I know a lot of people going through tough times,
I did, that's why I write rhymes,
You can hate mine,
You've now entered my mind.
I don't do this for attention,
I'm here to help the kids in detention.
See I've been there done that,
Some days just wanted to go splat.
I do understand,
See this is my plan,
To use my life to help the next person through that.
You think you're alone, well you're not,
That person you've needed, I'm taking that spot.

(Hook)
I don't wanna be alone I don't wanna feel worthless,
That's why I'm here, I wanna help you through this.

You think nobody knows what you're going through,
Everyone wants to tell you what to do.
"Just think positive, that will help you,"
But they have no idea what we go through.
I've been there; drugs, suicide, self harm,
I know what it's like to cut your arm,
Spend all night crying in bed,
Getting up wishing to be dead,
Whole body feeling like lead.
I don't say this to get your pity,
See I'm just not that petty.
I say this so you know,
There's people out there when you feel low,
There's never a reason to let yourself go.
Your life is worth something, did you know that?
In case nobody else told you, your life special.
You are not a doormat,
Don't treat yourself like that.

I don't wanna be alone I don't wanna feel worthless,
That's why I'm here, I wanna help you through this.

You know what really makes me mad?
The people that tell us it's our bad.
"If you just tried harder, if you just did more."
Here let me help you out the door.
It kills me the kids that think they mean nothing,
Because they have never been told they mean something,
That's as low as it gets, making someone give up everything,
Making someone see no point to keep on pushing.
No matter what, everyone deserves a life,
Nobody should have to get up at night,
Wondering the house looking for a knife,
Thinking they will feel better in another life.
This society we live in kills us,
Oh yea church, what are you doing to help us?
"Oh we don't talk about suicide or drugs,"
Well how many graves have you dug?

Nobody wants to here this,
They just want to think life is bliss,
Truth is it isn't, sometimes we just need a loving kiss,
But why does everyone try to miss?
That's why I'm here,
I want to help because I've been there.
Nobody should have to go to bed cryin,
Thinking life would be better if they were dyin,
Not being able to escape your own mind and,
I want to be here to keep from dyin.
That's why I do this, why I write,
So that next time you have a sleepless night,
You know somebody cares, please don't go for the knife,
Everyone deserves a chance at life.

(Hook)
I don't wanna be alone I don't wanna feel worthless,
That's why I'm here, I wanna help you through this.
