One More Light

“One More Light” ~ Linkin Park
Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?

Well I do

The reminders pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need oh
And you’re angry, and you should be, it’s not fair
Just ’cause you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it, isn’t there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?

Well I do

Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Well I do

This is for Chester. Chester Bennington of Linkin Park took his own life last Thursday what would have been Chris Cornell’s 53rd birthday. He had been devastated by the loss of Chris, a close friend of his. He was godfather to Chris Jr. and sang Hallelujah at Chris Cornell’s funeral.

It’s tragic beyond words. Chester had a wife and six children. He had battled so much trauma in his life and LP was just putting out their latest record from where this amazing song comes.  I get the impression that Chris’ death was what tipped his scales. He said he couldn’t imagine a life without him.

I don’t know what the answer is…I  just know we need to do what we can to reach out to those who are in the dark and struggling.  If you or someone you know is depressed and possibly having thoughts of self harm or suicide, please don’t hesitate to contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, confidential and 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255 or suicidepreventionlifeline.org
