Pressure On Me

Why do I feel so heavy
Why do I feel so weak
It’s because of the weight
I carry with me

The weight life brings
The betrayal that stings
But I stand tall
Like there is nothing wrong at all

It makes me lose my mind
Why can’t people just be kind
The burdens feel so heavy
It breaks my spine

I have to keep walking
I have to keep smiling
I can’t let them know
The deep pain in me that grows

I need help severely
I can’t go on like this, it’s killing me
I wait urgently
For someone to save me

They that wait on the Lord
He shall renew their strength
But I’ve been waiting so long
And I still feel weak

I must remain in prayer
Give me rest Lord God my creator
I can’t do this alone
If I do, it will crush my soul

I will follow you no matter what
Regardless of the pain
I will listen to what you’re saying
You will take me home some day

For you oh God I will wait
Earnestly and patiently
Because I know that you will
Remove this pressure from me
