Magazine, website & books written by teens since 1989

theres only so much black to light up the stars

If I spontaneously combust
and turn into dust
would you save me?

a million miles away from here
i’ll be okay my dear
if you just, save me

save me
save me

a billion people, tons of cries
i’d lie into there eyes
if you don’t, save me

don’t come over here and weep some more
i’ll point you straight to the door
if you refuse, to save me

save me
save me

trapped like a rose in a vase
i’m well fed but I can’t replace
the feeling of being close to someone’s face
changing, arranging my mind
to feel safe


I am lacking self-confidence
I will just remain anonymous
so can’t you, save me?

id actually like to just stay here
but im afraid of what will appear
so try to, save me

save me
save me

its getting late for a rescue team
but ill give you a chance to redeem
yourself, please save me

outlining the blissful darkened sky
is a nice constellation which spells goodbye
and it will save me
