JUMPED

I didn't know you were so troubled
I didn't know you were so frail
It seemed every time I saw you, you lit up the room
Don't know how I didn't know when were locked in that same jail

Cause your smile - really hid your pain
And no one can make your demons – just go away
Oh I wish I could have caught you 'fore you fell
But the truth is...
I probably would have jumped myself.

Don't know where I was when I heard the news
But I remember what I felt
Like a ton of bricks and a wave of disbelief
It had to be somebody else

I broke down but I couldn't shed a tear
Somehow jealous that you're gone
But deep inside festered what I fear
If it happened to you it can happen to anyone

Your beautiful smile - really hid your pain
And no one can make your demons – just go away
Oh I wish I could have caught you 'fore you fell
But the truth is...
I probably would have jumped myself

(bridge)
And everyone who stood around and wondered why
Well just ask them - Do you have the guts try
(these lines borrowed from and used by permission from Dani M.)
Before she hit the ground, she never felt more alive
Suicide at 25

They didn't know we were so troubled
They didn't know we were so frail
It's not written on our faces when we walk in the room
The tears of a clown, to which there's no avail

Cause a smile - can really hide the pain
And no one can make these demons – just go away
Oh I wish I could have caught you 'fore you fell
But the truth is...
I probably would havejumped myself.

(outro)
The truth is... yeah the truth is ...
I probably would have jumped myself
The truth is... yeah the truth is ...
I probably would have jumped myself
