In a Dark Place Is Where I Lay

Life is hard it's not fair and sometimes I don't care
I'm trying to find my way in this mess we call life
I've been held back so long I don't know how to fly
I'm stranded, defeated and beaten
Sometimes things don't make sense to me
I feel like I'm in this world alone
I'm not well liked but that's a'ight
My dreams on hold and my heart is getting cold
I need to escape but I'm not that bold
No one believes in me they laugh and call me c-r-a-z-y
I feel purposeless, useless and just a wasted space
I wish Jesus would come back so he can bring me home today
This world is not my home, not my friend
I don't even know where to begin
I want to be free
Free to be me
Free to be the woman God destined me to be
But instead I'm a caterpillar in a cocoon trapped
In the dark afraid of the light
One day I'll be a beautiful butterfly and I'll fly away
No more hurt, no more tears, no more pain and no more fears
Take me to a place where I can land,
A place I can sing and dance
A place I can stand
Until then here I am with just my hope
Ideas and heart full of yesterdays
In a dark place is where I lay
