    LOOK AT YOU FROM MY WINDOW AND WONDER WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND

    WORKING SO HARD, PRAYING SO HARD WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS PEACE THAT YOU CAN'T FIND

    FAKING A SMILE MEAN WHILE A TEAR RUNNING DOWN YOUR FACE

    WE SIT AND TALK ABOUT HOW YOUR GONNA FINISH THIS RACE

    SO I SIT AND LISTEN WIH MY EARS AND HEART

    YOU BEAR YOUR SOUL AND THIS IS WHERE YOU START:

    I LOST HIM AND I HATE THIS PAIN

    SO I TRY TO FIND SOMEONE ELSE TO PROTECT ME FROM THE RAIN

    STRENGTH INSIDE ME BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIGHT

    START WITH GOOD INTENTIONS BUT STILL DOESN'T END UP RIGHT

    I PRAY AND PRAY BUT CAN THE LORD HANDLE THIS WORLD ON MY SOULDERS

    EACH THING WOUNDS ME, HURTS ME, MAKES ME COLDER

    MAKING MY MISTAKE MAN I HAD THIS COMING

    TRY TO STAND AND FIGHT BUT SO MUCH EASIER RUNNING

    GOT SO MANY DEMONS INSIDE SCARED TO LET THEM OUT

    THINKING YOU REALLY DON'T KNOW WHO I AM AND WHAT I'M ABOUT

    BUT THAT'S MY FAULT CAUSE I KEEP YOU FAR AWAY

    NOT USED TO PEOPLE CALLING ME JUST TO SAY HEY

    I THANK THE LORD EVERYDAY MAKING ME A WORK IN PROGRESS

    I KNOW NOW WHAT I NEED PROMISE I WON'T SETTLE FOR LESS

    To figure out what one really needs in life, is truly a blessing, and usually does not come easy. I know what you're saying and I like the way you chose to say it.
