OH LORD
LORD OH LORD PLEASE LET ME GET THROUGH,
THE HARD TIMES YOU PUT ME THROUGH.
DON'T THINK YOU WILL GET ME BY WINNING,
I THINK I'LL START FROM THE BEGINNING.
YOU HAVE TAKEN A LIFE FROM ME,
YOU HAVE TAKEN A HOME FROM ME,
DON'T YOU THINK YOU'LL STOP ME FROM BEING ME.
I LOST A LIFE THE OTHER DAY.
I THOUGHT MY HOPES AND DREAMS HAVE FADED AWAY.
THEN I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR AND THOUGHT,
SHE WILL NOT LIKE ME HURTING THIS LOT.
THEN I WIPED MY TEARS AND SAID,
GO AHEAD,
AND DREAM,
JUST BECAUSE I LOST A LOVE,
DOESN'T MEAN YOUR NOT TAKING CARE OF HER ABOVE.
THE NEXT DAY I WAS MUCH BETTER,
BUT NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP ME UP.
MY STRENGTH WAS HORRIFYING,
I THOUGHT I QUIT BEING ME.
MY THOUGHTS WERE TEARING ME INSIDE,
I NEVER DID WONDER WHY.
HAVEN'T I DONE ENOUGH FOR YOU?
I PRAY EVERY NIGHT,
I NEVER GOT IN A FIGHT,
I EAT ALL MY VEGETABLES AT THE DINNER TABLE,
THAT'S WHY I'M ABLE
TO DO THE THINGS I DO.
I WONDERED TDAY,
WHY YOU WANTED IT THIS WAY.
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I GUESS I NEVER SAID GOODBYE.
I FEEL SO ALONE,
I FEEL SO SCARED,
I FEEL LIKE A PERSON WHO SAID THEIR LAST PRAYERS.
I'D GIVE UP ANYTHING TO BE WITH HER AGAIN.
I WOULD CONSIDER HER TO BE A GRANDMOTHER AND A FRIEND.
SHE LISTENED TO ME,
SHE GUIDED ME TO THE RIGHT LIGHT,
SHE EVEN SAW ME THROUGH A LOT OF RIGHT.
SHE PUTS AWAY ALL THE WRONG,
SHE EVEN TAUGHT ME A LITTLE SONG.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE SONG,
DON'T DO ANY WRONG.
SOMEDAY, SOMELIFE I'M GONNA WIN THIS FIGHT
UNTIL THEN, JUST GUIDE ME IN THE RIGHT LIGHT.
