LETTER TO A FRIEND

(Somehow)

Vs: 1 When I look into your eyes, somehow I think you can see

Somehow I know you understand me.

It seems strange to me but in your eyes somehow you see me, the real me.

The me so all alone, the me so utterly broken

The me that's expected to be all by herself, all on her own

With no one to help or help me stand

But yet somehow I know you have come to be take my hand

Perhaps be the only friend ….I have left.

Vs: 2 I see a faint smile on your lips, in a picture stilled for such a very long time.

In his (these) eyes and in his (this) smile I feel I can hide

Cause somehow I know you understand me, the real me.

The me that has been shattered oh so many times, the pain of no one here.

The pain of loss, the pain of too many years.

The pain that's never ending, in my body, heart and mind.

And the pain of indifference, the hardest kind.

Vs: 3 Somehow we share many things

Even the difference in time cannot change what loneliness brings.

Sleep for you was hard, for me it brings no peace, no relief.

Rest is hard to find.

When all that fills my mind

Is faces lost now to time.

For you it was the same.

They all know your name but few knew your pain.

My name is unknown

And soon forgotten by even those who are supposed to be my own.

But then the Lord and you know I am really and truly alone.

I am all but forgotten with her (mama) gone now

But somehow…..

Refrain: In the midst of my darkened room

Where the Lord sees my gloom

He sent you to me cause in your eyes I know you see me, the real me

Where I feel I can hide

Cause you know I can't go on

Maybe with you near me now it won't be long

Would you ask the Lord to help

Help take me home.

Vs: 4 No they don't see me but somehow I think you do

No they will never see me, their silence is the proof

For you, you were all alone even with the crowd.

For me being alone is the silence that is oh so loud.

You once cried 'help me Lord' and He heard you cry

And took you home to Himself, where you have been all this time

For me the cry continues unanswered yet I want to make the climb.

From them will never come an answer,

From Him the answer will come by and by.

The stage is empty for you now.

For me the curtain has not come down.

Perhaps you would put in a good word or two

And then I can join mama in Heaven

And perhaps if He will allow finally meet you too.

My newest, trust friend

Who somehow knows me and understands me….

Somehow…

Refrain: In the midst of my darkened room

Where the Lord sees my gloom

He sent you to me cause in your eyes I know you see me, the real me

Where I feel I can hide

Cause you know I can't go on

Maybe with you near me now it won't be long

Would you ask the Lord to help

Help take me home.

Final Refrain: Cause you know I can't go on

Maybe with you now near me it won't be long.

Would you ask the Lord to help

Help take me home.

Please Sir, could you ask our Jesus,

Please help me….

Help me go home.
