"I'll Pick You Up.." by XxShArPeSt-LiVeSxX "I'll Pick You Up.." by XxShArPeSt-LiVeSxX
You say you feel so down
Every time I turn around
And you say you should've been gone by now
And you, you think that everything's wrong
You ask me how to carry on
We'll make it through another day just hold on

Cause life starts now
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow
And you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now

I hate to see you fall down
I'll pick you up off of the ground
I've watched the weight of your world come down
And now it's your chance to move on
Change the way you've lived for so long
You find the strength you've had inside all along

Cause life starts now
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now

All this pain
Take this life and make it yours
All this hate take your heart and let it love again
You will survive it somehow

Life starts now
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down
Life starts now
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down
Life starts now

[Edit] Fixed a couple of minor errors on the picture. [/Edit]

So, this is a picture I've had in mind for..oh...a couple of weeks, I suppose? I only just drew it about three days ago though, because all my other attempts would flat out fail.

[Scroll down to the next set of bold lettering to skip sappy sentimental LONG ASS rant about this picture.]

When I downloaded this song and actually listened to it on my ipod, the first thing that came to mind was Dess and Manic. They have just helped me so much... I mean, I'm not forgetting all of you who noted me or commented to me, trying to make me feel better in your own ways [as it were, I had a group picture in mind as well, but it'll take some time if at all to get the motivation to do it], but hopefully you all know that I share a special, different bond with each of them. And both do anything they can to make me see the light.

The other day, me and Dess had a discussion about how I felt in guitar and all that. It..didn't really make me feel better afterward. I felt worse. But since then, as I've told both her and Manic, I've had this really weird feeling of confidence. It's not a big thing, it's more of a subtle feeling, but it's there. For the past three days after that conversation, even though I'm going to bed at the same time I normally do, I'm no where near as exhausted as I usually am in school. I'm actually a little more alert and focused, rather than tired, with that constant "fuck my life I'm ready to be home" deal going on through my head all day. And I mean...I've not been going to school really depressed, either. I mean I still hate going, but just..it feels different. A lot.

It's really weird, and I'm not entirely sure if it'll last, or if I'll want it to last. I'm used to remaining as depressed as I possibly can, and I'm terrified of confidence and happiness. But these two try everything in their power to show me that it's okay, that I can do things, that I can be happy and love people and trust and believe in myself.

At this point, I realize that I really need both of them. Their friendship, their love, their support. I need it. Because I don't have that here. And I don't think I will, because the friendship I have with them is beyond what anyone here could ever give me. I have to be reminded that I am important, that I am needed, that I do have people that really care for me out there, on a constant basis. And I'm really fortunate enough to have two people to help me in that.

[-AHEM- Now that I've poured my heart out here, you can read what I have to say about the PICTURE itself. /closet sap]

I decided to use Terry in this, because, like I've said before, I feel he better represents me than I do myself. I know that's actually really bad, but he is how I portray my own view on myself.
Also, I just wanted to draw the new haircut design I've had in mind for a few days now. And it was an excuse to draw Dusty and Dmitriiii, and I love them both. I wish Dmitri would've come out better though, I don't know why he doesn't look as good out of the three. :C I'M SORRY MANIIIIC.

The shading is..not my best. but whatever. I'm still really happy with how this came about, I even plan to post the original sketch because I LOVEITSOMUCH. <333

And basically, it's just Dusty and Dmitri literally supporting Terry there. I tried to make it look like the two didn't mind helping him, but Terry has more of an ashamed expression. Ashamed for trying to push them away when they're good people, ashamed for being who he is, and ashamed of the fact that he's still unsure of whether or not he wants this help.

P.S. Terry looks so weird in almost entirely white attire. |D

SKFJSKFJLSJLKFJS Yup.
