Hurt myself via words, it was a long day
Cast myself down unforgiving stairs without mercy
Insults whispered inside in my voice
Then I saw you, you told me to stop
I woke the neighbors yelling, explaining I’m less than zero
With one gentle hand to my face healing occurred
Kissed me and said fail but don’t quit
Looked into my eyes and said you’ll take me failures and all
She said figure things out and don’t go stabbing your heart
Find your solution and get back up
Fail a million times but get up a million plus one
Rather have you trying than absent swearing death is better than correction
Trying, fixing, to get things right is better than going missing
Stop hating yourself and focus you’ll stand up when those legs of yours are ready.
You saved my life
I believed suicide was better than another mistake
Better than a public display of starting from the ground again
You have saved me more times than you know
Yeah your smile and thoughtful words nourish my heart
Cried bringing deep fears to be washed away
You’ve dressed my wounds allowing me to attempt a better way.
You have my love forever now.
