Hide From Me

Hide from me
Though I know You're still there
Behind the wall
I built around my heart

Hide from me
Though I know You're still there
Behind the smiles
I fake to please others

Hide from me
Though I know You're still there
Behind the shadows
I cast blocking Your light

There is no wall
There is no joy
There is no darkness
Where I can hide from You

And yet I still pray...
