Song about my pain


Recommended Posts

My pastor played this song for me last night, and it seemed like something I might have wrote. Although I'm not quite to the point yet where I see any possible beauty from my pain, the rest of it speaks to me.

I've uploaded it to the web and included a link if you want to listen to it. Otherwise I've also posted the lyrics.


The lights go out all around me

One last candle to keep out the night

And then the darkness surrounds me

I know I'm alive

But I feel like I've died

And all that's left is to accept that it's over

My dreams ran like sand through the fists that I made

I try to keep warm but I just grow colder

I feel like I'm slipping away

(Chorus) After all this has passed

I still will remain

After I've cried my last

There'll be beauty from pain

Though it won't be today

Someday I'll hope again

And there'll be beauty from pain

You will bring beauty from my pain

My whole world is the pain inside me

The best I can do is just get through the day

When life before is only a memory

I wonder why God let me walk through this place

And though I can't understand why this happened

I know that I will when I look back someday

And see how you've brought beauty from ashes

And made me as gold purified through these flames


Here I am at the end of me (at the end of me)

Trying to hold to what I can't see

I forgot how to hope

This night's been so long

I cling to your promise there will be a dawn

This is beautiful. Someday you will see the miraculous hand of God, and someday you will understand. You know, I was thinking about your other post...the one where you said you woke thinking you heard someone say you are beautiful. Don't you think it was Keith? I do. I think he sent you that. Sent that to you not for pain, but for passion. He sent that to let you know he is OK, and that you WILL be ok. It gives me shivers to think about, but I believe it. May God bless you today and always Carleen. I sent you a few things in the mail yesterday, through LCSC, so it will be a while. Stay strong!

This is a beautiful song. And as you said, quite fitting. Perhaps Keith sent this one down for you?? I find it wonderful that you have found a way to express/share your feelings with music...Keith's passion. Something the two of you shared for many years.

Although I am not with you every day, I am thinking of you constantly. You are in my heart....both during the day, and at night. You are not alone...please believe me when I say that.

Love ya,
