That stupid song, by Owl City
With gentle words and sounds so pretty

But waking up in the middle of every night
To that peaceful song, to start a fight

"This is the end." You state, matter of fact.
And I begin, again to pull you back

"I cut again." You admit to me.
And I know your wrists just bleed and bleed

I sigh, "It's 3am, wait for the sun,
Your day has only just begun...

... It can get better, my ill good friend,
And now is not the time to end."

I beg and plead for him to stay
Off the edge of the busy highway

For a year, I was the only one that knew
Of all the pain you went through

And in the end, a Saturday in January
You sang to me like a caged canary

You thanked me for the love I gave
But you were impossible to save

I begged and plead for you to try
Said that with my help you would survive

When I called the police you ran away
To the edge again, of that ****** highway

I was too late
Thanks a lot mate.

Hope you can see me from up there
And know that I am worse for wear.

Vanilla Twilight. That stupid song
That was my ringtone for so long.

I wish I could hear it one more time
Cuz that would mean my best friend was still mine.
