Here I stand
Empty hands
Wishing my wrists were bleeding
To stop the pain from the beatings

And, there you stood
Holding me
Waiting for me to notice you

But who are you
You are the truth
I'm screaming these lies
You are the truth
Saving my life

The warmth of your embrace
Melts my frostbitten spirit
You speak the truth and I hear it
The words are I love you
And I have to believe in you

But who are you
You are the truth
I'm screaming these lies
You are the truth
Saving my life

My hands are open
And you are filling them
Hands in the air
In the air, in the air, in the air

And I worship
I worship
I worship
I worship

You are the truth
I'm screaming these lies

    I cut myself to, so i can really relate to this song. I love lacey's story, because it's so poignant and beautiful and real, but my story is kind of flipped. Because i wasn't the one who put myself down in the hole. Actually, my father kind of pushed me down here, but i confuse my father with god a lot and i know that's a problem, but i can't help it. Anyways, my story is that instead of me getting into my hole by myself and god saving me, god's the one that out me there and i'm saving myself.
    And personally, i don't think it matters if god saves me or if i save me. I think the important thing is being saved. Just, never, ever, commit suicide. I've been down that low, trying to commit suicide, and i assure you, it is not a good place.
    So i don't think it matters, just as long as you get saved.
