Oh! sometimes, how it feels so heavy inside
When words can scarcely express
When laying back on a recliner would barely do
When looking out the window Won't do
When singing a loved song won't do
When taking a walk won't do
when listening to music won't do

Oh! Sometimes, when it seems so grey out there
How reading a book can't help
When people can't come to rescue
When everything seems all screwed up
When life's story seems all jumbled up
Then will I run to you
To take refuge and anchor in your peaceful arms
Though I know those arms are always open
Still sometimes, it feels they are interlocked from me

Oh! sometimes, how it gets so hot around here
When the heat and pressure of life comes too strong
When it feels like I'm all scotched and hung
Steaming hot with sweat and tear drop dripping long
As though everything put together has gone wrong
on my ground I'll remain and proclaim "to you I belong"
Then will I run to your shadow for shade

Oh! those times, I feel so hungry and thirsty for you
But never get sufficient filling as desired
Rather left with deeper want and yearning for you
I could only hold-still and keep on trusting you
Inspite all these, I know you are very near
Though I can't see you with my eyes
I hear your fine voice saying to me... I'm with you
I hide only for you to get more desperate...
In all I've learnt not to trail you using my senses
But through faith follow you closely by heart...
