about

Why a song about suicide? Well a few years ago I found out that a former pupil of mine had committed suicide. I think she was around 18. She was lovely, funny and cheeky, especially in lessons. I just imagined she would leave school, go to college, get a job, and have a family, all the usual stuff.

When I heard the news, I just couldn't understand why. What could have been so bad? Was there no one she could talk to? I went online to try and find some more information. I discovered some words from her mother and I just cried .Her sense of loss and pain was too much for me. I needed to write a song.

The song is from the mother’s point of view. Any monies raised from this song will go to www.youngminds.org.uk

Suicide –The lyrics

She won’t be coming home tonight (my baby got to live)
The sun won’t light up her face (my baby got to live)
She’s not allowed to change her mind (my baby got to live)

My Baby got the sweetest smile (what was so bad)
My baby got the brightest eyes (you had to kill)
My Baby got the biggest heart (could i have done anything)
My baby got the sweetest smile (anything to stop you)

Goodnight suicide, goodnight my love, I ‘am not angry with you, i love you too much

What a waste what a beautiful waste, you could have lived the most wonderful life
but I’am not angry with you , but there’s a massive hole underneath my blouse

She won’t be coming home tonight (my baby got to live)
The sun won’t light up her face (my baby got to live)
Who knows what joy the future held (my baby got to live)

My Baby got the sweetest smile (what was so bad )
My baby got the brightest eyes (you had to kill)
My Baby got the biggest heart (could I have done anything)
My baby got the sweetest smile (anything to stop you)

Goodnight suicide, goodnight my love, I ‘am not angry with you, I love you too much

What a waste, what a beautiful waste, you could have lived the most wonderful life
But I’am not angry with you , but there’s a massive hole underneath my blouse
I re-live every day in my mind; I try to find the little clues that could have saved your life
