I'll Be Good
Jaymes Young Lyrics


I thought I saw the devil
This morning
Looking in the mirror, drop of rum on my tongue
With the warning
To help me see myself clearer
I never meant to start a fire
I never meant to make you bleed
I'll be a better man today

I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the time
That I never could

My past has tasted bitter
For years now
So I wield an iron fist
Grace is just weakness
Or so I've been told
I've been cold, I've been merciless
But the blood on my hands scares me to death
Maybe I'm waking up today

I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
I'll be good, I'll be good
I'll be good, I'll be good

For all of the light that I shut out
For all of the innocent things that I doubt
For all of the bruises I've caused and the tears
For all of the things that I've done all these years
And all
Yeah, for all of the sparks that I stomped out
For all of the perfect things that I doubt

I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the times
I never could, oh, oh-oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh-oh
For all of the times I never could
All of the times I never could

Yellow lamp

I have no words to describe this song. I cannot describe the feeling it unlocks for me. Literal chills every single time I listen to it. I’m currently in the phase of my life where I think I realized there’s something wrong with the way I’m living. I spend my days in negativity and suicidal thoughts. They started as jokes. But they aren’t.

I would never have the guts to actually do it because I’m such a fucking sucker to anyone. I spend my days trying to please everyone else, when I should be happy with myself first. How can I help anyone if I can’t even help myself? I know my faults, i know there are many more, but I know. But they effect me. And I spend almost every conversation I have and action I take into consideration of what type of person I am. What type of person I want to be.

I don’t want to care about everyone else’s thoughts on me.
I don’t want to judge people so often.
I don’t want to think about death so often.
I don’t want to get headaches from over thinking so much.
I don’t want to spend every second of my life contemplating and calculating my actions.
I want to be happy.
I want to be positive.
Humble, compassionate, confident, agreeable, healthy.

Hell I want to be an actor one day. I want to be confident and dramatic in the best way possible surrounded by good people.

But I’m not that way and the only way I can be is if I change. And I need to learn there’s nothing wrong with change. I need to learn that I can be who I want to be.

None of us will ever achieve our dreams if we’re all unhappy or dead.
So keep fighting because one day we will get there.

Just listening to this song it just reminds about how lonely I am. It makes me feel sad even if I have no reason to feel this way.

I’m smart.
I have no family problems and I haven’t lost too many close relatives yet.
My family is on the richer side. We’ve never had to worry about money.

Why should I feel sad?! My life is amazing, why in the world do I want to end it?!

I guess I’ve finally realized why. My mental health is far from perfect. What’s on the inside matters more then what’s on the outside. No one knows what goes on in my head, how I’m scared to close my bedroom window. I was told it’s just a “phase.” It ISNT a phase. It’s insecurity. That isn’t the only problem I have, I also suffer from social anxiety and depression. Social anxiety never got in the way until I was in 5th grade. I was scared to talk to anyone. Scared of what they would think of me. I’m even too scared to talk to family. I can’t control it, I wish I could. I wish I didn’t have to think about what I would say a minute before I had to say it. Social anxiety gets in the way with so much more then I can express.

In the end, I still suffer from depression, insecurity, social anxiety, anxiety itself, and just life itself. Ive stared down from tops building whenever I get the chance. In the end, I’m too scared to live but I’m also too scared to die.

Sorry for how long this is..

Pensei ter visto o diabo, esta manhã
Olhando no espelho e enchendo a cara com rum
Com um aviso para me ajudar a me ver mais claramente
Eu nunca quis iniciar um incêndio
Eu nunca quis fazer você sangrar

Eu serei um homem melhor hoje

Eu serei bom, eu serei bom
E eu vou amar o mundo como deveria
Sim, eu vou ser bom, eu vou ser bom
Por todas as vezes que eu nunca pude ser

Meu passado teve um gosto amargo por anos
Então eu vou negar ele e encarar
Graça é apenas fraqueza
Ou então fui informado
Eu fui frio, eu fui implacável

Mas o sangue em minhas mãos
Me assusta até a morte
Talvez eu esteja acordando hoje

Eu serei bom, eu vou ser bom
E eu vou amar o mundo, como deveria
Eu serei bom, eu vou ser bom
Eu serei bom, eu vou ser bom

Por toda a luz que eu apaguei
Por todas as coisas inocentes das quais eu duvidei
Por todas as feridas que eu causei e as lágrimas
Por todas as coisas que tenho feito todos esses anos

Sim, por todas as esperanças que eu chutei para longe
Por todas as coisas perfeitas das quais eu duvidei

Eu serei bom, eu vou ser bom
E eu vou amar o mundo, como deveria ter feito
Sim, eu vou ser bom, eu vou ser bom
Por todas as vezes que eu nunca pude ser
Ooh oh oh
Ooh oh oh
Por todas as vezes que eu nunca pude ser

I thought I saw the devil, this morning
Looking in the mirror, drop of rum on my tongue
With the warning to help me see myself clearer
I never meant to start a fire,
I never meant to make you bleed,
I'll be a better man today

I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the times that I never could.

