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

"One day after my suicide."

The day after my suicide, I fell in love with my mother when I saw her crying on the floor of my room, hugging my bloody shirt with my photos scattered around her, I saw so much
Love in her eyes!

The day after my suicide, I felt how much my father loved me, no matter how hard it was,
In the midst of so much sadness, he spoke to me with tears in his eyes about how proud he was of me and how sensitive I was to others!

The day after my suicide, I saw that kiara (my dog) was more incredible than I could have imagined. Every time someone came home, she would run to the door waiting for me and, seeing that it was not me, would lie down in front of the door and continue waiting for me.

The day after my suicide, I loved it
for my brothers when I saw them sitting in the room with their eyes full of tears, they remembered the times when we played in our beautiful childhood ... What a good time!

The day after my suicide, I felt how much my best friend loved me. She was looking at our photos together and remembering all the moments!

The day after my suicide, I felt that I was important to my teachers. They blamed each other so much for not noticing ...

At night, I went to the morgue to look for my body. I get upset. I looked at myself and said: "So many dreams we had", "So many loves", "So many people to meet", "You had people who loved you and yet you threw it all up", "You have to have a lot of courage to take your life Why didn't you use that courage to win? "

Thank goodness that was just a vision.

You can read this! You are still here and can change your life forever. You are better than you think you are. Prettier, smarter, stronger.

I know you will get out of this I promise you I wish you the best."

I’m sorry for being a bad daughter
I’m sorry for being a bad friend
I’m sorry for being a bad sister
I’m sorry for being a bad student
I’m sorry for not being strong enough
I’m sorry for failing
I’m sorry for giving up
I’m sorry for not being able to tell you
I’m sorry for telling you like this
I’m sorry for not seeing other solutions
I’m sorry for not believing you love me
I’m sorry for my mind not letting you sleep for weeks on end
I’m sorry for not being there when you needed me the most
I’m sorry for complaining
I’m sorry for being weak
I’m sorry for not being worth it
I’m sorry for being so stupid
I’m sorry for thinking I could do it
I’m sorry for even trying
I’m sorry for being sad
I’m sorry for being happy
I’m sorry for lying all the time that I’m okay
I’m sorry for blaming you
I’m sorry for not being able to clear my head
I’m sorry for not saying I love you
I’m sorry for the things I said
I’m sorry for wasting your time
I’m sorry wasting money
I’m sorry for seeking attention
I’m sorry for begging
I’m sorry for being a mess
I’m sorry for being lazy
I’m sorry for being fat
I’m sorry for being skinny
I’m sorry for being loud
I’m sorry for loving
I’m sorry for being annoying
I’m sorry for hating
I’m sorry for being jealous
I’m sorry for comparing
I’m sorry for being born
I’m sorry for being a psychopath
I’m sorry for existing
I’m sorry for breathing
I’m sorry for living
I’m sorry for being in your life
I’m sorry telling you specifically I’M FINE

Fading away unnoticed
Insecure
Nobody cares about me
Extremely depressed

Everyone else doesn’t care, so why should I?

Abigail Miller

To everyone who's commented about struggling with depression, suicide, anxiety, who you are, who you used to be, your past, and just HARD STUFF––you are worth more than you can imagine. You have so much to offer the world, the people in your life, and YOURSELF. You are here for a reason.


Do you know who inspires me? The people who have been through the toughest things human beings can go through and made it to the other side. You're in the middle of the TOUGH right now, but how much could your story help someone else if you keep going, if you don't give up, if you push through and become stronger through your weakness?


2017 and 2018 were really, really hard years for me.


I had a (non life threatening) medical condition that was honestly just shameful to talk about. Everyone thought I was fine, and I was going through hell. I remember laying on my bed one day and feeling like I was dying, like there was nothing I could do to stop it. It was like my soul was crumpling.


It was hard. It sucked. I don't remember having the drive to push through––I just kept crawling through time because there was nothing else to do. And then I started finding little moments, like literally seeing the first leaves in spring and thinking, "If the trees come back to life every year, I can come back to life, too." I held onto those moments. It took work and opening up to a couple people I trusted, but I started to see that there might actually be an end to the pain. So I reached out and found a doctor and a therapist and all those kinds of people, and it was rough and there were times I still felt like giving up.


But I'm so, so, so glad I didn't. 2019 was one of the best years of my life. So far, 2020 has been even better, even with all the stuff going on in the world. And I know now that it can get even better than this, but that it comes at the cost of going through the hard stuff. I don't want the hard stuff. But I'm willing to take it on if I have to because I KNOW there's something better on the other side.


I don't know what you're going through. Only you know that. I'm not gonna sit here and say that because I had this condition I know what it's like to struggle with the things you're struggling with. Because I don't.


No one knows what I went through. Even when I tell people now, they act like it wasn't a big deal, because THEY DIDN'T GO THROUGH IT. But there have been a couple people I've told my story to who took so much hope from it. The same hope I needed when I was going through the mud.


I just want you to know that you are worth it. I care about you. I don't know you, but I care about you. So do so many other people who've commented on this video.


Nothing good ever comes easy. You're already in the hard stuff––you can't change that. So wade through the muck. Find people you can trust. A therapist, a friend, a church/school/work counselor, a parent, a sibling, a significant other, a group, a safe space online like a forum or Facebook group. They won't be perfect. They'll say the wrong thing or do the wrong thing because they're human and we all mess up. But they will help the best way they can. So let them.


DON'T ROB THE WORLD OF THE MASTERPIECE THAT IS YOU.


And remember that YOU ARE STRONG. YOU ARE BRAVE. YOU ARE WORTH IT.



Wolfie Cat

Other people have said this but I’ll say it too

Remember relationships of any kind are a two way street.

I’ve had to let go of people because no matter how much I gave, they only took. They never gave back and I was the only one trying. They became emotionally dependent on me and I ended up being their emotional support. Therapist even. So I let them go for my mental health.

If you feel like you need to talk to someone but worry you’ll be hurting your friends, then get a therapist. I know not everyone can afford it but therapy is really helpful even if you don’t have any mental health things. Therapist are there to listen to you and only you.

Your friends are people too, let them vent if they need it! Relationships take time and effort from both sides.

Remember it’s never too late to be a better person. It may take time and effort but it’s worth it.

I hope this helped 5 months later



LovelyAsh

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..



Ines Hammouri

Dear me,

I wish you were braver
I wish you could do the things ur dreaming of
I wish you wouldn’t be scared of what they have to say, of the judgement
I wish you would be as confident as u claim you are, because if you did we would not be writing our deep thoughts in the comment section of a deep sas song
I Just wish you wouldn’t give a fuck, but you do


So here we are.

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 times that I never could

My past has tasted bitter for years now
So I weild 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'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, for all
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
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
For 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.

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
