got the call at five p.m.
your roommate said you left a note
saying you could use a friend
so i went to the hospital
with my heart all choked up tight
and i prayed while i drove,
praying you would be alright

that morning you called to talk
you talked about how life was a merry go-round,
and you wanted to get off

    but i never thought i'd see you here,
    i never thought i'd hold your hand
    in your hour of need
    i always thought you'd cry for help,
    i always thought you'd understand
    that life is worth fighting for
    your life is worth fighting for

so you thought no one understood
thought tomorrow would be easier
if we went on without you
but my friend, it's a lie,
please hold on, call for help
my friend, it's your life,
you're not by yourself

so you're living on the razor's edge
we'll i've - been there myself,
holding a gun to my head

        if you hold my hand,
        can you hold on for a moment longer?
        if you know i love you,
        does it make it better?
        if you hold my hand,
        can you hold on for a moment longer?
        if you know i love you,
        we can make it together
