I wrote this song about 2 months after losing my father to suicide. It was the song that made me realize that this is what I want to do with the rest of my life. In his memory I am releasing this as a single for $1.50 but you can always spend more and here is why you should! All the proceeds are going to be donated at the end of every month to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Please help by donating to a foundation built around 'Understanding and preventing suicide through research, education, and advocacy.'


No matter what I do I’m a broken man,
The past always haunts us, but now I understand,
These memories of pain are a blessing in disguise,
Without them our scars would be nothing but lines,

Don’t make them be who you are,
Everyone’s got the same old scars,
We’ve all been beaten down the same,
So all you can do is love yourself, you’re not the one to blame,
No you’re not the one to blame,

When I lost my father I nearly lost my head,
How can someone I love so dear be so soon laid to rest,
He told me not to settle so now I do believe,
That thanks to you father I’m following my dreams,

Sure things still get hard,
They still do to this day,
But I use his story as reminder,
That things don’t have to be this way,
No they don’t have to be this way,

I know it isn’t easy, I know it makes you choke,
But that’s what makes us human and stronger with the hopes,
Of never digging our own graves too early in our lives,
Just loving one another in hopes the other might,
Take from this and learn from this,
And hold each other close, just know

Final Chorus
Don’t make it be who you are,
Everyone’s got the same old scars,
Keep them there as a reminder,
That each one though it pains us it only makes us stronger,

Just believe x 3
