I don't normally write songs like this, but whatever.

And yet another song

sometimes you wonder how far the pain can go
sometimes you wonder how the world can be so cruel
sometimes you wonder if it’s worth living at all
your heart grows so tired but don’t lose hope
i'll be your strength; you’ll never be alone

i know this world beats you into powder
i know you wander lost in the shadows
i know the dark closes in around you
but i am the light and i've found you

in your darkest night i see you
through fire or flood i'll be with you
i’ll bear you up on eagle’s wings
trust me in the storm; the wind and waves still know my name
lean on me, tired heart, i am with you

sometimes you wonder if i’ve forgotten you
sometimes you wonder if i’ve left left you to the wolves
sometimes you wonder if i’d still dare to love you
you toss and you turn but you still can't sleep
but rest in my grace, and don’t be afraid

i know you cry in the dark of the night
i know you think i’ve abandoned your side
i know you’ve been trying to earn my love
but there's nothing you can do still i am with you

in your darkest night i see you
through fire or flood i'll be with you
i’ll bear you up on eagle’s wings
trust me in the storm; the wind and waves still know my name
lean on me, tired heart, i am with you

I will not leave you nor forsake you
I'll always be by your side
another day, tired heart, and this world will pass away
but remember this: no one can take you from me
you’re safe in the palm of my hand
so rest your soul, tired heart, i am with you

in your darkest night i see you
through fire or flood i'll be with you
i’ll bear you up on eagle’s wings
trust me in the storm; the wind and waves still know my name
lean on me, tired heart, i am with you
