Give Me Strength (Demo)

There's never any answers
There's never any clues
I can't pick out the pieces
That will help me to get through

I see it all together
Listed line by line
Should it all be simple?
Will I find it all in time?

Lord, give me strength
For I have none
I'm but a helpless little child

I've loved so many people
Have any loved me back?
Does it even matter when
I can't keep myself on track?

The fire is getting hotter
Outside it's freezing cold
Where are these promised adventures?
I wanna go before I'm too old

Lord, give me strength
For I have none
I'm but a helpless little child

Hope has brought me sadness
Hope has brought me joy
But hope can't bring reality
If I'm left without a choice

A million flowers growing
Which pedal do I pick?
Can I grab another
Or is this all a trick?

Lord, give me strength
For I have none
I'm but a helpless little child

Should I be spending all my days
Finding meaning on this earth
Should I expect something more
Or is this all I'm worth?

Once hope is gone and love shall fade
What will I have to show?
I'll have to give up my whole self
Before it's time to go

Lord, give me strength
For I have none
I'm but a helpless little child
