    Valley of tears

    I’m out here on my own
    Just to roam and roam
    Where is god, and why was I born?
    Somebody! Please tell me, why don’t I have a home?

    Never knowing happiness
    Or what a sweet caress is
    Living in this valley
    This valley of tears

    No one to comfort me from these’s heartaches and pains.
    I don’t even have shelter from the spiteful elements, snow and rain.
    No loving arms to hold me tight.
    Nothing over my head, but the stars and moon at night.

    Just a hug or a tender, kiss!
    It’s the love that I really miss
    I want out of this valley!
    I want to stop this misery.

    I’ve been here so long
    This whole story seems wrong
    Living in a place where love don’t flow
    I feel like I’m already in Hell below

    A house can never ever be no home
    If it’s a place where confusion roams?
    I rather be out here struggling on my own
    Than to live in a place where confusion roam
    I hope you never experience the fears.
    Out here in this valley of tears........

    Unfortunately at one time or another, in one way or another, most of us have been in this valley. And you decribed this hellish feeling with such depth.
