I’m standing on top of the building

Hearing the rain’s sobbing sound

Here is when I’m finally taking

The one step to the ground.


The wind whips beside my ears

The neon lights are all turned on

In a busy world like this

Who’d notice a nonentity gone


The world seems so big a place

Yet nobody would accept me

I’m sorry I can never become

The person they want me to be.


He is so much more talented

She’s a way better person than me

The world would probably be better

Without my stupidity.


I know I shouldn’t give up

I should keep trying to fight

But I have no more strengths left

I would rather take the flight.


The police sirens ringing below

Among the flashing lights they shout

They say all the comforting words

But none of my life they know about.


One step. One step. My escape.

One step. One step. All will end.

My heart shattered into jagged pieces

That nobody’s love can ever mend.


I’m slammed back onto the rooftop

Someone has grabbed me from my back

The rain mixes with all my tears

My heart aches as the world turns black.
