In the still of the night my loneliness
is all that I can feel.
It wraps around and swallows me up
until nothing else is real.
Sinking deeper and deeper down
the darkness is all I see.
I’m screaming out, but no one hears.
It’s taking all of me.
Desperately trying, longing to be
something I am not.
Knowing for sure I’ll never obtain
the thing that I have sought.
Failure and doubt my constant companions,
into the darkness I roam.
Praying for something to hold on to,
wanting to find my way home.
The winding path keeps taking me down
no matter how hard I try.
I cannot find my way back now.
I sink to my knees and cry.
Suddenly the light is visible,
It’s shining down on me.
Winding its way inside of my soul
I feel it consuming me.
Knowing I’ve found what I’ve searched for,
Feeling the peace inside.
I surrender to your love.
I no longer need to hide.
