DISCLAIMER: I don't own Donnie Darko or Snow Patrol so I don't want to hear about anyone suing me.

COMMENTS: I hardly ever cry while I'm writing. This piece was an exception.

Maybe I actually am a superhero. You know, like, what would you call some one who goes back in time to die for you? Hehe, but you don't even know I'm doing this. You don't even know who I am now. That kind of sucks.

I'll sing it one last time for you,

Then we really have to go.

You've been the only thing that's right,

In all I've done.

And I can barely look at you,

but every single time I do,

I know we'll make it anywhere

Away from here.

I hope those assholes at school don't fuck with you. I guess if I'm a superhero, I'm doing a shitty job, because now I won't be there to protect you from them, or your step dad, or anyone. Fuck. I don't know what's worse, having a fucked up life, or getting run over by a dick in a bunny suit. Heheh. Frank. Asshole. God, I'm happy you don't know I exist. Now you can't miss me. Because I'm only gonna be able to miss you for a little while, and it still hurts really bad.

Light up, light up,

As if you have a choice,

Even if you cannot hear my voice,

I'll be right beside you, dear.

It sucks that the last time I ever saw you, you had to be dead. You were still pretty though. Heheheh. And it feels weird knowing the last thing you said was calling out for me to help you, but I couldn't help you. There just had to be one last regret, hadn't there?

Louder, louder,

And we'll run for our lives

I can hardly speak, I understand

Why you can't raise your voice to say.

I wonder what your real name was. I can't believe I never thought of that until just now. Damn. I like the one you chose, though. I think you look like a Gretchen. Hehehe, I wish I matched my name. Donald Darko doesn't exactly remind a person of how beautiful life is. Like you did. I miss you so fucking much, Gretchen.

To think I might not see those eyes,

Makes it so hard not to cry.

And as we say our long goodbyes,

I nearly do.

And I hope that this time you live a really long, happy, safe life. And I hope you find someone who takes care of you really good. I hope he understands you as well as I did, whoever the lucky son of a bitch is. And that you won't have to understand him the way you understood me.

Light up, light up,

As if you have a choice,

Even if you cannot hear my voice,

I'll be right beside you, dear.

Louder, louder,

And we'll run for our lives

I wish this wasn't the only way. I wish I could live without you dying. But I know that its worth it. I mean, I'm crazy, but I'm not stupid. If I save you the slightest pain, then its worth it. So here it goes, Donnie Darko, the world's worst superhero, saving the girl he loves, and whatever universe she's a part of. Hehehe.

Slower, slower,

We don't have time for that.

All I want's to find an easier way,

To get out of our little heads.

Deep down, I guess I'm kinda really glad that all this happened, or didn't happen, whatever. Because, now I don't feel alone anymore.

Have heart, my dear,

We're bound to be afraid,

Even if its just for a few days,

Making up for all this mess.

And because now I can breathe my sigh of relief.

Light up, light up,

As if you have a choice,

Even if you cannot hear my voice,

I'll be right beside you, dear.

Hehaha! Heehehaheheh…!
