Started out at school
Always saying she wasn't good enough
Rumours spread and stories told
That she somehow heard of

Then the social network came
And it got so much badder
Telling her to just give up
So she listened to the chatter

How do you feel now she's gone
And her family is torn
How do you feel now
She's watching you live on

How do you feel now she's gone
And what your words have done
You can try, you can cry, you can plead
But you're not innocent

No

Started out with the razor
When she was shaving her legs
Then it got to a knife when
She wasn't with her parents

Always wearing jumpers and bangles
It got to suicide attempts
And then they pushed her too far
And she walked over the edge


How do you feel now she's gone
And her family is torn
How do you feel now
She's watching you live on

How do you feel now she's gone
And what your words have done
You can try you can cry you can scream
But you're not innocent

Maybe next time
You won't let it get that far
You'll shut your mouth coz
You know what the consequences are

There's blood on your hands
I hope you realise now
You killed her yourself
I hope you've figured that out

How do you feel now she's gone
And her family is torn
How do you feel now
She's watching you live on

How do you feel now she's gone
And what your words have done
You can try, you can cry, you can scream
But you're not innocent

It's too late, it's too late
It's too late, it's too late
It's too late, it's too late
It's too late, it's too late

    It's about a girl who killed herself because of mean words said by classmates and know I need to write a bunch of random words cause this thing says I have to do at least 50 words this thing is so stupid but yeah think twice about bullying someone you could kill her by saying very mean words It's not cool this song is very meaningful codi Kaye is a girl who probably gets bullied so that's why she probably wrote this song I love this girl and this song it relates to me so much like omg so much like spot on spot on now I'm trying to get to awesome if you don't know what that means then do a meaning thing and at the bottom it says the things now I'm rambling on aren't I?

    This song is simply amazing. My friend was bullied alot so she cut herself and the other day she tried to hang herself. again. So far because of bullies she had done it about six times and that isn't even counting because of her life out of school! This song needs to go on the play store so that I can get it and show my friend. She has said that she Will stop because a different girl that I'm close to drank a lot of liquid morphine and dessicin and she is in the hospital at the moment. According to my boyfriend said you should CImut Dauntless Cake Not Wrists and if you have read Divergent and Insurgent and Allegiant then u should know what that is. I totally agree with hIm.

    To teenagers and children, there's a permanent solution to every temporary problem and a temporary solution to every permanent problem. It doesn't matter if you just call her one name, or are just mean to her one time, that one time could be what pushes her over the edge. It doesn't matter if they don't put you in their suicide note. You were part of it and you can't change it now. It's too late.

    This songs meaning is basically "words hurt". Bullies say things not knowing how people will react. The saying "Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me", is the most incorrect statement in the world. Some people are strong enough to take the verbal attacks, but for other people, they might cut themselves or try suicide attempts. I am tired of bullies ruling school, and other places. Another meaning of this song is to think of the consequences of your actions.
    'If I call someone a name, will they take it as a joke? Will they take it offensively? Will they take it too seriously and cit themselves? What will happen?' Think before you speak.
