A PrayerA Prayer
Now that I lay me down to sleep
The hopes and fears of my soul run free
My heart's no longer mine to keep
O Lord I need you to save me.
The Ultimate Question:
I may run and fly or jump and fall,
But when I die will it matter at all?
When I look in the mirror
What image reflected in light comes back to my eyes?
Would it make you proud?
To sever my indulgent ties
With all the earthly hungers and lies
That might just fill me up for a while
But leave me worse for wear
I am a fool and a child.
But this knowledge doesn't stop my cowering under the covers in an effort to forget.
If I should die before I wake,
Would I find home with you today?
Regret the times my love was fake?
As I hold myself in the bed I lay.
It's a drowning world out there, God.
So far away from you,
Your touch is so new.
Do I even "have a prayer"?
I do. And it's for you.
I'm done living like this
I'm done feeling this pain
To the point where I don't know what's real
Never Let You GoNever let you go, I'll always be there for you.
To always catch you when you fall, Keep you safe.
To always hold you, keep you warm.
You make me feel needed and alive.
If I had the chance, I'd marry you in a heartbeat.
I love you with all of my heart, I know you do as well.
You are one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
As long as I'm alive, I will never let you go, I will be there for you.
I will forever be yours, because there has never been anyone like you before.
That's what friends do.I knew it was coming, and I told you I was happy for you
Because that's what friends do, that's what best friends do
And it's not because I don't like her, because I really do
It's just I don't think she's good, she's not right for you
I know I can't say what you need, or what you want
But knowing you so well for so long I feel like I do know- I know everything about you
I know what you're afraid of, and what you really want out of life
I know what makes you mad, and I know that your eyes look bigger when you're sad
I know you've had feelings for her for as long as I've known you
And I know that you think you won't find anyone better- that she's perfect in every single way
But I also know that someone who doesn't appreciate how kind you are isn't as perfect as you think
And I know that when she's never sure of her feelings for you then she can't be the one
Because there's the girl that you tell all of these things too who would never turn you down
And this girl waits for you to smile a
Already FallenAlready I've fallen,
Too deeply again.
And even though I know
I'll end up broken
When our parting commences,
Right now, all I need
Is to feel the strength of your arms
Putting comfort in my life
For now, while we're here
