My Song When I was Suicidal

Over the years there has been one song that has brought me back from the edge. Its Nineteen Stars by Meg and Dia. The lyrics speak for themselves and will post them below. It’s an amazing song (There are two versions of this song so lyrics posted might slightly different.

Nineteen Stars (Song and Lyrics by Meg and Dia)

Don’t tell me.
You’re done for.
I don’t need to hear.
You’re done for.
You can tell me what you are running from.
I need you.
More than you need you.
I can see you’re really really running.
May I ask you where you gonna run to?
And you think you’re really, really funny.
Well I don’t think you’re funny, as you do.
We all feel like we’re breaking sometime.
I won’t let you go tonight.[Chorus:]
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I’ve got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You’re my wish tonight.Don’t tell me, it doesn’t matter
I’ll tell you.
What matters.
Bare feet in the summer.
Open windows at night.
You think that no one needs you.
You have nothing to see through.
Well I need you.
Don’t I count?
Lets fight.
Show me anger.
Fierce fists clutching onto air
Show me anything
Just show me you care
Stay awake.
Stay awake survive.
I’ve got nineteen stars that I.
Gave your name.
Tonight.
I wanna scream.
Wanna scream your name.
Star light, star bright, can save.
You’re my wish tonight.

No one can catch me.
The way that you catch me.
The way that you keep me when I’m out of time.
What if I need you?
When I can’t see you?
And I’m running out of life.

Please…

Stay awake, stay awake, survive
I’ve got nineteen stars that I
Stay awake, stay awake, survive
Stay awake, stay awake, survive

I wanna scream
Wanna scream your name
Starlight, my life can save
You’re my wish, oh, you’re my wish and I’m sad
You’re my wish tonight

  1. I just wrote about something that seems to have an echo of this post in it. In case you were wondering, I’m still here for you.

  2. I like how you do the weekly wrap-up… hope it’s ok if I borrow your idea. I saw something like it on another site but I didn’t get the inspiration you gave me here. Thanks for that. And for this song.
