God, Can You Hear Me?

I try to talk to you
But it's like you're not there
My words fade away
Into empty air

(Chorus)
Can you hear me?
Can my prayer reach that far?
Do you hear one child's cry
Wherever you are?
I'm just one small voice
In a world of pain
And I'm not sure
So I'll ask again
Can you hear me?

I try to hear your voice
But you seem so far away
I know you're calling me
But I don't know what you're saying
I can't hear you

(Chorus)
I can't hear you
I'm drowning in my sin
I try to reach for you
But I'm falling down again
One still, small voice
In a world of pain
If I try hard enough
I know I can
I can hear you

Rolling like thunder
In my once dead heart
I can hear you speaking
We were never apart
I can hear you

Really liked it.
After so long, such a good song which is not about love and romance.

This is really great. Way to keep the faith in God. I actually feel this way sometimes. But I know He's there, and He is listening to me.

Love it! Really good! The part were you said ''In a world of pain'' reminds me of one of my songs I wrote and uploaded into Teen Ink, I had those exact words, only in a different setting, It's really cool to see the same phrases used in different scences. (:
