Place it on a pedestal
I don't need it anymore.
I'd rather be heartless then love you,
To be part of you and all you represent,
Polar to what I need,
Polar to what I believe.
God, I need you
Shelter me from what they've become
I cannot stand it anymore
Days go by and I find myself faltering.
Father, I need you
They tell me I'm not good enough
And that everything I believe is wrong
I know they are wrong about you, Jesus,
But what about me,
Will I ever be enough?
God, I need you,
Even more than before
Shelter me from what they want me to be
I want to stand strong
Always and forever in your arms
Father I need you
Make my heart pure
Strong enough to make it through
Until then take my heart away
I cannot stand the pain.
