God, I don't know if I can
take this anymore.

I'm trying, God, I really am,
it is you that I live for.

But I'm drowning in a sea of faces,
and names I'll never know.

I hate it here!
How can I call this place my home?

The kids at school,
they don't understand me.
They can't even see you, God.

But around them, I feel so inferior.
Am I the one who is truly odd?

God, just get me through today,
that's all I ask for now.

But in the long run,
I ask for peace.
Can you grant me peace somehow?

And God, please help them see you,
the same way that I do.

Help them know that in this changing world,
your love is always true.

This things that I pray for them,
I also pray for me.

God, please help me steady myself,
with roots deep like a tree.

Wrap me in your love again,
and let my soul dance with you.

Only you can fix me now,
and make my broken heart brand new.
