Do you remember when you lost hope
And faith in this world? (This world! )
When will it change?

Don't say goodbye, say goodbye
Cause I know you can try to
Open your eyes it's all inside
You will wake from this nightmare
And I know you'll find a better way

Now it seems like you're bleeding just to feel alive
Your arms always tell the story
And it looks like you're living just to pass the time
Digging deeper are you trying to find
Find the strength to carry on there is salvation
Keep holding on, keep holding

Don't say goodbye, say goodbye
Cause I know you can try to
Open your eyes it's all inside
You will wake from this nightmare
And I know you'll find a better way

You've gone too far even though I know you're dying to let go
You've gone too far, you've given up
Now you have to tell yourself "where did you go wrong?"
And stop yourself from falling down

I can see you running, so far away (so far away)
I can see you running, so far away, away
Don't you give up, don't give up

    Omg this is so weird, just yesterday night, i felt exactly the same way. I really just wanted to not live anymore . . . On the verge of suicide, and barely right now i was listening to a playlist i made that didn't include this song on it. I have no idea how or why this song came up, i looked up the lyrics and read the comments and i can't believe i saw on the comments beau bokan's reason for writing this song. :o . . . I feel so much better, i can't give up. . . Thanks blessthefall, thank u beau.
    I'm so glad i got to meet u a warped tour 2012 in irvine.

    Personally, i think this song means that like if your having a tough time or life or having tough relationship problems just keep your head up.

    This is from beau bokan himself;
    There was [a] girl who walked up to me with tears in her eyes and handed me a note that pretty much said she had been on the verge of suicide, and she would have gone through with it if it wasn't for our music. We were so moved, we had to write a song specifically for her and all the kids out there that feel the same way. Our fans mean the world to us, and we want them to grow with us and have happy healthy lives.
