Can you hear me?
Hah, of course you do
After all you know who I am
You hate me right?
I can't blame you for that

It's been a long time since I could talk with you
So I will try to make it quick
Don't try to leave
We're both in the same spot
I know what you're going through
Just listen ok?

You're having a tough time, I know
You think it's pointless to keep going
That everything is your fault
That nothing can get better
But let me ask you something

How did you go that far without letting go?

Don't laugh at me, I'm being serious
Everything you did, even talking to me right now
Is because you want to keep going

So why jump off that bridge?

You felt it the moment you started to fall
The moment you couldn't go back
It was regret

This painful life you handled until now
This life you hated
This life you regretted
You wanted it back, or should I say
You wanted ME back?

Well I guess I'm not the best to "live" with
I get nasty from time to time, I can't deny it
But what I try to say is

You're not alone, we're all here for you

I'm not just "one" life you know
You're very important to me
And so are you to them

Lucky you, I'm feeling generous today
I'll give you another chance

But don't you try to throw away this one too, ok?
