From the album
We Will Overcome
I’ve had enough of all these empty words!
This is not me giving up; this is me letting go.
When hope is gone there’s nowhere left to run.
I’m not running anymore; this is where I stand my ground!
For far too long complacency has been my only friend
And left me with sleepless nights that never seem to end.
My God when did I become so heartless?
This can’t be what I’ve been living for!
I swore this fire would never burn out;
These days I see it lingering.
Where are the hands that I have come to trust?
This means too much to me to let slip through my hands
And even when my strength fails me I will still stand
I will not be pushed aside
Hopelessness and emptiness have no place in me.
This may be the death of me, so be it.
For so long I wish that this cup could be passed from me.
But now I am starting to see this has been what set me free.
And even though I may not understand why I walk down this bitter path, full of my regret.
I can trust that I am never alone.
