    on the road of progression
    i've committed many a transgression
    painfully learned many a hard lesson
    and prayed many a prayer of confession

    Lord i've shed so many tears
    and waisted far too many years
    yeah i overcame a couple of fears
    but still the path just isn't clear

    most of my life i've been wondering aimlessly
    tryin' to figure out who i'm supposed to be
    wondering if this world will ever see
    all the potential that lies inside of me

    day after day i seek your will
    and i hear you whisper peace....be still
    but i'm hurt and confused, helpless and lost
    life comes with a price and my soul pays the cost

    everyday i'm living in hell
    while painfully yearning to be held
    and i don't know if you can tell
    but this is how i cry for help

    but rarely do i find relief
    cause my grip on this world is hard to release
    and when i try to strengthen my beliefs
    my stay in church is far too brief

    i start to look for love, but in the wrong place
    tears begin to drown my face
    now my soul can't find the space
    to open up to your warm embrace

    a heart turned cold is hard to control
    and to be honest Lord i just don't know
    if i could ever let all this pain go
    or withstand another blow

    on the outside i'm living life
    but inside i constantly cry
    feeling as though i'm about to die
    wondering why should i even try

    but i must try and I must hold on
    though the battles are hard and long
    help me Father to be strong
    and to continue to carry on

    Amen

    life can be a living hell
    but you can neva bail
    when fresh winds turn stale
    sale ya worries cheap
    and take a leap
    towards da Lord
    he always gives you
    a longer extension cord

    tight scribe
    keep it flow'n
    peace
