Can you see, deep inside, to the pain that I hide, all the hurt that I've felt and the nights that I've cried?

Cuz it's all just too real. Don't know how I can deal, so I leave it alone, let it rest, stay concealed.

In my soul, there's a hole, that is taking it's toll. A darkness inside that no hug can console.

A look out at the world but am blinded by tears. It's fulfilling my nightmares, producing my fears.

Lord please help me, I'm through. Nothing else I can do, will save me from hell, bring me closer to You.

Though once I was lost, I still am not found. My soul may be free, but my mind is still bound.

I fight through the day with a laugh and a smile, I try to look happy, yet I'm deep in denial.

So when will I break free, tell the pain "Let me be", sing the blessed songs of Zion, like "Love Lifted Me"?

Cuz I'm floating through time, it's destroying my mind. If praying's illegal, I pay for my crime.

But I can't let it out, it's just raging within, still I try to warn others, of the danger of sin.

So they won't be like me, with a hope and a prayer, when a kind word is needed, there's nobody there.

And now you all see, how it is to be me, never knowing true love, as it was meant to be.

But I won't stand here quiet, til the end I must fight. A new day has arrived, to the old me "Goodnight"....
