The Last Night

You come to me with your scars on your wrist
You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this
"I just came to say goodbye
I didn't want you to see me cry, I'm fine"
But I know it's a lie

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be
The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be

Your parents say everything is your fault
But they don't know you like I know you
They don't know you at all
"I'm so sick of when they say
'It's just a phase, you'll be o.k. you're fine' "
But I know it's a lie

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be
The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be
The last night away from me

The night is so long when everything's wrong
If you give me your hand
I will help you hold on
Tonight, tonight

This is the last night you'll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I'm everywhere you want me to be
The last night you'll spend alone
I'll wrap you in my arms and I won't let go
I'm everything you need me to be

I won't let you say goodbye
And I'll be your reason why
The last night away from me
Away from me

-Skillet


There's no way I can express how much this song comforts me. I really needed to hear it today. Many times. It's been a really stressful weekend, and I feel like a huge burden has just been lifted from my shoulders. I've been ignoring God for so long because I've been worrying about so many other things, not realizing that he's got me in his arms and will never let go. He's everything I need him to be and so much more. Will I ever learn this?

"Will I ever learn this?" Sounds like you just did.

This morning in church, we sang one of the oldest and most dear to my heart songs....Once again, I remembered, and and once again I wept........

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

(no one has any idea of how lost and blind I was.)

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.
