Tortured Sleep

#1
Tortured sleep it leaves me

Wondering 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 this 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 then must I stay

Show Your will to me
I will live for You today
