[Verse:]
I hurt so many nights. Cried so many hours. Trying to make it right. Just didn't have the power. You ignored all of my tears. In hopes they'd disappear. I tried to let it show.

But I guess... you just don't wanna know

I came to you in love. I came to you in earnest. Could you possibly explain? Why the flames, why the furnace? Just needing to get it clear. I was hoping you would hear. I tried to let it go.

But I guess... you just don't wanna know.

Now it's true that God is always there, He said He'd never leave. But at times the human touch is what I need. And if I had a dime for every time I tried to call your name. Some tell me, I'd be wealthy.

But I learned that I could cope. I discovered I could make it. In nights so long and cold. So cold, you don't know how cold. I learned that I could take it. Now I wouldn't change a thing. Not for the knowledge, not for the knowledge that I've gained.

I learned that I could grow. I really did, I tried to let it show. I did. I tried to let it go.

But I guess... you just don't wanna know

    I came to you when i needed you most but you disregarded me and my problems. I couldn't understand why you looked down on me negatively. Thanks to god, i'm stronger and made it through the struggle and am over it now!

    This song is a testimony of how we really have to listen, watch and pray. You just don't really know how many branches people are holding onto before it breaks.

    Well of course, its anointed whereby transferable therefore, i would like to share as it relates to my experience. By the grace of god i endured, survive but ultimately overcame the harsh reality of being sexually abused. However, my journey in which was misery includes the silent cry in the night thus couldn't be heard. But i learned to cope and wouldn't change a thing. Currently i minister in this arena whereby promoting healing to those whose life parallels my experience. It was such a blessing to have heard this sang by pastor marvin winans as it touched the very core of me. I became emotional yet still holds it dear to my heart.
