"When" - a song written January 2020

Five years lost 

Abused so badly used  and  now he counts the cost 

Still he stays 

if she could only drop the bottle - things might change    

Day by day further he falls 

The pain goes o - on   It cuts so deep       

the dark within his heart grows worse 

He's not that str - ong  - in fact, he's weak   

Light eludes his sight the more she hurts 

When's enough of such bro ken  (pretend)  -   when? 

 

Three  years young 

Cancer came and drained her life - lullabies un-sung    

Mama's cold 

Asking why a God who's good would mercy withhold  

Day by further she falls 

The pain goes o - on   It cuts so deep       

the dark within her heart grows worse 

She's not that str -- ong   she feels so weak 

drying to the cries the more it hurts 

Will this aching ever end  - when?    

 

At for-ty eight 

I'm running to escape the chains of pain-filled yesterdays 

but seasons End  - one day soon He'll heal  the wounds

and make us whole again 

Love will hold us still until   then -   when it's finally  -  

when
