Be My GoodnessMature

There comes a time when you realize that attaining perfection is impossible, that trying to iron out your flaws is futile. In my life, I finally owned up to the fact that I cannot be my own goodness...I have to rely on the goodness of Someone Else.

Be My Goodness

Verse One
There is a trail of blood on my skin
That bleeds from my heart to my mind
An infection that affects the things I do
That destroys every part of my life

Chorus
Relieve me, relieve me of this burden
Assure me that I'm hurting
That this isn't just a made-up world
That I'm not overreacting
And remind me, remind me to see
That righteousness can't come of me
 I cannot be my own savior
God, please - be my goodness 

Verse Two
There is a belief that curses my soul
That leaves me lying alone in my pain
There is a song that echoes constantly
With a solemn, hopeless refrain 

Chorus
Relieve me, relieve me of this burden
Assure me that I'm hurting
That this isn't just a made-up world
That I'm not overreacting
And remind me, remind me to see
That righteousness can't come of me
 I cannot be my own savior
God, please - be my goodness 

The End
