Months have gone,

Months of painful heart-song,

Months of confusion and pain,

Where tears and sorrow have reigned.


Every song strung on my heart

Every movie tuned to my dreams

Every conversation clinging to my mind

Every word affecting my soul.


When will the haunting end?

When will the torture cease?

When does the longing stop;

The missing of I know not what?


All I want to do is give up.

End it all, give in.

Dig a hole and fill it in

With my life, my passion, my soul.


I’ve changed so much

I don’t know this me

I can’t cope stuck in all this emotion

Lord please take me to where I’m free.


Lord please take these burdens off me,

Please end this torture by your promise;

Please hold Your child close Lord,

Let her know Your love, peace and grace are in control.
