I don’t know what’s going on
I feel so empty
I feel so alone
There’s pain inside
One that I have always known
It hurts to live
But it burns to die
Sometimes I wish
That I just wasn’t alive
Surrounded by friends
And faces I know
But still inside
I fell all alone
I wish I could cry
But the tears no longer come
Why am I like this
Oh Lord, I just don’t understand
My life is so messed up
Everything feels out of hand
No one seems to know
How I truly feel
I’m so sick of faking it
I just want to be real
Lord won’t you help me
To you, this I pray
Help it not to hurt
Help me get through the day
I need you Lord
Now more than ever
This pain is too much
I feel like I’ll be happy again never
So I pray to you now
A very painful prayer
A prayer filled with pain and sorrow
From a very sad girl
Who most the time wishes not for tomorrow
So Lord won’t you help me
I long for you
And the me
You designed me to be
I know I shouldn’t be this way
And that’s why I call to you
This is why I pray
Lord help me
To live for you
Now and everyday
