She's upset
Bad day
Heads for the dresser drawer
To drive her pain away.
Nothing good can come of this.

She opens it,
There's nothing there
There is only left over tears.
Mom and dad had no right, she screams
The anger runs down both of her cheeks.

Then she closed her eyes
And found relief in a knife
The blood flows as she cries.

All alone the way she feels
Left alone to deal with all the pain-drenched sorrow relief
Bite the lip just forget the bleeding.

Then she closed her eyes
And found relief in a knife
The blood flows as she cries
Wooah oh
Then she closed her eyes
And found relief in a knife
The blood flows as she cries.

Curled up,
She's on the floor.
The relief left her...
She had hoped for something more
From it
Hoped for something more
From it
And He leans down to comfort her
She is weeping
And He
Wraps His arms around
And around and around and...
The deeper you cut,
The deeper I hurt
The deeper you cut,
It only gets worse
The deeper you cut,
The deeper I hurt
The deeper you cut,
It only gets worse
Gets worse.

Now she's slowly opening...
She's slowly opening
New eyes...

Then she opened her eyes
And found relief in His life.
And put down her knives
Wooah oh
Then she opened her life
And found relief through His eyes
And put down
She put down,
Her life.

    ok so this song is about a girl who's very upset and decides to find relief through cutting herself and at the end of the song, the relief escaped her and she's still sad and in the video there's two girls and they're both cutting and they'd probably both lost a parent because there was a funeral thing. the brunette's dad finds out and he goes to her school and she's in the bathroom and he wraps his arms around her telling everything's ok and the blonde rushes to a grave that must've been her dad or something and puts her razorblade on his grave because she knows he wouldn't want her to find relief this way. it's a very touching song and i think everyone should read To Write Love On Her Arms. it changed me and my best friend's life :)

    what do you think the last part means?
    "Then she opened her life
    And found relief through His eyes
    And put down
    She put down her life"

    i think if you don't believe in god it can also mean that you hurt someone you love when you cut and that an important person in your life can help you out and it also talks about the use of drugs in the beginning of the song

    this is a bittersweet song. i dedicated it to a boyfriend because he made me not want to cut... but he just broke up with me... so all that work was for nothing...

    It's not about an upset teenager.
    It's a song written about Renee Yohe.
    Infact, I think pretty much all of Between The Trees' album is about Renee and what she went through..
    In the video, the brunette is supposed to be Renee, and the blonde, I'm not sure of.
    TWLOHA is a campaign(?) trying to help those suffering with depression & self-injury. It is not a 24-hour helpline.
    TWLOHA began with one broken girl, one painful night; addiction, depression, cutting. This is a glimpse at the five days that followed, a decision to love and to begin telling her true story.
    It's basically about getting help, and there are people out there that truly care, you just need to find the right people.

    I think it's Renee Yohe at 1:08?
