So many nights I just sit down and cry.
I ask the Lord to take me to the sky.
I know it sounds as though I am running from the fears I have inside.
Yet by all the rules of life I do abide.
Although it is never easy, it is not all that rough.
Inside I just feel that I can no longer be that tough.
To fight the pain and hide the hurt is nothing more I can stand.
Sometimes I just wish He'd take me to another land.
A land where there is nothing but happiness and joy.
A place where there is that old fairy tale of girl meets boy.
Life ever after is something I see.
Sometimes I wish it would happen to me.
Don't let me scare you by speaking this way.
I know if I had the chance, I would most likely stay.
Often it feels that there is nowhere to turn.
I guess we just all have to live and have to learn.
I just want you to know that I love you so.
There may just come a time that I really have to go.
Just remember the laughter and the dreams that we shared.
No matter what happens, I will remember you cared.
I must face each new day as if it were my last.
I have to just put this life as I know it all in the past.
Please don't hate me for speaking like this.
You will feel all the love in our last kiss.
Don't be afraid to just let me go.
We will meet again...all in time.
