GOD IF IT’S JUST FOR TODAY

GOD IF IT’S JUST FOR TODAY

I see you walkin’ my way but
our eyes never meet
Stuck tryin’ to find some meaning through
your telephone screen
Ahh-haa
What happened to empathy?
Ahh-hmm
Are all sympathies lost in me?

God
Why am I treated this way?
Dear Lord
Will you hear what I have to say?
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
God-if-it’s-just-for-today

Like, nobody can see me and do I even exist?
My Mama never said there’d be days like this
Ahh-haa
Living with mental illness
Ahh-hmm
They say I’m just too sensitive

God
Why am I treated this way?
Dear Lord
Will you hear what I have to say?
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
God-if-it’s-just-for-today

So I sit in the shadows
just off to the side
I’ll trade you my tomorrows
for some of your time
Ahh-haa
These long and lonely nights
Ahh-hmm
Someone save me from my mind

God
Why am I treated this way?
Dear Lord
Will you hear what I have to say?
Ahh-haa
Now I’m on my knees to pray
Ahh-hmm
Show me some mercy and grace

Ahh-haa

Now I’m on my knees to pray

Ahh-hmm
