Back in 2010, I met a scrawny little kid when he came to my duty station and from the get go, I mentored him. I knew everything about him, favorite color, food, holiday, family member and a whole lot of other shit. He was a little goofy but he was a good kid, always positive on almost everything he did even if he hated what he was doing. I wanted him to succeed in the military and I pushed him to be the best, just like I knew he could. I lost contact with him, because he had his own life and I had mine, I told him if he ever needed anything, to call me or message me, didn't matter what time of the day or night or if I was at work or in college, I would answer. He never did. I reached out to him, telling him I was proud of him for doing everything he could. He killed himself shortly before I sent the message and every single day, I wished I had messaged him earlier or called him or done fucking something to make sure he was alright, that he was adapting to civilian life well or that he was just feeling alright. Not a day goes by where I wish I could trade places with him, give him another shot at life. He was too young and too good of a person. I miss that goofy kid every single fucking day.

my mom killed herself in the early hours on Christmas morning when I was 12. Me and my two sisters were sent to live with our grandmother. I was then sent into foster care 9 days before my 15th birthday. the homes I was sent to were verbally, mentally and emotionally abusive and the second one neglected me medically. I left that home and went to live with my boyfriend shortly after Christmas at age 17. I am now 18 and still live with him he is honestly the one who saved my life he has been the only genuine bright spot in life since my mom died.

I'm only 17 and this January I lost my dad from a drug overdose. I never knew he was doing drugs this was so sudden but he was the kindest dad ever, I guess he just had some problems, I love you dad I'll stay strong for you.

This was played at the funeral of a friend who committed suicide over a decade ago. I would hear it randomly at a store and it’s hard to keep the tears from stinging my eyeballs. I will never forget you Grizzle. I’m your huckleberry.

Step one, you say we need to talk He walks, you say sit down, it's just a talk He smiles politely back at you You stare politely right on through Some sort of window to your right As he goes left, and you stay right Between the lines of fear and blame You begin to wonder why you came Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend Somewhere along in the bitterness And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life Let him know that you know best Cause after all, you do know best Try to slip past his defense Without granting innocence Lay down a list of what is wrong The things you've told him all along And pray to God he hears you And I pray to God he hears you Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend Somewhere along in the bitterness And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life As he begins to raise his voice You lower yours and grant him one last choice Drive until you lose the road Or break with the ones you've followed He will do one of two things He will admit to everything Or he'll say he's just not the same And you'll begin to wonder why you came Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend Somewhere along in the bitterness And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend Somewhere along in the bitterness And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life How to save a life How to save a life Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend Somewhere along in the bitterness And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend Somewhere along in the bitterness And I would have stayed up with you all night Had I known how to save a life How to save a life How to save a life

Read somewhere Once met a dude on DND, and did a hella Lotta quests together made a ton of xp gold and stuff, and shared all the loot, one day he decides to give me all his loots even his enchanted items, and told me that he had a tumor growing in him and doctors weren't happy, but he promised me that, he'll keep in touch after being discharged from hospital. I still check into his account time to time. Last online 786 days ago.

Cool easter egg, when performing CPR, (Chest compressions) it's reccomended to push at 2 times per second or 120 beats per minute This song is played at 120 bpm. The song's name is how to save a life.

I still remember when I played this song and my grandma said he sings like a man that has been starving for days
wodg23
I feel like this song is one of the most perfectly written is recent times. The lyrics are poignant, almost uncomfortably so. The chorus, melody, bridge, everything is so good and catchy, let melancholy. Even his voice really suits the song, his slightly slurred words feeling on edge. It captures the message of the song so well.

My brother passed away last year and I’m trying to cope with it the best I can. He left a void in my heart that seems impossible to fill, but I know he’d want me to be happy. Diaa I love and miss you bro you were too kind and selfless for this world, and I hope you know how much of an impact you had in my life and everyone that ever knew you. You’ll never be forgotten, and I know we’ll see each other again one day. Rest easy until then bro, love you man

My friend said that he's still alive today because I listened to him. He was in a really bad place but I didn't think that he was going to kill himself that night. I'm glad that he is better now and decided to stay alive. Now, I don't really know how to save a life. All I know is to listen to people. I hope anyone who read this would try that. And if you are the one who is struggling, I hope you have a helping hand to get you out of this dark times. Because ironically, I know how hard it is to fight alone. I've been fighting alone my whole life (for the most part, at least). But at least we try. Stay strong. And most importantly, stay alive, friends.

This song makes me think of my friend who overdosed in March of this year. He called me telling me that he had a issue and wanted help. I was in trucking school and I got tied up for a couple days while testing out. After I passed my test I got a call from a mutual friend saying that they found him dead. I keep thinking that if maybe I would've called him or went over that'd he'd still be here. I've struggled with it since March and it still bothers me. RIP mason
Pistachio
I still wonder what happened in his life that made him write lyrics like this.
mssunshine9889
What saddens me the most in this song is the part where he says "pray to God he hears you". I think one of the most horrifying moments in life is when one of the people you care about the most in this world is unable to hear you and you feel like your words just hit a wall built around them and come back to you.

I haven't been able to listen to this song all the way through without crying. It throws me back to the day my daughter attempted suicide. Thank God her best friend contacted me to tell me what was going on. If you ask me that was pretty brave of a 13 year old. Fast forward to 2019 my daughters 20 now, I thank God everyday that she's still here with us. On a side note September 10th is suicide awareness day, in case anyone needs help here is the suicide hotline number: 1-800-273-8255 Absolutely a great song with a wonderful message ❤💕

"According to lead singer Isaac Slade, the song was composed and influenced by his experience while working as a mentor at a camp for troubled teenagers: One of the youngsters I was paired up with was a musician. Here I was, a protected suburbanite, and he was just 17 and had all these problems. And no one could write a manual on how to save him. Slade claims that the song is about all of the people that tried to reach out to the boy but were unsuccessful. As Slade says in an interview, the boy's friends and family approached him by saying, "Quit taking drugs and cutting yourself or I won't talk to you again," but all he needed was some support. The boy was losing friends and going through depression. He lost his best friend and could not deal with it. The verses of the song describe an attempt by an adult to confront a troubled teen. In the chorus, the singer laments that he himself was unable to save a friend because he did not know how."

I'm here just like the rest of you most likely... I lost my daughter, her boyfriend was abusing her sexually, mentally, and physically. I never saw it myself, but I never liked him. I always felt like he was harming her, but I thought I was just paranoid. Guess that was just the dad gut warning. She had come over just 2 hours before, telling us how much she loved us and was so happy to have us as her parents... I thought it was just a nice occasion. 2 hours later I get a call from my granddaughter saying that her mommy wasn't breathing and there were prescription bottles everywhere. Me and my wife called 911 and we rushed over. We found our daughter holding a letter, she explained what Brian had done to her for over 4 years... I felt sick to my stomach. My daughter was gone. And when he got home I had my 44 in hand... I just wish I had known. I wish I could go back, make it right. Like the song says, if I had only known how to save a life...
