When reality finally hits you it hurts When the truth comes into focus it’s brutally painful. Hope isn't always enough It’s not always a happy ending. What happens when faith is not enough?
I get hot flashes My depression splashes My soul is cold like stone, the fear of being alone.
So now I lay me down to sleep I pray you lord my soul to keep Don’t let me die before I wake I pray you lord my soul do not take.
I barely have a past And may have no future Empty pages of a book A story left unwritten A life left unlived A hope left in the dust. Please don't take me yet Your mercy you won't regret I am down on my knees Begging you please Don’t take me away.
At night I dream a misty graveyard A tombstone the name I cannot see A flashlight in the darkness A figure so lifeless I cannot breathe. Then I awake not as fearless as I may seem.
If this is my future And if it comes to pass And this breath be my last Then this thought to you I cast.
What if faith is not enough? Then life would be rather tough With nothing to believe in And nothing to justify Nothing to keep you sane Nothing to grasp when you fall You will have nothing, nothing at all.
Sometimes that is how I am Falling in the darkness With nothing to take hold This feeling leaves me cold hearted, soulless, empty. All I feel is the pain of being unreal No one knows how this life feels, when you are so lifeless.
So now I lay me down to cry I pray you lord you can't let me die. Now I lay me down to sleep Close my eyes without a peep Never to be opened again.
Your body goes warm then cold like rain Slowly your body numbs, to your fingers and your thumbs. As your body stops working, you feel the cold mist of death And peacefully while you’re sleeping you take your final breath.
