You’re falling into blackness.
Encumbered by sadness.
Clouded by a thick, dark fog.
And you can’t see the clearing.
Happiness is not nearing.
You don’t know what to think anymore.
You’ve fallen down so deep.
The climb back up is way too steep.
And now you can’t sleep.
Your mind is racing.
All of these things you want to forget,
You have to keep facing.
You’ve forgotten who you are.
You’ve become numb.
Don’t know what to feel anymore.
Can’t seem to find an open door.
 
And my heart breaks.
It shatters to the floor.
Cause I hate to see you like this.
Brokenness fills me to the core.
I can’t stand to see you this way anymore.
There must be something I can do.
Anything to help you through.
You think your feelings don’t matter.
That they should just be served 
To the devil on a platter.
But let me tell you something, my Dear.
You definitely don’t deserve to shed a tear.
Your feelings do matter.
Your emotions are important.
And you think nobody hears you.
Nobody listens to your cries for help.
Nobody pays attention to the fact 
That you’re feeling blue.
But I do.
I always listen to you.
I always know when you need me.
Don’t you see?
I care about you as much as life itself.
For you, I’d throw anything away on the shelf.
But most importantly, I can’t stand to see you this way.
It troubles my mind every moment of every day.
To know that you’re in pain.
That all you’re seeing is a black, depressing rain.
And I can’t bear the feeling of you going through this
All alone.
Especially when you’re not really on your own.
I’m always hear.
You don’t have any reason to fear.
That there’s nobody.
For when you shed a tear,
So do I.
Whenever you cry,
I cry too. 
That’s how much I care about you.
 
So remember who you are.
I know you’ve suffered scar after scar.
But don’t let that hold you back.
You have great things inside of you.
Let them loose and show everyone
How great you really are.
And before you know it,
A joyful melody will be played on that guitar.
Show this world what you’re made of.
You’re a great person and a great friend.
You always try to mend
Other people’s wounds.
But did you ever once think
To heal your own cuts and bruises?
And no matter what you’re going through,
No matter where you are.
I’ll always be there to support you.
I’ll always care for you.
I’ll always listen to you.
I’ll hear you when nobody else does.
I’ll lift you up whenever you fall,
You won’t even have to call.
I’ll already know when you need me.
Cause that’s what best friends are for.
Remember our friendship rainbow.
That confirms that we’re supposed to be there for each other
Until the end, never ever to go.
