Far away
My thoughts are leading me far away
Far away from the loving arms
Of the people who've been there for me in life

Praying to whomever's listening
Are you there, God? It's me again.
Tell me now, will it be worth it in the end?

Why must it be this way?
I just wanna know why
Things have to be this way

My heart
Stuttered until it shut down
On the floor in some strange town
Begging to God, let me keep my life

Praying to God in the candlelight
Pray to thank him for my life
And to beg not to start again

Now today
I've forsaken my past vice
I've been plucked from death twice
I don't want to die anymore.
