I turn my head
There's nothing there
All I own is my thoughts
For my fears
I close the door
To keep out the bad
I plug my ears
To keep out these fears

And I cry

So hold me close
For I'm so tired
Of holding myself
So very tired
And tired
Tired and tired
Just hold me
(Repeat)

I listen to these voices
Or is it this house
That's giving me chills,
As I lie upon
This little girls bed
Who's at the door?
Who's walking near?
Or has
My imagination spilled?
This little girl
All grown up still fears

Oh and I cry

CHORUS(2x)

Where can I go
Where can I hide
From these evil sufferings?
Oh these images
Painted on my walls
They say there's a place
That I can hide
In the shadow of your wings
Oh Lord, bring me
To this place of refuge

No more tears.

CHORUS(4x)
