Favorite Quote:
"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-Elizabeth Kubler Ross


V1:
Living life in black and white,
Always having to pick sides,
Always having to decide.

V2:
No life exists in his hazel eyes,
No joy exists in his pitiful life,
No one to confide in.

BRIDGE:
Don’t give up hope,
Let your guard down.

CH1:
You can escape this house tonight,
Just take my hand and I’ll help you win this fight,
You’re not as weak as you believe,
Take my hand and you will see.
You can run away tonight,
Out of the dark and into the light,
Take my hand and don’t let go,
Let me teach you everything I know.

V3:
Small paint brush in his right hand,
Painting to forget the life he planned,
Of happiness and love.

V4:
Painting a sunset of red and gold,
Wishing there was someone there to hold
Him, and tell him everything’s alright

BRIDGE:
Don’t stop hoping.

CH2:
We can escape this house tonight,
Just take my hand and I’ll help you win this fight,
You’re not as weak as you believe,
Take my hand and you will see,
We can run away tonight,
Out of the dark and into the light,
Take my hand and don’t let go,
Let us escape into the unknown.

Basically I woke-up in the middle of the night with the picture of this boy with gorgeous hazel eyes, who looked so sad and unwanted. I then began writing and after a lot of editing, I ended up with this song. Tell me what you think (:
