ONCE:

There’s a girl in the corner, got tears in her eyes
Got a gun in her one hand, I wish she'd realise
But her life is all just suffering and pain
She says goodbye, she's got nothing to gain

And she says that she's sorry
She says that she can't live life anymore
And I know that she's sorry
She cries out for help as she falls

You only live once my friend
You only live once
No second chances for you

Now the girl in the corner is dead and has gone
But the pain that she leaves behind her goes on and on
Her torment is greater than what it was
Separation from the one who loves her the most

She says that she's sorry
She says can I try just one more time
And he says that he's sorry
There's nothing more I can do

You only live once my friend
You only live once
No second chances for you

The sands of time keep flowing
I ask myself where am I going
Do I know, do I really care
What will I do when I get there
Life is much more than seventy years
A billion tears or a million fears
It's more than a temporal thrill
What would I do if time stood still?


MIC
(not written by me... adapted from Once, by MIC)

I remembered these words during crisis management yesterday and today when a friend tried to commit suicide.

sgreybe - I wish the best of luck for you and your friend. It shows a big heart to think of them with the words you've copied here.

However, the poetry forums are reserved for member poetry. What I'm going to do with this one is move it to the Feelings forum.

Thank you,

Christopher
