    lord, i cannot take it, i need your help
    because i have failed with everyone else
    my tears stain my pillow and sleep doesn't stay longer than 2 hours
    I just want to live my life like i used to, but i cant even walk without being devoured-
    by my past mistakes and my present regrets
    I need your guidance and strength
    I can only be strong for so long, I can't keep carrying everyone's dreams on my shoulders
    I keep believing its going to get better, but it gets worse as I get older
    I know you have blessed me with many talents, but lord, I get so lonely...
    So lonely...
    People come in and out my life, never bother to stay
    I watch the clock, I hear the air pass, and I watch the seasons change
    Nobody understands, nobody listens, nobody tries to look through my eyes
    I try to understand, I try to listen, I try to look through their eyes but I just get hypnotized
    I am trying to be a better person, Im trying to make things right
    But Lord, its hard, its sooo hard, living this type of life
    I dont ask for much, I dont desire money or the finer things
    I just want a friend who understands and wants me for me and not my talents
    I just need you... I just need unconditional love....
    Is that too much to ask for?
    I am tired of trying to mend my broken heart
    I am tired of trying to control my twisted emotions
    I just need you...
    Why dont you come and rescue me...?
    Please, just one day...
    I just want to feel free, I want to feel loved
    I know I dont deserve it, but I need you...
    I love you....
    Amen.
