To Build a Home
The Cinematic Orchestra Lyrics


There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home

'Cause, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me

And, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust

hey,

i don’t know you.

i don’t know what you’re going through.

i don’t know what’s beating you up mentally.

but i know there’s something there.

don’t be ashamed, it’s normal to feel emotions.

without it, we wouldn’t be human.





but everyone says that.

everyone says they “know it will work out”.

but how do they?

they have no way to determine the future.

no way to alter the past.

they say emotions make us human, but i know there are so many people, maybe even reading this, feeling nothing.

completely numb.

after years of forcing ourselves to hide it.



here’s the thing:

we don’t KNOW that everything will work out the way we WANT it to.

things will work out.

maybe not the way your child/teenage self wants/wanted it to, but it will.

we only know the past.

and we can’t change the past.

i get it’s hard not to wallow on the unchangeable cause trust me, i’ve been there.

but honestly, it doesn’t change anything.

you’ll only feel miserable.

i don’t know who you are or where you are, but trust me.

let’s do this together.

i’m not forcing you to get out of bed, i’m not forcing you to eat or drink.

all i’m asking is you take a few moments with me.

i’ll introduce myself!

my name is philias, and i’m a fourteen year old boy.

i’m thai but live in sweden (confusing ik lol).

i have two sisters, nora and linnea.

and i LOVE nature.

now that you know me, let’s do something real quick.

take some breaths.

if your breath is erratic from crying, that’s okay.

ease your way into it.

now, once you’re ready, inhale for four counts.

hold it for four counts.

now exhale for four counts.

i have no way to tell if you did that, but if you did, just know i’m currently sitting in stockholm doing it with you.

i believe in you, lovely.

you’re not alone.

you’re not worthless.

you’re not a waste.

you’re not being annoying to anyone.

you’re not weird for feeling the way you do.

you’re not the only one feeling helpless.

allow yourself time to recover.

i’ve yet to reach that point, but it’s a process.

i don’t expect you to read this and think, “wow! this dumb kid really did help!” because that’s stupid and false.

it takes time.

don’t feel guilty for things you’ve done.

go give a hug to your mom or dad or sibling or grandparent or whoever you want in your house.

and if you have no one, find a little teddy bear.

give it a hug.

give it love.

i promise, we’ll get through this.

together.

i’m always available to talk on tiktok or discord (just ask for my user <3).

you’re so strong.

you’re so powerful.

you’re so brave.

even if it’s just by me (which it’s not), you are loved.

i. love. you.

take one more deep breath with me.



and remember:























everything is going to be okay.

stay safe, kid. <3

Dear person whoever reads this,
Hey, you, yes, I am talking right to you. I hope you will see yourself with the eyes I see you one day, because I can tell you have some awesome music taste :) You’re such a beautiful human being and worth and enough. I hope you know that you do only need yourself to be happy, I know society build up the standard that whenever you’re alone you’re not living a happy live. But in fact that is not true, if you start to realize that you actually deserve all the good things happening to you, you will treat yourself a lot nicer. I hope you let yourself rest, don’t beat yourself up over past mistakes, over regret, and over everything your mind wants to destroy you. I wish I could remove all those demons inside of your head because you deserve to feel happy. If you ever feel lonely then watch the sky, because you know, someone, at the same time is watching the sky too, maybe feeling the same way..I am glad you exist and I hope you won’t ever remove your own spot in this world, maybe you don’t feel like you belong here but, Angel, then build your home here. I don’t want you to leave this world unhappy. I want you to live every little second, I want you to feel alive, I don’t want you to see yourself just existing. You deserve it. Whatever happened, it’s not your fault, the demons in your head recognize that you have a beautiful heart, they want to take it because they have never seen such beautiful heart as yours, so why let them win over you? . You’re not selfish for isolating yourself, but you deserve to talk to someone. If you’re reading this than please never forget to breath and smile.

Don’t live up to other standards! It’s your story and not theirs.


Life for those who couldn’t, smile for those who forgot what a genuine smile is, love like there’s no other, hug like its your last one.

I love you and send you hugs.
You’re so strong, you’re still here, and I am proud of you.


