I could not find my up from my down
I was spinning round, and round, and round
I felt all was lost
I had terrible thoughts
I wanted it to end then hoping it would begin
I wanted to find my soul
Who was I?
What was I?
Why was I?
A tidal wave of fear
A tsunami of tears
I had to reach deep inside of me
If I was ever going to be
But then I gave up the fight
Because the light of the Lord begin to shine
He knew it was a matter of time
Before I release all control
And let him restore my soul
Now I know
Who am I
What am I
I am God’s
