With no end in sight, Your Best Friend aims to tour exclusively and spread their music worldwide.

Lyrics

Dear Heavenly Father

Written By: Your Best Friend

I feel like you’re the opposite of me,
We look the same but it’s the differences that you can’t see...
I’m not saying you didn’t raise me well,
I’m just saying you brought this on yourself...
I am aware that we all make mistakes,
But yours should not happen as often as they do, should they?
If you don’t think that you are hurting yourself,
Why can’t you see that you are hurting everyone else?

I know that you know that you have some problems,
What can I do to help you solve them?

You are going to hell and there’s no one to save you on the way down…

I feel bad letting all this out this way,
I cannot help it and I could not find a better way...
You always think you’re right no matter what,
This time you’re wrong and there is nothing you can say about it...
Please understand what I am trying to say,
I do not want you to end up hating yourself someday...
Just think and be open,
I am only trying to help...

Your "dying" habits will lead you to your death...

One more left turn,
And I’ll be home to you.
And we can pretend,
Like this never happened.

One more deep cut,
And I’ll be gone for good.
And you can go on,
Living warm and happy again.

I will make you proud again;
If I can just save myself.

Now I’ll shed my skin before your naked eyes.
Do you like what I’ve become?

Now you’re here, and I cry out,
"Please father don’t see me like this."
Your open arms embrace me,
With my open wound still bleeding.
You say "What’s done is done,
We’ll go on to learn from this."
But I’m too torn apart;
I’m broken, I can’t be fixed now.

Now I’ll shed my skin before your naked eyes.
Do you like what I’ve become?

I’ve laid alone for eighteen years now.
This is how I wanna go on,
I don’t need anyone at all.

Let me lie,
One last time;
Let cold earth embrace my life.
I won’t lie;
Won’t say I’ve tried.
Still you stand strong by my side.

You find me cut open and cold,
Too dark to see what I have done.
Please father save your flesh and blood.
Don’t leave me, Don’t leave me.

I was backed into a corner,
And my hands were tied from two…
So I threw my hands into the air,
And I did what I had to do…
There were marks all over her body,
And she never speaks with her friends…
And we stopped showing up on Sundays,
And we will never go back again…

Lord, I’m not ready to have a baby,
So I give him back to you…
And I’ll take him back when I’m ready,
If you can ever forgive what I did…

If you could ever forgive what I did…

When will we be happy?
Where will we find strength?
Can we face our families?
When will you be safe?

Be safe…
