The Way She Feels by Between the Trees and a little about Renee Yohe and TWLOHA

Ok this is one of my favorite songs. The Way She Feels by Between the Trees. I don't know if I have posted this before so sorry if I have.
The original versions of the song cannot be embeded and the audio on here is really messed up and sounds really weird but it is the only way I can embed. Below the video is a link for the original version. (Both versions of the video may be triggering to some. Watch with caution/discretion)


Shes upset
Bad day
Heads for the dresser drawer to
Drive her pain away
Nothing good can come of this.
She opens it theres nothing there
Is only left over tears
Mom and dad had no right she screams
As the anger runs down both of her cheeks.

Then she closed her eyes
And found relief in a knife
The blood flows as she cries

All alone the way she feels
Left alone to deal with all the pain-drenched sorrow relief
Bite the lip just forget the bleeding

Then she closed her eyes
And found relief in a knife
The blood flows as she cries [x2]

Curled up shes on the floor
Relief left her she had hoped for something more
From it (hoped for something more)
From it
He leans down to comfort her
She is weeping and He
Wraps His arms around
And around and around and...
The deeper you cut
The deeper I hurt
The deeper you cut
It only gets worse

Now shes slowly opening...
New eyes...

Then she opened her eyes
And found relief in His life
And put down her knives

Then she opened her life
And found relief through His eyes
And put down
She put down her knife

The artists wrote this song sort of about Renee Yohe (who I talked about in a previous post) and part of her story. The band supports TWLOHA (twloha.com) (To Write Love On Her Arms) which is one of my FAVORITE organizations.

I just bought Renee's book, which is a compilation of her journal writings from the link below,
and I can't wait to get it and read it!!! You can read some of Renee's story
