Starting Over


I just want to be alive again

I lived this way so long

Dear God I need your strength

to help me to atone

For all the years I wasted

being empty inside

Built up layers of scarring

keeping me from the life I set aside

I bow down before thee

humble in my heart

Grateful that you love me

to help me start

A new life before me

one filled with hope and love

Break the shell of darkness

so I can fly above

Your hand is for the taking

I grab it strong and free

So you can pull me up, My Lord

get me to my knees

I will do the rest

on my very own

Knowing you are with me

gives me strength to carry on
