Just Look Over Your Shoulder, Honey.

Every single one of us is broken. Some moreso than others, but we're all damaged, one way or another. So whenever you hear someone has died by suicide, some part of you recognizes that despair. That's why suicides increase in number once one person has done it. It's called the "contagion" effect. Suicide is something a lot of people are afraid to talk about.. I was one of those people. Asking someone you care about, "have you been thinking of killing yourself?" is probably one of the scariest things you can do, because you care.

We don't want to normalize the act of suicide itself, per se, but we need to make this a normal (non-scary) thing to talk about with one another.

How many people die at their own hands, feeling hopeless and alone? Number is higher than you might think.

I've had friends who've taken their own lives and stole themselves out of my life. I was mad, initially.
My first thoughts were "what gives them the right to just tap out?" then I started questioning it from a philosophical standpoint. Everything gives them the right to make a decision to end their life.The fact they have a life that they can choose to keep or to release, according to an old philosopher, is the most human act you can carry out.

So I thought about Jenny, Jamie and Shannon. I look at Robin Williams. Thought about what kind of state they must've been in to just accept death like that. Scares the shit out of me. Because like I said earlier, to a degree, we've all been there.

So I just feel like this song is just what we all want and need in our lives.


::LYRICS::
You and I must make a pact
We must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I'll be there (I'll be there)
I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I'll be there (I'll be there)
I'll be there to comfort you
Build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength
I'll keep holdin' on (holdin' on)
Yes I will, yes I will
Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, girl, is all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)
I'll be there to protect you (yeah baby)
With unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
I'll be there to comfort you
Build my world of dreams around you
I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength
I'll keep holdin' on
Ooh ooh ooh
Yes I will (holdin' on, holdin' on)
Yes I will
If you should ever find someone new
I know he better be good to you
'Cause if he doesn't
I'll be there (I'll be there)
Don't you know baby I'll be there
I'll be there I'll be there
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Just look over your shoulders honey, ooh!
I'll be there, I'll be there,
Whenever you need me, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Don't you know baby
I'll be there, I'll be there
Just call my name, I'll be there (I'll be there)
Oh oh oh oh I'll be there, I'll be there
