    The other day I got an email, I almost didn't read it
    But something caught my eye right before I could delete it
    It was bold and underlined, "Please Read" was the title
    Followed by "Jake you are my idol"
    It said and I quote, my name is Nikki and I used to be dancer
    Til the day the doctor diagnosed me with cancer
    So I said goodbye to all the hair on my head
    And hello to my hospital bed
    Yeah see I was just a normal girl, it happened so fast
    There were so many days that I thought would be my last
    However the fight was tough, and the battle was long
    But I felt strong when I listened to your songs
    You were, always there for me, you helped my heart beat
    You were my only friend, kept you on repeat
    I thanks God for you every single night
    'Cause believe or not, you saved my life

    I've met a million people, been a million places
    Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
    I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
    No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives
    I've met a million people, been a million places
    Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
    I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
    No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives

    Yeah the mailman knocked said it was for me
    Handed me a box, sent from Tennessee
    Written on the top "for jakes eyes only"
    Inside was a journal and letter that he wrote me
    It said my name is Dillon I'm in 7th grade
    I'm ridiculed and picked on almost everyday
    Yeah they push me in the halls in between my classes
    Yesterday they took my books then broke my glasses
    I got no one to talk to, its like I don't exist
    Sometimes I wonder if I was gone, would I be missed?
    But lemme tell you the real reason for this letter
    You've helped me through it all, you've help me feel better
    Your words gimme confidence, your messages inspire me
    You help me find my inner strength deep inside of me
    Through all the bad times, you helped me find the light
    Believe or not, you saved my life

    I've met a million people, been a million places
    Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
    I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
    No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives
    I've met a million people, been a million places
    Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
    I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
    No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives

    I was sittin' at my table at dinner the other night
    When I noticed a little girl sittin' to my right
    She was lookin' at me like she knew me, I guess she did
    'Cause then she walked right up to, and then she said
    My name is Sami and I swear that I'm your biggest fan
    I think she even had my name written on her hand
    She said me and my brother used to listen to you every day
    Until last year, when he passed away
    I'll never forget seein' my parents cry
    When they got a call sayin' that your son had died
    Man I wish that he was here now, you were his favourite
    He had your mixtape and never stopped playin' it
    Your music gives me a feelin that I just can't describe
    It's like I got my brother back, and he's still alive
    I pray for both of you, every single night
    'Cause believe or not, you saved my life

    I've met a million people, been a million places
    Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
    I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
    No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives
    I've met a million people, been a million places
    Shook a million hands, seen a million faces
    I've had a million lows, and a million more highs
    No I haven't made a million, but I've touched a million lives

    Now let me turn the table, and talk to you
    I had a dream but you're the reason that its comin' true
    Yeah I've had some dark days, when the sun don't shine
    But you always reminded me that I would be fine
    'Cause when no else cared, you believed in my vision
    And now I got an army comin' with me on my mission
    I thank God for all you, every single night
    Cause believe or not, you saved my life
