Description
This is a song I wrote about a subject that has always left me with a blank expression. I know many friends who have had a family member commit suicide,I never could understand why someone would choose to end their lives. I love life so much that even in my lowest points, I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Time heals all wounds, as they say. I got to thinking about someone who committed suicide, the father of a very dear friend (my best friend), and I wondered, what could have brought him to that moment, to that one particular moment? At that moment why did he decide this was the only thing to do. Out came these lyrics. I hope you like it and understand it. I also want to thank Steve Caustrita for his work on the strings. He is a good friend and is always there when I need help with my music.

There is an accompanying video to this song and my song "Cut Throat" posted on YouTube. One Particular... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3n9-xAy8Kek&feature=email "Cut Throat(Bernard Madoff)" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVNb6niy0vY&feature=related

Lyrics
On an average day
84 people will die from suicide
And an estimated 1900 adults
Will attempt suicide

Time has chased me down to this one particular moment
I don't know how I got here, I can't explain it all away
The hour glass has turned for the last time in my life
There's no turning back this time
It's a question of wrong or right

Chorus
So I look to my God to save me
God save me from myself
Save me from myself

Well,people call me what they want
But they will never understand
The daily pain I've been through with the
Remedy in my hand
No, they won't understand
Yeh, they can't understand
No, they won't understand

One particular moment in time has somehow brought to this
I question myself too many times
and now I know nothing at all

Chorus
I look to my God to save me
God save me from myself
Save me from myself

I placed my hand on the bible but the pain remained
I turn to the people but they turned me away
I look to my God to save me
God save me from myself
Yeh,save me from myself

Time has chased me down to this one particular moment
I don't know how I got here, I can't explain it all away
I look to my God to save me
God save me from...

The End.

Wow..
Anthony. I think they are worn out and want to sleep so they don't have to feel anything anymore.
Pretty emotional. Steve sounds perfect. Thanks.

See? That's what I don't understand. Our lives are full of feelings and for good reason. We grow from the sad and bad feelings and we get to enjoy the good feelings. A kind of reward for dealing with the bad and sad. Love ya, Char,

Very touchy
subject, bold effort! I believe it's more of a spiritual murder, people in their despair step out on a ledge and the dark side pushes them over that edge, at their most vulnerable moment, and then it's too late, There's no turning back, even though I'm sure they want to. I respect you for posting this and broaching this subject, very well done.

Yes, I've kind of sat on this one for years because of the subject matter being such a downer. This is actually a remix of the original that I recorded about 6 years ago. I redid it for a college project and actually like this version much better. There is the video I created for the project using this song, on youtube. Check it out. Thanks for listening and commenting.

One Particular Moment
I like some of the imagery "Time has chased me down to this one particular moment" but the lyric leaves a lot of question unanswered (How is it a "question of wrong or right").
I like the vocals, there is plenty of passion.
Steve did a nice job on the strings.

I was taking a look from the more spiritual side of it. Is it right or wrong to commit suicide in Gods eyes or even in mans eyes? "I look to my God to save me, save me from myself." Hope that helps. Thanks for listening and commenting. There is a video on youtube as well. Just type in the title of the song and it should come up. Thanks again,

Powerful topic
I have unfortunately had a person very close to me commit suicide 2 years ago. It not only the worst thing to do to yourself but it tears apart everyone close to them. It makes a wound that will never heal and questions that will never be answered. Still I think about the horror of it all quite often and it is almost as if it happened all over again. Impossible to erase from you mind. Very well delivered and touching song.

True
Every 19 minutes someone commits suicide, and every 19 minutes someone is left to deal with it.

Yes, I had to sit on this one awhile. Was afraid to put it out there because of the subject matter. Check out the video I did with it, as well. It's on youtube, just type in the title. I did it for a college project. Thanks for listening and commenting Davis, glad to hear from you.

Yeah you captured it. I like the way your vocal opens up when you jump up the octave. Nice use of synth pads. The strings add drama.

whoa
Heavy subject that hits upon emotions and a decision, that affects those around them. A loss for all, perhaps because that person may not have had the breadth in their thinking, needed to resolve their situation.

Black and white thinking combined with the pain of a difficult life, can push one to their end.

Your tune is powerful. It emphasizes the desperation involved and how it can leave those left, with the big question, why? That video turns that ? into a !

Too cool.. Lyle Lovett, Frank Zappa... Gets right to the point (of no return). The strings swallow things up pushing that whispering in your ear vocal that I love into the rear - an easy mix fix. Goods stuff, get it out to TV series Music Supervisors!
