03. Cross My Heart

In The Making...
by Nevertheless



 

I can't sleep
I can't eat
If I give them what they want
Will they just let me be
Who I am?
I'm not like them
I'm sick of nodding my head
At the things that I can't stand
This is it
Oh, my friends
I've tried so hard
But I cannot pretend

Cross my heart
Hope to make it out alive
Their helping hands
Look more like suicide
If I don't make it out
Remember that I tried
Cross my heart
I hope to breathe this time

Day by day
Night by night
I sat alone with pen and page
Trying to do what's right
God, I pray
Shed some light
'Cause if I burn
I want to burn out bright

You make all things new
And no one needs it like I do
I need You

Behind the Song:
“Everyone feels pressure in their lives. It can be frustrating and even discouraging to feel trapped and pressed to move in a direction that we don’t believe is right. What we have to remember is that God holds the world in His hands, and He can and will make all things like new if we let Him. This includes our own hearts as well.” - Joshua Pearson (Nevertheless)
