Does anybody have any lyrics suggestion?

I'm writing another song, the title will be suicide. I'm looking to raise awareness for teen suicide, and need ideas for lyrics. Different ways in history that people have committed suicide, (looking for unusual. I mean, like the rope one is fairly common.) reasons for suicide, etc. I play an acoustic guitar, so I want it to sound country kind of, not like heavy metal. Thank you in advance for any ideas.

Shoot yourself. I'll still love you.
Hang yourself. I'll still love you.
Jump off a bridge. I'll still love you.
Whatever you decide to do.
Guess what? I'll love you.
If you want it all to end,
I'll always be your friend.
But so many you know will be so sad,
but I understand, I won't get mad.
People can't live in peace
when you're in pieces.
Yellow for your choices
yellow for that time
yellow for whatever is
going through your mind.
Yellow for that day that I
won't ever see you again
Remember yellow when you know
I'll always be your friend.
It would be a catastrophe,
I'll tell you that, my dear
To know that you aren't
always going to be here.
I'm there for you if you ever need a word.
I'm there for you no matter how absurd.
Yellow for your choices
yellow for that time
yellow for whatever it is
going through your mind.
Yellow for that day this I
wont ever see you again
Remember yellow when you know
I'll always be your friend.
Shoot yourself. I'll still love you.
Hang yourself. I'll still love you.
Jump off a bridge. I'll still love you.
Whatever you decide to do.
Guess what? I'll love you.

(Yellow is the colour of the suicide awareness ribbon.)

awesomesauce. Thank you!!! I'll see what I can do with it, and post a link to the song here in the comments when it's done. I don't do recording yet, but I can post the lyrics and maybe put a Youtube vid up.

Cool! I just thought that it maybe needed a lighter touch to it. Feel free to use anything. :)

I'll try to get youtube to cooperate so I can put the vid up, I'll link it here if it works. I keep thinking about maybe throwing a Spanish rap into one of my songs... like the spice girls if u can't dance song has that rap that the redhead did in Spanish.

for teens most of the time the suicides are caused by sentimental deceptions, bully, drugs, and unrealistic goals.

thanks. What inspired me? actually a school project... I'm currently homeschooled, my mom wanted me to do a project. So she told me pick something, either teen suicide or teen pregnancy. I picked the first one, obviously.

you just have to go online and research teens suicides, and you will have a whole bunch of choices.

THE BEATLES
A DAY IN THE LIFE.
I read the news today oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the house of lords
I saw a film today oh boy
The english army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on. Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream
Ah I read the news today oh, boy
Four thousand holes in blackburn, lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the albert hall
I'd love to turn you on

Hey, I'm not a poet either. That's helpful, thank you. If you've heard the Indigo girls, look at the ones Amy writes. My writing doesn't exactly rhyme, it's the rough style. It all comes together. The songs that Emily (the blonde) writes, they flow like water. Amy's don't flow like water, but they all come together and sound great. Amy Ray wrote: Kid fears, Chickenman, Cedar tree, and Jonas and Ezekial. Emily Saliers wrote: Power of two, Fill it up again, tether, our deliverance, something real, and come on home. Thank you for the answer. And just FYI, it's not lame. If you happen to think of something else, comment it.

Just know that ya don't have to be a poet to write great music. That actually sounds like a rap.... wonder if I can translate that into Spanish and use it!! Spice girls, the redhead (Geri Haliwell) did a Spanish rap at one point... I think the song was if U can't dance.

Green Day's 'X-Kid' is a good source of inspiration for this topic.

Hey, little kid
did you wake up late one day?
You're not so young, but you're still dumb
and you're numb to your old glory,
but now it's gone.

I fell in love,
but it didn't catch your fall.
Then I crashed, to a wall
Then I fell to pieces on the floor.
Now you're sick to death.

Bombs away!
Here goes nothing, the shouting's over.
Hey X-Kid, bombs away!
Here goes nothing, the shouting's over and out,
over and out again.

I once was old enough to know better
then I was too young to care.
but who cares?
I probably would but Hollywood is dead and gone

You fell in love,
but then you just fell apart.
Like a kick in the head,
you're an X-Kid and you
never even got started again.

Bombs away!
Here goes nothing, the shouting's over.
Hey X-Kid, bombs away!
Here goes nothing, the shouting's over and out,
over and out...

And you were searching your soul
and you got lost and out of control.
You went over the edge of joking,
died of a broken heart!

Hey, little kid
