if you're not tired of me, i really need your help

Not That Far - Slick Shoes

Looking back what can I say?
There’s been things done the wrong way.
I have tried.
Sometimes it’s hard.
All the time I’ve wasted didn’t get me far.
I try to live my life right, but it seems so hard.
Why have I not used your help?
Now I see your sacrifice for me.
Now I know your watching over me.
Now I see the greatness of your love.
Now I know I’ll never be alone.
I hope you’re not ashamed of me.
I haven’t been the best.
I hope I’m not the worst.
Help me live my life for you.
I can’t do it on my own.
I need your help.
If you’re not tired of me, I really need your help.
Now I see your sacrifice for me.
Now I know your watching over me.
Now I see the greatness of your love.
Now I know I’ll never be alone.
I’m tired of wasting all this time.
Help me live my life.
I can’t do it all alone.
Please stay by my side.

What a great album. Looking back I would have to say this is one of my favorite albums with the best lyrics. What a reminder that God loves us so much and even when we are stupid He still wants to help us. Know that God can use others to help you and that we are always here to help you in any way possible. We love you and miss just hanging out. I know I haven't always been open and honest guy but I want you to know that if you ever want to just talk I am only a phone call away. I feel like we haven't been as close, possibly because of what I have done in the past but I would hope we can become close again.

I love ya

i would have to agree that it is a great album. not many albums like this, perhaps Dogwood's Building A Better Me was close. i know i can just talk with you but it's just harder with the distance but i will try. ian said the same thing too. we all seem to just talk about surface things or hot button topics and nothing deep. so we need to all be more open with each other.

love you too.
