In the shoes of a broken man

I can count my friends on one hand 
Yet my enemies are far and wide
Is it because I don’t put any trust in man 
Or is it just my simple pride
No one knows what really bothers me 
Yet they tell me they feel my pain
If they only knew how hard it must be 
On the brink of going insane
When day after day It seems to get 
Just a little bit harder to cope
But what’s left when life’s full of regrets
And you’re at the end of your rope
God said that we would have problems
And we must bring them to him in prayer
But while we sit around wait for him to solve them
Do you think that anyone else even  cares
I found that the more I try to carry on 
The more people try to bring me down 
And even though I am very strong 
I cry when no-one else is around
It is as if I’ve given my all
Well   At least   all that I can stand
And my back is still   against the wall 
And I’m standing in   the shoes of a broken man
