First Letter to the Lost

Torchured sleep it leaves me
Wandering in the night
Moving through the shadows
Hidden from plain sight

I try to start my days a new
The unrest lies within
I live with being haunted
From everywhere I've been

Memories of lost love
Things that might have been
Had I chose a life of righteousness
Instead of a life of sin

The battles they seem endless
Though the war's already won
My life it seems so helpless
I feel I can't go on

Looking up to heaven
Down on my knees I pray
I ask the Lord for mercy
Why must I go on this way

A better place is waiting
Lord why must I stay
Show Your will to me
I will live for You today
