A realization that life is bad because I have drifted away and now I want to run home
It’s such a rainy, dreary day
The clouds and my world, both are grey
It has taken so long to finally feel
The hurt in this chest is very real

For so long I flashed a smile
Now I'll stop and rest awhile
The cover I had shown the world
Can no longer help this broken girl

Perhaps when I release and fly
That empty, lonely part will die
For so long it's been my twin
Holding back the me within

I want so much to laugh and love
To think nice thoughts, to hold my tongue
To be a kinder, gentler friend
To leave this life of wicked sin

There's only one way out I see
To give it up and be set free
To start each day fresh, anew
Begin each day in a chat with you

You are the healer, lover of my soul
I fall into your warmth and out of the cold
Living your life does not mean perfection
Only a chance to find redemption

So hear my cry and let me in
In forgiveness let me swim
Protect me when the going gets tough
And the mountain I climb seems so rough

Help me Lord that’s all I ask
To start, endure, and finish your task
Help me Lord for I am weak
Your love and forgiveness is all that  I seek
