It's been years in the making
In my skin I am shaking from the cold
I am tired from the taking
And my heart it won't stop breaking and I know...
Moving forward can't be this hard
I'm still trying to find out
Who I am on my own
I had you right beside me
But now you're gone and I know
That when the room clears I'm still here
Who am I when I'm alone?
They say time is a healer
But it's more like a concealer for a scar
'Cause it never really leaves us
But it can always find us where we are
Who thought it could ever be so hard?
There's so much I should have said when time was wearing thin
You're not here but someday I know I'll see you again

Behind the Song:
“Sometimes we have people in our lives to depend on, and other times, it seems we have to go through it alone. We wrote this song from the perspective of someone who has lost a person very dear to them. It is in that most vulnerable of times that we are forced to find out who we really are on our own. We are forced to put one foot in front of the other and move forward with total dependence on God, even when we don’t know exactly where we are going.” - Joshua Pearson (Nevertheless
