Well I know the feeling
Of finding yourself stuck out on the ledge
And there ain't no healing
From cutting yourself with the jagged edge

I'm telling you that
It's never that bad
Take it from someone whose been where you're at
Lay down on the floor
And your not sure
You can take this anymore

So just give it one more try
To a lullaby
And turn this up on the radio
If you can hear me now
I'm reaching out
To let you know that you're not alone
And you can't tell
I'm scared as hell
Cause I can't get you on the telephone
So just close your eyes
Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

Please let me take you
Out of the darkness and into the light
Cause I have faith in you
That you're gonna make it through another night
Stop thinking about
The easy way out
There's no need to go and blow the candle out
Because you're not done
You're far too young
And the best is yet to come

So just give it one more try
To a lullaby
And turn this up on the radio
If you can hear me now
I'm reaching out
To let you know that you're not alone
And you can't tell
I'm scared as hell
Cause I can't get you on the telephone
So just close your eyes
Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

Well everybody's hit the bottom
And everybody's been forgotten
When everybody's tired of being alone
Yeah everybody's been abandoned
And left a little empty handed
So if you're out there barely hanging on

Just give it one more try
To a lullaby
And turn this up on the radio
If you can hear me now
I'm reaching out
To let you know that you're not alone
And you can't tell
I'm scared as hell
Cause I can't get you on the telephone
So just close your eyes
Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

Well honey here comes a lullaby
Your very own lullaby

    This song tells you to hold on no matter what. Nothing is bad enough to make you end your own life. Others care about you, love you, and will never give in on you. How could you just end it all, when someone else cares so much about you? You can't be that selfish! "i'm telling you now, its never that bad"- fav line of the song.

    Don't end it all. Your life is precious to someone, and they will try anything, to their last breath, to keep you alive. How could you end your own life, when someone you care about cherishes it so much?

    From the point of a mother who has a teenage daughter suffering from depression, this song touches very deeply. She has contemplated suicide. She has withdrawn. She has cut her beautiful body. She is anorexic and bullemic. She breaks my heart everyday, just watching what she is doing to herself, knowing that as much as i try, i am not always reaching her. She is an amazing person, but imprisoned in a darkness she struggles with daily. Hopefully her path will brighten soon, with all the help i can manage to find for her. I am not going away baby!!

    My boyfriend and i recently did some stuff that wasn't very smart. To add to it we talked about it on facebook and my sister hacked mine and read the messages. She found out what we did and told my dad. So now im banned from him and he was grounded because i made him skip his after school detention. School got out 12 days ago and i talked to him for the first time today about 20 minutes ago. We have been dating for 1 year 3 months and 13 days...
