I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.

no time to count and no time to see
the blessings, the fights, the memories
can’t find the time to breathe
show me gently so that I may believe

believe that i can live
for someone, for love, a moment to give
you know I’m there just not where
I hide from myself and become scared

you find me there crying,
still living, slowly dying
inside my heart is captured
inside my soul is raptured

and suddenly i laugh-a real laugh
you said “It’s okay
i though about it once.”
the bell rang, but I said “stay.”

stay with me so I can believe
teach me how to breathe
hold my hand and help me stand
count with me the blessings, the fights, the memories

so that I can believe I have a reason to live

this begins with a depressed girl who has thought of suicide. a boy in one of her classes knows the pain she's going through and helps the troubled teen change her mind.
