only time will tell
If this waiting will ever cease to die before I do
Everyones alone
If they never speak up or
Feel alive.

If you want to, I wont leave.
Just stand here by my side.
If you want to, I will listen to you cry.

What if you were gone?
How would I feel?
Time would never move.
You are not alone,
I am standing here.
I am one of many who care
Dont be so extreme,
Im trying to understand
All the reasons that keep you from joy
Life is a puzzle,
We just have to find out how these pieces fit.

If you want to, I wont leave.
Just stand here by my side.
If you want to, I will listen to you cry.

You were once a person who believed
Dont be mad because you have these thoughts

You are one of a kind
You are one of a kind
Please stay with me tonight.

If you want to, I wont leave
Just stand here by my side.
If you want to, I will listen to you cry.

Consider me a friend.
Ill be here till the end, for you.

    General CommentFrom the artist:
    This is probably one of the most emotional songs I have ever made. It is actually inspired by a pair of friends I had; one who wanted to take his own life. The other friend is trying to wholeheartedly convince him that suicide is not the only option. Although confusing, the first verse represents the suicidal person's thoughts while the rest of the song represents the thoughts of his friend.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing. It embodies so much more than the agony of this type of situation. It also is a great example for anyone who is suicidal or just generally depressed. For me, i have just discovered the frution of how amazing firends are. In my depression, to realize what accompanies friendship, it gave me the greatest lift. This song is a great example of what friendship is. I am forever thankful to its creator.
