Up all night & I don’t know why
Wondering if I should laugh or cry
Surrounded by a million people
I still feel so alone
What am I waiting for?

Does anyone else ever feel this way?
I got no reason to leave & no reason to stay.
Up all night with a mind that’s reelin’
Does anybody else know what I’m feelin’
Do I even know myself?
Is there anybody else?

What would I do if I didn’t stay awake?
Is there really any such thing as safe?
The dreams that come with sleep aren’t always my own
I begin to think there is no such place as home.
Is it something we’ve invented cause we like the way it sounds?
Are you always this honest when there’s nobody around?

Up all night and I don’t know why
Wondering if I should laugh or cry
Surrounded by a million people I feel so alone
Wonder if there really is a place I can call home.




Sometimes you find the answers where you least expect.
Tired of feeling like your life is one big wreck
You fall down on your knees & you say, “Jesus, please
Will you make your home inside of me?
I’ve been waiting for my whole life, &
You’re just what I need.”

I know where I belong now & it’s not on these city streets.
So Jesus I am asking you to take all of me.
I don’t have to be alone & I never will be again.
Jesus I’ll open my heart & you can move right in.

Shannon, this is beautiful. Is it part of the weekly challenge? Did you write it in response to your prompt on Christain persecution? I'd like to put it in context.

Called to, "Teach the word of the Lord; sing it to the nations loud and clear."

Confession: This is one of my earlier works, but your challenge encouraged me to post!
