It's caving in around me, what I thought was solid ground
I tried to look the other way, but I couldn't turn around
It's ok for you to hate me, for all the things I've done
I've made a few mistakes, but I'm not the only one

Step away from the ledge, I'm coming down
I could never be, what you want me to
You pulled me under, to save yourself (save yourself)
You will never see, what's inside of me
I pull you under, just to save myself

Was there ever any question, on how much I could take
You kept feeding me your bullshit, hoping I would break
It there anybody out there, is there anyone who cares
Is there anybody listening, who will hear my final prayers

Step away from the ledge, I'm coming down
I could never be, what you want me to
You pulled me under, to save yourself (save yourself)
You will never see, what's inside of me
I pull you under, just to save myself

It's caving in around me (caving in, ) it's tearing me apart (tearing me, )
It's all coming down around me (coming down, ) Does anyone anyone care at all
I will never be, what you want me to
You pull me under, I pull you under

I could never be, what you want me to
You pulled me under, to save yourself (save yourself)
You will never see, what's inside of me
I pull you under, just to save myself

    I almost ended up killing myself, but then my friends saved me at the last point, better friends don't exist! And I'm now out of my suicidal thoughts! I hope that everybody will get friends like me, so they also can be saved like I did. Nobody should be left alone!

    When people turn on someone, no one wants to live. People need to stop bulling and love people for who they are.

    The meaning for me to this song nis that your life is falling apart right infront of you and you want to take your life not taking that there are people out there who wants to help you

    its about how people bully people who are a little bit different to the point where they want to kill themselves; its also about how one friend can save a life (which it says at the end of the music video) so keep your friends close.

But finally i found ffdp and they gave me releif i didnt have to think of anything other then the words coming out. I love them they have saved me. Hearing and watching this music video i have never cried harder in my life :( they are beautiful with everything they come up with!
