If you have thoughts of self-harm, I hope this tune inspires you to stop and seek help. Talk to your parents, a friend, a teacher, a church member. Please just talk to someone. DLR


I'm holding on for my dear life to the railing on the roof,
and the ground below me looks up and says "What are you gonna do?'

"Are you gonna throw it all away?
Gonna end it all
Or not?"

And I'm waiting for the phone to ring, to hear your voice again.
Cause you're the only one who can save me from this dark and lonely end.

But its getting colder by the second, surrounded by these forget-me-nots.
And second thoughts.

And I want them to stop.

Please, stop.


Please, stop.

Well, the ground is looking softer every second that I wait.
And the rain is stinging on my skin as tears fall down my face.

And I hold your picture in my hand,
So you'll be with me when I go.

And I recall the moments that lead me to this.
All of my mistakes.

I say goodbye to all my memories,
And lies to my face.

Cause I was hurting on the inside,
So I hurt myself on the outside, too.

But then came you.

And you begged me to stop.

Please, stop.


Please, stop.

And I walk up to the edge,
And I kiss your picture goodbye.
And I turn around to lean back and I see you
With your hands out screaming "Stop!"

Please, stop!


Please, stop!

But you were just a little too late.
I touched your fingers on my way down.
Falling faster than I fell for you.

And when I look up,
I see you looking down on me.
You're screaming, crying, begging, pleading, weeping.

That's when everything stopped.
