Lyrics:

And so she wakes up

in time to break down

She left a note up on the dresser

and she's right on time

You don't know anything

right or wrong

I said I know

and she said so

I wanna panic

but I've had it so I go

You don't owe anything to anyone

But don't take your life

'cause it's all that you've got

You'd be better off just off and leaving

if you don't think they will stop

And when you wake up

everything is gonna be fine

I guarantee that you wake in a better place

in a better time

So you're tired of living

feel like you might give in

well don't

it's not your time

Looking through the paper today

looking for a specific page

Don't wanna find her full name followed by dates

because when i left her alone

she made a sound, like a moan

"You're known by everyone for everything you've done"

Fuck buying flowers for graves

I'd rather buy you a one way non-stop

to anywhere

find anyone

do anything

forget and start again, love

She said she won't go

(and that's that)

It hurts too much to stand by

you've got to stop and draw a line

Everyone here has to choose a side tonight

the moment of truth is haunting you

Don't forget your family

regardless what you choose to do

You can't decide

and they're all screaming "why won't you?"

I'll start the engine but I can't take this ride for you

I'll draw your bath and I'll load your gun

But I hope so bad that you're bathe and hunt

Annie's tired of forgetting about today

and always planning for tomorrow (tomorrow)

Tomorrow and she says, "The saddest day I came across was

when I learned that life goes on without me" (without me)

Without me and she says, "If everyone has someone else,

then I ain't got nobody's love to save me" (save me)

Save me, and she says "I think I'll pass away tonight,

'cause it seems I'll never get it right, it's just me" (just reality)

And when you wake up

everything is gonna be fine

Guarantee that you wake in a better place

in a better time

So you're tired of living

feel like you might give in

well don't

It's not your time

Annie says she wouldn't mind

if they never find a cure for all her problems (her problems)

Proplems and she says, as long as she has someone near to make it clear

she does not need to solve them (solve them)

Solve them and she says, "oh, this loneliness is killing me,

it's filling me with anger and resentment (resentment)

Resentment and she says, "I'm turning into someone that I never thought I'd have to be again"

And when you wake up

everything is gonna be fine

Guarantee that you wake up in a better place

in a better time

So you're tired of living

you feel like you might give in

well don't

It's not your time

Annie's tired of forgetting about today

and always planning for tomorrow

Tommorow and she says, "The saddest day i came across was

when I learned that life goes on without me"

Without me and she says, "If everyone has someone else,

then I ain't got nobody's love to save me"

Save me and she says, "I think I'll pass away tonight,

'cause it seems I'll never get it right, it's just me" Annie says!

when you wake up

everything is going to be fine

I guarantee that you wake in a better place

in a better time

So you're tired of living

and feel like you might give in

well don't

It's not your time

And even if it was so

Oh I wouldn't let you go

you could run run run run but I will follow close

Someday you will say "that's it, that's all"

but I'll be waiting there with open arms to break your fall

I know that you think that you're on your own

but just know that I'm here

and I'll lead you home

if you let me

She said "forget me"

but I can't

My best friend of three years, Elliot, killed himself on the 9th of last month. I sent him this song on many occasions and always send this to people struggling. Three years might not sound like a long time, but when you're 15 and know someone till you're 18 you get to know them very well. This song now gets me through many hard nights when I feel like so much of a failure of a friend that I should end it all so I can be with him again. Thank you for this cover, very much.Rest in Peace, Elliot and Hazel.

This is probably the single most beautiful song I've heard, and probably the second most beautiful sound, only after a summer thunderstorm.

When he made this with Streetlight, it was easily one of my favorites. But hearing him make it even more beautiful, Kalnoky is definitely one of my all time favorite artists.
