It makes me sad to see you like this

It angers me that you have to do this to yourself

I'm sick and tired of having to watch you pass in front of the house

Almost unable to walk a straight line

All I seem to see are the scars on your arms

And the marks around your neck

Your discoloured lips

Your pale white skin

It kills me to see you do this

I don't want to attend your funeral

But it seems like I'll be holding your little hand in your coffin soon

Tears come down my cheeks every time I think of you

I've seen the miracles you could make

And now all I can see is all the pain you have to take

It makes me sick to see you like this

Your smile used to tell me that you were doing so well

Now the track marks on your arms have another story to tell

I used to see your eyes shine in the sunlight

Now you never leave the darkness

How could you go back to this?

Destiny was calling your name

You had the whole world at your feet, waiting for you

Now you're back to chasing delusions with fishing nets

You're so close to breathing your last breath

I can't seem to let you go but our friendship was something I won't soon forget

You were great

Pleasant to be around

I hope the ones on the other side take you into their arms

And give you all the love you could ever have beyond this world

I'm sad to see that you have to end like this

But I guess now there's nothing more I can say

Because I don't know when it's going to be your last day

But until then I'll make sure to tell the girl on the other side of the mirror

That I once loved her
