If I Didn't Have Teenink

I can picture your face in my dreams
So close yet so far it seems

I can imagine you're two miles away
But it might be across eight states

I can imagine what your voice might sound like in my ear
In reality is it hard to understand or clear?

So many things I still don't know
How is it that I can't let you go?

How am I so concerned that you email me?
I can't believe how much I've changed once this site became my reality

I've made so many new friends
Personalities of gold and truly genuine

You've made me find my place in this life
Somewhere where I actually feel right

Bullied and shyness used to be all I knew
Before I opened up to all of you

I have more confidence walking in school down the halls
I've found it easier to put down my walls

I just want to thank you all for making life livable
Even when it got really terrible

So I can't thank you all enough for always being there for me
I don't know where I'd be if I didn't have Teenink
