I am dim... My smile grows weary and grim...

The light in my eyes are dim...
The smile on my lips is grim.
 
My heart is broke...
The lump in my throat leaves me to choke.
 
I am a lighter...
That cannot burn any brighter.
 
I long to cry...
But I can't even try.
 
I want to trust...
But I can't bear for my heart to bust.
 
I am hurt...
I feel like dirt.
 
I am a lighter...
That cannot burn any brighter.
 
I want to die...
I am living a lie.
 
Oh God, I need You...
Tell me You love me and that You are true.
 
Hold me close to Your side...
Make me Your beautiful bride.
 
Teach me to trust and cry...
Make the tears come so I don't have to try.
 
I am a lighter...
Beginning to burn a little brighter.
 
Use worn, broken, me...
So people can see...
 
That broken dim lighters...
With You... burn even brighter.
 
Yes Lord... I am a worn lighter...
Once dark, and dim...
 
Now Brighter!
