Seems like Iím the only one
where Iím coming from
Maybe Iím wrong.
I crawl beneath a moonless sky
Trying to connect the hurt with why
And the tears donít cease to come
So I give it one more shot,
I cast my final lot
God, maybe you can understand
What Iím going through
Have you ever hurt so bad before
You could not feel the floor beneath your feet?
And have you ever cried so long
The tide swept you away like a song that was bittersweet?
Do you understand, do you think you can relate?
Maybe this reminds you of another time or place
I could have sworn, as I lay warm in my bed
I could hear Your heart break for me
And you did not hesitate to take this pain away
You throw your arms around me like a robe
Hold me close to let me know
Iím not alone anymore
And you tell it like it is, like it was yesterday
And I just canít believe my ears as I hear you say
Do you think that Iíd forget the kiss of death that was left on my face?
Do you think I did not hear the people mock
The soldiers sneer on that day?
Do you think that I donít cry
When the very world for which I died
Just tries to wipe my name from history?
Child, it reminds me of Gethsemane
Do you think that Iím immune
To the pain you put me through
When you close your heart and walk away
And disregard the price I paid?
Do you think that I didnít cry all day?
You see youíre not the only one
Who understands where youíre coming from
Iíve been there all along
