Before He Healed Me: the words of a sinner

I will cry in the darkness
Cry in the darkness
Hide my tears from the searing morning light
Swallow down my pain and sorrow
And pretend that I'm alright

Let out the tension that overcomes me
Reveal the nightmares and the fright
I'm truly honest in the darkness
When I'm crying in the night

I am so good at pretending
That I am happy in the light
But inside me I am trembling
And crying in the night

There is so much that I am lacking
I fall far shorter than the mark
But I don't feel that you can judge me
When I'm hiding in the dark

My life is like a stage
Full of pretense and I'm not free
To drop the costumes, remove the make up
To reveal the real me

Instead I cry in the darkness
Hide my shame from the searing morning light
I swallow down my pain and sorrow
And pretend that I'm alright

Don't ask me how I'm feeling
You might be surprised to see
That underneath this tough exterior
Lies a very inferior me

Take your kindness and compassion
Take your shallow sympathy
You cannot know the pain I feel
You have no lasting remedy

Turn out the light as you shut the door
Forget my past and let me be
I will live forever more
Drowning in my misery

So leave me crying in the darkness
Hiding my tears from the searing morning light
I can bear my pain and sorrow
Just pretend that I'm alright
