Take My Hand

from by The Greatest Distance



This song is about suicide: even though you think you have good reasons to do it, you'll always have someone ready to "take your hand".


Take my hand, I still have plenty of things to say. Take my hand, my mouth is full of the strength of the waves. Take my hand, bring me the joy I wished for along the way. Sometimes I like the cold that freezes me to sleep, I feel my soul abandoning me starting from my wrists. Drag me down into the water, taste my lack of breath while all I see becomes the void, eternal deep black. I traded the sword for the white flag, I gave up ‘cause I had enough. Call me a coward but I fought it first, while you were there watching me fall. I keep filling my life with illusions, vain words that cause corrosion. Wasted breath pulled out from our lungs, that wind pushes us far from the sun. But I am still here. Sometimes I like the cold that freezes me to sleep, but this I am strong enough to stand on my own feet. My scars have healed, they don’t hurt anymore, while all the void that once I saw comes back to its home. Take my hand, I will thank you as soon as I touch the sand. Take my hand and forbid me from diving again.
