Written for a friend who was going through a rough patch. While we can't actually walk in someone's shoes, we can certainly provide a shoulder - physical and/or metaphorical - to ease the burden of their journey.


Help me, Help me, mother
Shine your light down on me
In my darkness I can’t see what road I’m on
Help me , Help me, mother
Take these chains from my legs
They’re so heavy - I’m just trying to get back home

I’ve been looking for my savior
She ain’t been around in a while
You always promised she would never give up on me
I’m tired of stumbling
I’m tired of falling down
I’m tired of navigating this world on my own
Help me

Help me, Help me, mother
Find my wings so I can fly
I want to soar up in heaven with you
Help me, Help me mother
Make some sense of this mean old world
‘Cause right now I don’t know what to do
There’s an angel
On my shoulder
And there’s a devil at my knee
But there’s nothing at all where my soul used to be

I’m still looking
For my savior
She ain’t been around for a long long while
Maybe she forgot she ain’t supposed to give up on me

I’m tired of being lost
But I’m scared of being found
I’m tired of trying to find some sacred ground
Help me
I’m tired of being sick
I’m tired of being poor
I’m tired of wondering what the hell I’m living for
Help me
