Well she won't leave this night alone
And she wonґt sleep at all
And all the sorrow that she takes out on herself
It comes around and leaves her bleeding on the floor
And she knows
Yeah she knows that there's a lot of ugly things about this world

These street lights
They shine bright
As they illuminate the darkness of the pavement
They shine
As we try to write in on her arms
The love she longs to taste
And we'll find that inside
That she's a broken heart that anyone could save
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright


Feeling worthless, self-destruction
Try to take control of this
Find a purpose, reconstruction
Write it somewhere it will stick
And stars are hiding now
But there's something out there still
And she knows
Yeah she knows that there's an awful lot of beauty in this world.

These street lights
They shine bright
As they illuminate the darkness of the pavement
They shine
As we try to write in on her arms
The love she longs to taste
And we'll find that inside
That she's a broken heart that anyone could save
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

And the stars are always there
But we miss them in the dirt and clouds
We miss them in the storms
Remember hope
Remember hope
Hold onto hope
We have hope
Hold onto hope
(It's alright) (x8)

    Well theres the real meaning and there what it means to yourself. The meaning to me, is that cutting tho it will relieve you of your pain mabye, it leaves scars and you can do so much better then cutting. It saying how someone out there loves you and needs you and if writiing it on your arms is how there gonna show it so you don't cut then so be it. This song has real meaning to me, I love it. I re-found it hours after I cut up my arm and relized I was stupid, I have people that love me that could of helped me. This song has a really powerful meaning behind. Just be strong and have hope like others have hope for you.

    As a person who struggles with cutting and depression, this song is amazing to listen to because it gives me a glimpse of hope. I am extremely grateful that this song exists, because I think I would have cut myself so much more if it didn't. I am currently trying to quit cutting, and I'm glad that I have not only an amazing support system of my best friend and adopted mother, but this incredible song. Whenever I get the urge to cut myself because everything is falling down again, I put this song on and it normally goes away, and if it doesn't, I know that I can call my adopted mom or my best friend. Its hard trying to find things you enjoy doing and things that make you happy when all you've ever felt is sad and depressed, but I think that my life is taking a turn in a better direction. I just hope that everyone's can.

    I've delt with depression and self harm. I always thought that I was worthless and that I was unwanted. I felt abused by my parents. I thought my life was terrible. But twloha has opened my eyes to other people who feel the same. I now know that some people have it a lot worse than I do. I wear the bracelet everyday to remind myself that I can stay strong. Thank you.

    The love mentioned in the song isn't necessarily about a relationship. It means that when she looks down, she'll see the word love. She'll know then that she is loved, whether it be in maternal, romantic, or even in a friend way. As a self harmer, this song is inspirational. No, it doesn't make the pain go away; nothing does. But it does help me believe that there is hope in the world and people that want to save you just by saying, "i love you. "

    People all suffer form problems of the world and are afraid to seek out help for themselves and feel that all is lost that nothing will turn out the way its supposed to be, and feel that their future is lost because of past failures and faults, but what they don't realize is that even if its one person they have the power to help you out of the slump you have fallen into and that there is a lite waiting for you to step into it and embrace the live that you were given and expierence it to the frullest.
