Comfort….

 

A great song about a foster child. ¬†Found this one a while back….

When everyone has gone to sleep and you are wide awake
there’s no one left to tell your troubles to.
Just an hour ago, you listened to their voices
lilting like a river over underground
and the light from downstairs came up soft like daybreak
dimly as the heartache of a lonely child.If you can’t remember a better time
you can have mine, little one.
In days to come when your heart feels undone
may you always find an open hand
and take comfort wherever you can.

And oh, it’s a strange place.
And oh, everyone with a different face
but just like you thought when you stopped here to linger
we’re only as separate as your little fingers.

So cry, why not? we all do
then turn to one you love
and smile a smile that lights up all the room.
Follow your dreams in through every out-door
it seems that’s what we’re here for.

And when you can’t remember a better time
you can have mine, little one.
In days to come when your heart feels undone
may you always find an open hand
and take comfort, there is comfort.
Take comfort wherever you can, you can, you can.

Breathe You In by Thousand Foot Krutch

Taking hold, breaking in
The pressures on, need to circulate
Mesmerized and taken in
Moving slow, so it resonates

It’s time to rest, not to sleep away
My thoughts alone, try to complicate
I’ll do my best, to seek You out
And be myself and not impersonate

I tried so hard to not walk away
And when things don’t go my way
I’ll still carry on and on, just the same

I’ve always been strong, but can’t make this happen
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe You in
Fear of becoming so tired of running
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe You in
I want to breathe You in

I’m going in, so cover me
Your compass will help me turn the page
The laughing stock, I’ll never be
Because I won’t let them take me

I tried so hard to not walk away
And when things don’t go my way
I’ll still carry on and on, just the same

I’ve always been strong, but can’t make this happen
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe You in
Fear of becoming so tired of running
‘Cause I need to breathe

Took awhile to see
All the love that’s around me
Through the highs and lows
There’s a truth that I know and it’s You

I, I’ve always been strong, but can’t make this happen
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe You in
The fear of becoming so tired of running
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe You in

I want to breathe You in, I want to breathe You in
I want to breathe You in, I want to, I want to
I want to breathe You in, I want to breathe You in
I want to breathe, I want to, I want to, I want to breathe
I want to breathe, I want to breathe, I want to breathe
