about

After binge-watching "Looking For Alaska" I was inspired to write about the effects of suicide on those left behind. I have people VERY close to me that have been suicidal and I know how thin that line can be. We ask ourselves what we can do to help, wonder how and when to intervene, go over and over in our heads if we have done enough. A dark pop song was born.

lyrics

LIKE GLASS ©Noëlle Hampton ASCAP/Twinkle Twinkle Publishing

You were the wrecking ball
We are the broken wall
Was your time here just borrowed?
You were the labyrinth
We were all caught in it
But never walked the path of your sorrow

It cracks, like glass
Then we can’t see through it at all
We should have known
It breaks, we take
A little bit of each other’s pain
We can’t atone

We never should have let you go
It’s something we will always know
You were a fierce wind when you chose to be
I want to think I’m over it
But I’m drowning in my own guilt
Now trying to hear the words you’d say to me

It cracks, like glass
Then we can’t see through it at all
We should have known
It breaks, we take
A little bit of each other’s pain
We can’t atone

It cracks, like glass, it cracks
