A hell of a lot of things happen. People change. Things change. And you might not like it. But you have to take it as it comes and keep going. And if ever you find yourself in a place that you cannot find a way out of, remember me. I will be there.

You're back against a wall, or so it seems.
People are tryin' to tear down all your dreams.
You've got a smile to beat the band--
Why? None of them understand.

You don't know how strong you can be.
Sometimes it seems that you'll never really see.
Just how far you've come is amazing--
In spite of every little thing.

Now, I understand that he ain't got much confidence.
Why can't he see how bright he shines, doesn't make much sense.
His timing is crap sometimes, but it's better than living in a shell
He's tried to make heaven for others, while going through such hell.

You deserve far more than anyone can give.
You're the one who gives a darn, when no one cares a bit.
Maybe you'll someday, in the mirror, see how bright it is you shine.
Until then, well, I'll be waiting for that time.

I'll be waiting for that time, yeah...

The author's comments:
A best friend of mine has been going through a lot of issues lately. While he's so good with helping others, only recently have I realized just how bad he is at helping himself. While thinking about this late one night, I just jotted this down in a journal.

I'm kind of hoping that it will help someone out who is going through a tough time. No one deserves to think badly of themselves. No matter what, everyone is capable of more than they give themselves credit for.
