VERSE 1:
Watch and wait
It’s too late
Watch me as I leave you

Couldn’t see
Where you’d be
and I need for you to

CHORUS:
Look at yourself
Question your thoughts
Open your mind
Be who you are

Don’t lose sight of
What’s at stake
It’s your life
That you might change

And I won’t let you
Make the worst mistake

VERSE 2:
Decisions here
Decisions there
You just didn’t seem to care
What could I do to make you whole?
So you’d become who you were before…
You just have to

CHORUS:
Look at yourself
Question your thoughts
Open your mind
Be who you are

Don’t lose sight of
What’s at stake
It’s your life
That you might change

And I won’t let you
Make the worst mistake

BRIDGE:

Every time I’d try

You could only cry

I knew it wasn’t fake

not your mistake

Don’t change for me

Don’t change at all

Be you

But you still have to

CHORUS:
Look at yourself
Question your thoughts
Open your mind
Be who you are

Don’t lose sight of
What’s at stake
It’s your life
That you might change

And I won’t let you
Make the worst mistake

Look into yourself
Be who you are
It’s your life, you’re going to change
Don’t make the worst mistake.


The author's comments:
This piece is written from the perspective of someone dealing with a friend going through depression. Its a bit direct and heartwrenching, but the point is simple; everyone around the person will suffer just as much if they have to stand by and watch and wait while their loved one considers ending his/her own life.
