Tonight I’m sitting here and my heart is torn,

This world’s got me crying, my life is so worn.
Worn and weary I don’t know what to do.
what I’m feeling and dealing, I wish someone knew.
So much strife and heartache and fear.
I think about death, and believe it is near.
How can I go from being so close 
To being so far 
From the One I love most?
How can I stop
This this road that I’m on? 
How can I turn 
Before I am gone?
