lyrics

Father, I'm struggling with everything
I feel so empty
I just want it all to be over
I'm crawling on hands and knees
I'm only a few yards away from death

I wish I was a mockingbird
So I could always remember your words
I thought you said "Come back"
But I can't remember
There's no way that you still love me

But every night is the same
Always that same dream
It's just you and I
And I'm falling back in love
And I apologize for running away so many times
But God you stretch your hand
Then the sky turns to black
And my hand is ensnared by the thorns
My God, have you truly forsaken me?
Or have I simply entered a room
Where the doors are locked tightly
I try to take a look through the keyhole
But all that I see is my reflection
Oh what a sad, sad story
I feel like this white which you adorned me
Is fading slowly to black

But can I be any better than I label myself?
Can I be any better than I label myself?

(He said)

When I call your name (2x)
I'm setting a place for you at my table
You can never outrun my love
Oh my son
