Is the only way to mourn, to cry?
Is the only way to survive, to die?

I’m still awake, it’s half past two;
I’m trying to forget to remember you.
It’s not my fault; it’s not my fault;
That you’re not here with me.

Please tell me there’s another way out.
Assure me that I won’t need to scream and shout.
It’s not my fault; it’s not my fault;
So why are they still blaming me?

Now it’s already been a whole year;
The calendar is the only difference here.
I still haven’t found a way out,
Will I ever find a way?

Who is really the victim of a suicide?
Is there more than one person that loses their pride?
Is there anyone listening?
Just please hear me out.

The only way to mourn is to cry.
The only way to survive is to die.

I'm so sorry for your loss! I have lost people I love to suicide as well and had many who have tried. You can make it through this! Just believe and have faith. I believe in you.
