Life is worth living.
They won’t be better off without you
You didn’t let them down
And if you did, it can be healed
Restor(i)ed
Resolved.

Yes, the hole is deep,
But there are stairs.

Yes, your feet are bleeding,
But there are chairs.

Someone cares
Someone cares
Someone always cares.
Something is breaking forth
Your cocoon is not a straight jacket
It’s a perfect package
For growing wings
For transformation
for Better Things
Your help is coming
Your help is on the way
Your hope is already here
Hold on

Hold on

Hold on
