Still I saw light

COULD YOU TAKE CARE OF A BROKEN SOUL

tumblr_oaf3evjiag1vv69vco1_1280

If I come to you now
With all this hurt I carry
All these regrets that haunt
All emotions that are harsh
Every pain I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I found you now
With all this pain I carry
All these thoughts that follow
All feelings that are crude
Every fear I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I rang you now
With all this burden I hold
All these nightmares that claw
All rumblings that are rough
Every heartbreak I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I called you now
With all this weight I hold
All these memories that burn
All whispers that are raw
Every grief I have held onto
Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

If I come to you now
If I found you now
If I rang you now
If I called you now

With all this hurt I carry
With all this pain I carry
With all this burden I hold
With all this weight I hold

All these regrets that haunt
All these thoughts that follow
All these nightmares that claw
All these memories that burn

All emotions that are harsh
All feelings that are crude
All rumblings that are rough
All whispers that are raw

Every pain I have held onto
Every fear I have held onto
Every heartbreak I have held onto
Every grief I have held onto

Could you
Take care
Of a broken soul

I COME TO YOU WITH A BROKEN FAITH

89f579a6b7d22042d1c20b1e89836b3a

I have fallen by the wayside
Lost amidst thoughts of hurt
My pain I have stuffed inside
I have hated that I suffered loss
I never said goodbye
I never said hello
I blamed
I hated
I was angry
Broken with no joy
I thought I knew how to heal
By myself
I wanted to drown
I wanted it to end
Because the loneliness
The sadness
The questions
The not understanding
How a good God would take you away
My soul never wanted to be alive
My mind could not comprehend it all
It seemed unfair
It felt unwarranted
I had you for such a short time
Forever was all I wanted
Then you were gone
And I had nothing
Now
I come to you with a broken faith
I seek not understanding how
I need my heart to heal
I cannot heal my own heart
I cannot touch away the pain
I cannot erase the memories
My faith is broken
Not even cracked
Just broken
I have no strength to mend it
I can only come to you
With this broken faith

JESS GLYNNE – TAKE ME HOME

Wrapped up, so consumed by all this hurt
If you ask me, don’t know where to start
Anger, love, confusion
Roads that go nowhere
I know that somewhere better
‘Cause you always take me there

Came to you with a broken faith
Gave me more than a hand to hold
Caught before I hit the ground
Tell me I’m safe, you’ve got me now

Would you take the wheel
If I lose control?
If I’m lying here
Will you take me home?

Could you take care of a broken soul?
Will you hold me now?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?

Hold the gun to my head, count 1, 2, 3
If it helps me walk away then it’s what I need
Every minute gets easier
The more you talk to me
You rationalize my darkest thoughts
Yeah, you set them free

Came to you with a broken faith
Gave me more than a hand to hold
Caught before I hit the ground
Tell me I’m safe, you’ve got me now

Would you take the wheel
If I lose control?
If I’m lying here
Will you take me home?

Could you take care of a broken soul?
Oh, will you hold me now?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?

You say space will make it better
And time will make it heal
I won’t be lost forever
And soon I wouldn’t feel
Like I’m haunted, oh, falling

Would you take the wheel
If I lose control?
If I’m lying here
Will you take me home?

Could you take care of a broken soul?
Oh, will you hold me now?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home, home?
Oh, will you take me home?
Oh, will you take me home?

FROZEN

watermark_11dec08_014

Running from myself
Yet I am frozen in this moment
Unmoving
Unfeeling
Unnerving
Feelings of where are you
Missing you
Where else can I go
I am chasing you
Unfolding
Unfailing
Unearthing
Moments of where you are
Unfrozen
Is what I want to be

GRIEF WHISPERING

Monument Calcagno-001

It’s night time
It’s evening time
It’s midnight time
It’s evening time
I can hear
Grief whispering
Cloaked in wintry nights
