TITLE: Sometimes I Hide

This is based off of Psalm 32:7, I tried to write it in such a way that the listener wouldn't know the whole "story" right away. I thought it may have more of an impact this way. Let me know what you think. Also let me know if there is anything that I could change to make these song lyrics better/easier to sing. I didn't have a certain music style in mind when I wrote this but my guess is that it would sound best as a slower song.
Sometimes this life is too much for me.
and itís all I can do just to breathe.
Sometimes the wind blows way too strong
and I feel like Iím barely hanging on.
Sometimes this life drags me down
and itís all I can do just to crawl around.
Sometimes Your plans are so hard to see
and I feel the walls of life caving in on me.

When everything becomes too much
and this road Iím on becomes too rough
I feel the stress rising in me like the tide
So I run from it all and I hide.

Sometimes this road seems too long
and I find that the way I thought was right, is wrong.
Sometimes the pressure of life is more than I can take
and I feel like Iím walking on a tightrope thatís about to break.
Sometimes it takes all my strength just to pray
and I donít know if I can make it through another day.
Sometimes I just stop and fall to my knees
and it feels like no oneís standing up for me.

When everything becomes too much
and this road Iím on becomes too rough
I feel the stress rising in me like the tide
So I run from it all and I hide.

Sometimes the waters are just too high.
And when I look over the ocean I fall apart inside.
Sometimes I think I only need You to hold my hand
but You pull me to my feet and help me stand.
Sometimes in the midst of my trouble I smile
and people wonder why.
But I know itís because when life becomes too much,
in You I hide.

When everything becomes too much
and this road Iím on becomes too rough
I feel the stress rising in me like the tide
So I run from it all and I hide.

Sometimes Iím not sure what to do
and all I can do is run to You.
Sometimes by my fears Iím chased
so I run to You Ďcause Youíre my hiding place.
Sometimes I feel my life begin to crumble
so I hide in You and You preserve me from my trouble.
You help me through every circumstance
and You surround me with songs of deliverance.

When everything becomes too much
and this road Iím on becomes too rough
I feel the stress rising in me like the tide
So I run from it all and I hide.

When I just canít figure out what to do
I give up on myself and I turn to You.
When the mountain of trouble is too high for me to climb
I donít even try, instead I hide.

You are the place I go to hide.
You draw me in and bring me close to Your side.
Sometimes people ask why I smile when I should cry
and I tell them, ďsometimes I hide.Ē
Youíre the reason why I make it through,
I prevail over my troubles because I hide in You.
Jesus, I know the only reason why
is because in You is where I hide.


You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7
