Some days you should just stay in bed

Work was okay today. But I'm pretty much a train wreck anyway. Not because of work, but because of my personal life. Today, I am single again. I've never felt so awful about a breakup before. Mainly because I've never been the one to do the breaking up. So the following lyrics are for both of us.

Beauty From Pain

The lights go out all around me
One last candle to keep out the night
And then the darkness surrounds me
I know I'm alive
But I feel like I've died
And all that's left is to accept that it's over
My dreams ran like sand through the fists that I made
I try to keep warm but I just grow colder
I feel like I'm slipping away
After all this has passed
I still will remain
After I've cried my last
There'll be beauty from pain
Though it won't be today
Someday I'll hope again
And there'll be beauty from pain
You will bring beauty from my pain
My whole world is the pain inside me
The best I can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I wonder why God let me walk through this place
And though I can't understand why this happened
I know that I will when I look back someday
And see how You've brought beauty from ashes
And made me as gold purified through these flames
Here and I am at the end of me (at the end of me)
Trying to hold to what I can't see
I forgot how to hope
This night's been so long
I cling to your promise there will be a dawn


  1. I'm sorry about your pain.

  2. Thanks so much. I just feel so awful that I hurt someone else, you know? But I know he will get over it in time, so it's going to be okay.