My past has tasted bitter for years now,
So I wield an iron first, grace is just weakness
Or so I've been told.
I've been cold, I've been merciless
But the blood on my hands scares me to death
Maybe I'm waking up today

I'll be good ,I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
I'll be good, I'll be good
I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the lies that I've shout out
For all of the innocent things that I've doubt
For all of the bruises that I've caused in the tears
For all of the things that I've done all these years
Yeah, for all the sparks that I've stomped out
For all of the perfect things that I've doubt

I'll be good, I'll be good
And I'll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I'll be good, I'll be good
For all of the times I never could.

Oooh oh oh
Oooh oh oh
For all of the times I never could. ... <3

I just love it <3 Even if my neighbours hear me, whatever xD i must sing it with him :3

Hello Old friend

I honestly cried my eyes out Listening to this







At my school something happened and it made everyone believe I was a bad person to the point where I believed I was a bad person, I hated myself so much to the point where I wanted to kill myself, and even started self harming but, the horrer And pain on my mom's face when she Found out Really made me think. I was in a mental hospital for a week and my mom would stop by every day and bring me some of my favorite food because the food there sucked. I was diagnosed there with anxiety and depression, Then a little bit by a little bit I was diagnosed with OCD and PTSD, ADHD, and what really got to me And put me in shock was the fact that I was diagnosed with autism. It's now a year later and I'm doing way better I'm on meds more happy I've made good friends my grades are good I'm on an IEP ( which if you didnt know is a prgram at school for kids with special needs ) And I have to say coming back to the song still makes me cry realizing what I did to myself and the others around me.

Kevan Larcey

This was the first new song I stumbled upon when I arrived in a halfway house in Florida circa winter 2014 after surviving a wicked year long heroin addiction back home in Baltimore. I remember singing this song biking 10 miles to the call center I hated working at, only to get enough scratch to pay the insane cost of rent and a little left over for food and maybe a redbox movie on Friday nights. I was suicidal then...I was actively suicidal before then, with multiple stays in a couple of psych wards at the ages of 13 and 15. I had always struggled with every last -ism and disorder I could put a name to...therapists, psychiatrists, councilors, sponsors...they all help me but not at the time. It was later I realized how to use the tools they gave. But at that point in time, I didn't want to be helped. I didn't know what I wanted. Fast forward a year and my sons mother said she was pregnant. In denial, I couldn't handle the thought. A 20 year old junkie with a year off from hell. What worth did I have? Fast forward 5 months, im sitting in jail withdrawal from smack and crack, barely coherent as the crowd is pushing me around, feeling as though I was strapped in an ice cold straight jacket. Bottom, I have found you.

Past the nitty gritty details, I eventually found myself. For the first time, I committed to myself. To take care of myself, to love myself. And no its not what you think. I did all there was to do for a young junkie and got out what I put in but it wasn't finding sobriety. It wasn't meetings or anonymous groups or anything of the sort. I ran away from it all and found myself. And my son was the first step. I found something in my life more precious than life itself. I remember, constantly, feeling worthless and not good enough, curled up in the shower, crying, "I just want to do the next right thing! Thats it, I swear! Thats all I want! Let me be better! I want to be better!"...time, after time, after time, after time....after time.

All of a sudden, here I am. I have depression but I'm rarely depressed. I have anxiety, but I clean and play with my son instead of staring at a wall, eating my fingers, waiting for the world to end. I have dreams that have become goals that have become work that have become accomplishments. Why? How? Cuz I wanted them more than anything. I changed the way I think therfore changed the way I acted and behaved, changing the fibers of my being to be in accordance with who I wanted to be and even, who I knew deep down I already was.

When I hear this song, which I still sing to my 4 year old son at night (hence why I'm commenting on here), it brings me back to that time of being so empty and lost. And I sing this song proudly today, as an ode to who I was and how far I've come, this song being a piece of me, now and forever. "I'll be good, I'll be good. And I'll love the world like I should." Now, and forever. I will. Not of obligation but of desire.

I hope someone may read this in hopes of feeling that they're not alone in the world. Yet, your problems and demons can only be casted away by your own doing and no one else's. Persevere and never give up the ship. Stay long enough to see the sun rise.



I Love Loki♡

Dear me,

I'm sorry for hurting you so much
I have no idea why I'm doing like this
Because it's not your fault
For what the world has done to you

But I have no idea how to love
I have no idea how to treat myself good
No one ever teached me
I was living from the lies of the past

Please forgive me for being like this
I hope that I will make you proud one day
That you will not depend your happiness on others
But that you will only do it by yourself

I want you to look up at yourself
Be your own example of how it should be
You know better then anyone what you deserve
Wake up my dear and step out of this spiritual prison
Because you deserve to live

With love,
(Your future) Me.

This has become the national anthem of all the 'villains' who never asked to be

holy fuck

FUCKING HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD, TOP COMMENT FOR A REASON BUB

I think it's the anthem of abusers who grew up with abuse.

Staro the conqueror from the suicide squad

Sapphireous

@Jenifer Munmun You're right and I think it still counts. Self harm and suicidal tendencies can be viewed as being our own villains (aside from other factors of course). And we never wanted to be our own enemies, our own villains.
And when we're able to be kinder to ourselves and rise from our darkness, I think it's same as villains redeeming themselves. :)

PS: sending lots of love :) I hope you're able to fight through what you're going through.
