    I hate the hard times
    I know I’ll get through but it gets to be
    so painful sometimes
    and the tears I see, oh I cry for me
    and I cry for my life
    wishing at times it weren’t mine
    it gets confusing sometimes
    and some days I see a small light
    with each tear shed I’m stronger and I’ll be here a lil longer
    but it gets hard sometimes
    trying to beat the times
    I just want to break down
    I’m alone sometimes

    Am I supposed to be here?
    I don’t know
    I know how I got here
    I do know
    But since God knows all things
    Did he know
    I was gonna be here
    I don’t know
    Maybe he brought me here
    Just to show
    Don’t be so ungrateful
    For those
    Those who loved me and cared and adored and were there when I broke down naked and I had nobody else when I fell

    What am I supposed to learn?
    I don’t know
    Lord when will you take me home?
    I don’t know
    What are you tryin’ to show me?
    Oh Lord Oh
    I see where mistakes take me
    I do know
    But if you knew I’d be here
    Did you show
    That I could end up being here
    I don’t know
    Did you try to get me to change and to see things your way and to stop all my ways and surrender to your will and pray?

    I just pray for the day
    That I know
    You’ll come and take this all away
    And I’ll go
    Remembering the tears and rain and the nights I called your name cuz nobody else could seem to take away or separate my pain...
