My Immortal for Families Left Behind After Suicide

If you are trying to get people to understand the pain you are going through, this haunting song can help when your own words can't explain it. If you are the one with PTSD, you should listen as well because if you think you are a burden to your family now, you'll leave them feeling like this. Stay and live long enough to heal so they can rejoice with you instead of grieve over your grave.
I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face – it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice – it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase


I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

...me, me, me.
