Track 4 of our "The Friends I Have and the Choices I've Made" EP.

lyrics

16 and so afraid of my own thoughts
feeling misguided by every ones judgment
I turned to self-harm just so I could live on,
misinterpreting pain for relief.
the daily struggle between life and death became such a nuisance
That deciding to place this noose around my neck
seemed like the only answer
giving up on life seemed so easy
when I felt so alone
While I was surrounding myself by building walls, my friends were building bridges, and somehow the love flowed through the ridges
and soon these walls began to crumble, I didn't think I'd have the strength to find my way out
but all your intentions were showing
all your souls were glowing
a path of light for me to stumble out of this self-made sorrow
I felt like there was a reason to strive through again
I found the meaning behind family in these friendships
and I couldn't have made it without you
my friends I owe you everything
I should be enjoying life
And it shouldn’t be so complicated
but I’ve been burdened with the fear of being my self
you gave me hope, you gave me love and you gave my life reason.
these words will never amount to the help you gave me
but it's ment to let you know that I'm thankful for what you've done
and it will never be forgotten
