    It is "A Better Place, A Better Time" by Streetlight Manifesto


    Click the link for the video. Here are the lyrics.

    The reason I posted this is because it's an unknown song, by a reasonably unknown band. This song comforted me for alot of the times I felt suicidal. It's a great song and I wanted to share, because it really means alot to me.

    Without further ado...

    And so she wakes up
    in time to break down
    She left a note up on the dresser
    and she's right on time
    You don't know anything
    right or wrong
    I said I know
    and she said so
    I wanna panic
    but I've had it so I go
    You don't owe anything to anyone

    But don't take your life
    'cause it's all that you've got
    You'd be better off just off and leaving
    if you don't think they will stop

    And when you wake up
    everything is gonna be fine
    I guarantee that you wake in a better place
    in a better time
    So you're tired of living
    feel like you might give in
    well don't
    it's not your time

    Looking through the paper today
    looking for a specific page
    Don't wanna find her full name followed by dates
    because when i left her alone
    she made a sound, like a moan
    "You're known by everyone for everything you've done"
    Fuck buying flowers for graves
    I'd rather buy you a one way non-stop
    to anywhere
    find anyone
    do anything
    forget and start again, love
    She said she won't go
    (and that's that)
    It hurts too much to stand by
    you've got to stop and draw a line
    Everyone here has to choose a side tonight
    the moment of truth is haunting you
    Don't forget your family
    regardless what you choose to do
    You can't decide
    and they're all screaming "why won't you?"
    I'll start the engine but I can't take this ride for you
    I'll draw your bath and I'll load your gun
    I hope so bad that you bathe and hunt

    Annie's tired of forgetting about today
    and always planning for tomorrow (tomorrow)
    Tomorrow and she says, "The saddest day I came across was
    when I learned that life goes on without me" (without me)
    Without me and she says, "If everyone has someone else,
    then I ain't got nobody's love to save me" (save me)
    Save me, and she says "I think I'll pass away tonight,
    'cause it seems I'll never get it right, it's just me" (just reality)

    And when you wake up
    everything is gonna be fine
    Guarantee that you wake in a better place
    in a better time
    So you're tired of living
    feel like you might give in
    well don't
    It's not your time

    Annie says she wouldn't mind
    if they never find a cure for all her problems (her problems)
    Proplems and she says, as long as she has someone near to make it clear
    she does not need to solve them (solve them)
    Solve them and she says, "oh, this loneliness is killing me,
    it's filling me with anger and resentment (resentment)
    Resentment and she says, "I'm turning into someone that I never thought I'd have to be again"

    And when you wake up
    everything is gonna be fine
    Guarantee that you wake up in a better place
    in a better time
    So you're tired of living
    you feel like you might give in
    well don't
    It's not your time

    Annie's tired of forgetting about today
    and always planning for tomorrow
    Tommorow and she says, "The saddest day i came across was
    when I learned that life goes on without me"
    Without me and she says, "If everyone has someone else,
    then I ain't got nobody's love to save me"
    Save me and she says, "I think I'll pass away tonight,
    'cause it seems I'll never get it right, it's just me" Annie says!

    when you wake up
    everything is going to be fine
    I guarantee that you wake in a better place
    in a better time
    So you're tired of living
    and feel like you might give in
    well don't
    It's not your time


    And even if it was so
    Oh I wouldn't let you go
    you could run run run run but I will follow close
    Someday you will say "that's it, that's all"
    but I'll be waiting there with open arms to break your fall
    I know that you think that you're on your own
    but just know that I'm here
    and I'll lead you home
    if you let me
    She said "forget me"
    but I can't

    gravity-perfect circle

    Lost again
    Broken and weary
    Unable to find my way
    Tail in hand
    Dizzy and clearly unable to
    Just let this go

    I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
    Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
    I choose to live

    I fell again
    Like a baby unable to stand on my own
    Tail in hand
    Dizzy and clearly unable to just let this go
    I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
    Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
    I choose to live, I choose to live, I choose to live

    Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
    Help me survive the bottom

    Calm these hands before they
    Snare another pill and
    Drive another nail down another
    needy hole please release me

    I am surrendering to the gravity and the unknown
    Catch me heal me lift me back up to the sun
    I choose to live, I choose to live

    Here's a song I find inspirational...

    Care ~ Neuroticfish

    These eyes have placed a chill into my heart
    And there'll be times when we're apart
    I keep you right with me with all my best regard

    I never told you that the world is always fair
    I always warned you of the times when you despair
    I cannot defend you but I'll try and will be there
    All that I can give is care

    Carefully you've planned your part
    The steps you made were never meant to lead so far
    Are you prepared to play this card?
    And did you consider it will be a little hard?
