When I thought I was down and out,
I hoped for a different route.
I tried to stop the satanic voices in my head,
That were telling me I was better off dead.
I was ready to give up everything that I had,
The thoughts in my head were driving me mad.
I used to pray day and night to God for a child of my own,
Now that I gave her life, I'm gonna take my own.
I used to pray that God sends me the man that I deserved...
And that deserved me,
And He gave me that, so how could this be...
That I now want to end the life that I prayed so hard for?
I almost lost the job that I worked so hard to get,
And to not worry them, I told them I was just sick.
But now I see why I didn't follow through.
I have so much to live for!
With Satan, this child of God, is always at war.
But I had to remember who I am and whose I am,
No longer will I allow Satan to bring me down!
For him to make me want to take
the life that I've prayed for, for so long.
I remember where my strength comes from,
And I'm reminded that the best is yet to come.