YOU ARE NOT USELESS. READ THAT AGAIN.
YOU ARE WORTH IT. READ THAT AGAIN.
YOU ARE LOVED. READ THAT AGAIN.
I AM GLAD YOU EXIST. READ THAT AGAIN.
YOU ARE NOT A PROBLEM. YOU ARE HUMAN AND YOUR FEELINGS ARE VALID. READ THAT AGAIN.

You’re not a burden to anyone, don’t be afraid to talk, to use your voice.

You’re beautiful inside out.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. READ THAT AGAIN.

I WISH I COULD HUGH YOU RIGHT NOW, SO A VIRTUAL HUG WILL DO.


It hurts me to see you’re in pain :( you deserve so much man, don’t let your emotions control you. Don’t let them get the best of you.

I love u I love u I love u I love u I love u please don’t go.


I am sorry that no one is hearing you, I am sorry no one is noticing that you have lost yourself. I wish I could take your pain away, it hurts me to see the pain in your eyes. I love you trough my words and I mean it. I just want you to stay, hold on a little longer okay? Please? For me.??

I hope you have an awesome day/ morning/ evening/ night.

If it’s night for you, go to sleep, I know it’s hard to fall asleep right now but you deserve a good sleep. If you have nightmares, please, don’t let them fight you.

If it’s day for you, don’t start it by such sad music, I know it’s impossible to have a good day with such mindset but take baby steps, start by drinking two cups of water in the morning and so on.. You will start building little healthy habits.

If it’s evening for you, you’re probably overwhelmed and stressed, I want you to know it’s okay to feel the way you feel. You don’t need to be scared, of course you’re overwhelmed or stressed, I mean who wouldn’t? But it’s important to know that when you feel that way you should do a little self care, such as taking a bath for example? You deserve to feel at ease and relaxed.


And if you are somewhere in between I hope you know that you’re stronger than you think, I know you will make it :)

All I want for you is to stay and feel alive.

Now wipe those tears away and smile for me, you really don’t know much a smile can brighten someone’s day, do you? I hope one day yours will become a genuine one where you don’t need to fake it anymore, because I can’t say this enough, you deserve a good smile and to feel alive. You’re worth more than every fucking cent in this world.

I need you here with me :).

Remember crying is not weakness, let it out as much as you can but don’t let the emotion control you by giving up. It’s okay, you’re here, you’re safe, you can let it out.

Did anyone asked you, how you are feeling today? If not, how are you really? I don’t think you’re doing good, but you will feel good at one point. Don’t give yourself up.

And anyone who gets to be with you, doesn’t know how fucking lucky he/ she/ they is :).

Enough with beating up yourself for today, okay?!

- The stranger that cares about you more than anything.

I hope this is enough for you to stay today, tomorrow will be a new day, a new start, let go now. I hope you can stay.

I hope you will remember my words- becho :)

Until tomorrow, my friend :)

i’ve never felt so low before
crying myself to sleep
i am just so tired and empty, the voice in my head won’t ever shut up
and i know i’ll just never be able to meet her expectations
i don’t feel anything anymore,
it’s like i’m stuck in this in-between,
in this constant state of anxiety and awkwardness,
it’s like i’ll never be allowed to feel joy again,
like all i’m capable of is hurting others
and i feel like i hate everyone,
like i’m suffocating when i’m surrounded by my loved ones
i feel like they’ll never ever understand me, and i know they don’t
i’m lonely, i’m tired and i don’t know if it’s worth it anymore
is it ?
will the sun shine again, one day?
it’s actually raining outside
good night from france

@park jimin This is just holy stuff. To questions you cannot make and answers you cannot give while deeply immersed in sadness.
Just an idea. :)

@Richie Pooley People with good intentions will tell you that life gets better, being a teenager is hard, and that they were like you when they were your age. It feels good when people can relate, but it doesn't fix anything. I'm just some stranger on the internet a million miles away, but when I read your comment I knew you'd be just fine. Not for any of the reasons I mentioned earlier, but because you asked for help. Whatever you do just keep expressing yourself. There are bad people in this world, but in a moment of need you'll be surprised just how many good people are listening and want to help.
