Different this Time

Verse 1:
Her father left when she was young
And ever since she’s been on the run
Chasing after guy after guy
Longing for the love that she craves
Her innocence she trades
But in the end they always make her cry
She looks in all the wrong places
Search all their faces
Just to see what she finds
And she says “it never fills me
But maybe it will be
Different this time, this time

Verse 2:
He says he just needs an escape
Spending hour after hour with his video games
Because when he turns off the TV the fantasy fades
The anger, the emptiness it all returns
But really all it is, is purpose that he yearns
He looks in all the wrong places
Searches all their faces, just to see what he’ll find
And he says “it never fills me, but maybe it will be
Different this time, this time”

Verse 3:
You might live in a broken home
Or maybe your family has always been whole
But we all get that ache in our hearts
What can satisfy your soul when the world falls apart?

We all come to a place where we
Look into His face, just to see what we find
We say “this world can’t heal me, but
I know I will be with a love that’s divine”
Our Father says, I love you so much,
I’ll give you my touch
Heal the deep wounds in your heart
He says, "I can satisfy your soul, I can make you whole
When the world falls apart"

If this was a song on itunes i would buy it. I loved the idea behind the song and i thought it was very well written. Good job!

I absloutely love this. It's really heart tugging and beautifully worded.  It's good to see another Christian putting good, positive lyrics out there! :)

Wow, you put to words gods amazing love for everyone and in a way that could make it possible for a non-believer to see his amazing love for everyone no matter how lost or how broken. I don't know how it could be much better, though the stories are all general to relate to everyone which makes it perfect.
