If you're squeezed
for information,
that's when you've got to
play it dumb:
You just say youre out there waiting for the miracle to come

If you can see me, you can save me
Wrap me in your arms and take me
Somewhere warm and somewhere nice
Put me there and don't think twice
I want to know how to smile
Been thinking and it's been awhile
I loved the way I knew happiness
But I have lost all self confidence
Now if you see me, you will help me
I'm not moving, I'm not healthy
Tell me what I've become
I want to lie in the sun
I want reassurance that I'm all there
I will be waiting here, i swear
If you just give me some word that I'll be okay
Then I'll wait forever and a day
Just want to be alright again
Don't want to feel this way again
Helpless and on my knees
I'm praying for you to fix me

The author's comments:
11 months ago, I was in the hospital from an overdose. I tried to kill myself because I couldn't help myself and felt no one around me was capable either. After that, I got help. Honestly, I got lucky. I want people that are feeling this way to realize they too don't have to resort to something in helplessness. They're others who know what they're going through.
