The Sad Song
Lord, it’s a pain to go on living,
And Lord, I’m to scared to die,
And Lord, who is this creature
Who answers to the name of I
Lord, there’s no joy in just being,
No Lord, it’s all pain and woe,
And Lord, I’m in the dark, crying,
Can’t find the path to go.
Lord, I’ve climbed so many mountains,
Each one bigger than the one before,
And Lord, Lord, where are the valleys,
Where is some welcoming door?
Lord, this living is pain and trouble
That just won’t seem to die,
Must I climb, again, a mountain?
Why won’t you let me fly?
Unfortunately, I can’t record, or even remember the tune to which this was composed.
