Another early piece.
|If I opened my heart would you listen,
would you even hear a word.
Would you think I was just having a moment,
would you find it all absurd.
If I was really in trouble,
would you be there to help.
Would you think I'll just get over it,
like with everything else I've been dealt.
If I just burst out crying,
would you really even care.
Or would you just patronise me,
saying oh my friend, there there.
If I was suicidal,
would you ring me everyday.
Even if you thought I'd get through it,
just to make sure i was okay.
'Cause when someone is on the dark descent,
you can generally read the signs.
So when somebody cries out for help,
make sure that you have time.
You may be standing at their funeral,
not believing it's the end.
And you will be crying yourself to sleep,
knowing you could have saved a friend.
