    The tears roll down her face Everything is out

    of place Her mind is spinning A new life for her is beginning She stares at the floor Suddenly she's not lonely anymore The blade falls to the floor The rain comes down and pours The thunder roars She opens her eyes Depression won't exist for her anymore
