Lyrics
It hurts to be so hated
It hurts to be so irritating
It hurts to know I breathe too loud, sing too loud
It hurts to know you wish I wasn't here right now
I'm so tired of trying
I feel like I'm dying

It hurts to be so understanding
It hurts to be so warm
Only to be met with ice
and find myself begging please, please, please be nice
Please don't be so cold
I am getting old and

I'm a child of God
born from the light
and I'm crying for mercy
on this sleepless night
and time is a thief
it's here and it's gone
it steals when we are in darkness
we wake up empty at dawn

I thought you were so great
I admit it! I tried to manipulate
love from you instead of hate
I plead guilty to the charge!
I know who I am but just look what you are

You're mean and you're cruel
Good looking and so cool
You're sweet and so savy
Playing me for a fool

So now that you're completely done
ride off into the sun
Stand tall, stay proud
You can scream, "I Won!" to the crowd but

I'm a child of God
born from the light
and I'm crying for mercy, mercy
on this sleepless night
and time is a thief
it's here and it's gone
it steals when we are in darkness
we wake up empty at dawn

And I will heal from all my sins
of trusting you with my heart once again
and I will heal from my poor choices
ignoring my inner voices

and I will cry me an ocean
I will just lay me down
I've let more time be stolen and
I'm much older now

and I will cry me an ocean
I will just lay me down
I've let more time be stolen and
I am much older now

Should I pray for a rainbow?
Do I dare dream of the sun?
I have been that to others but
Now I need someone and

I'm a child of God
born from the light
and I'm crying for mercy, mercy
on this sleepless night
and time is a thief
it's here and it's gone
it steals when we are in darkness
we wake up empty at dawn

I thought you were so great!

But I am a child of God
Born from the light
And I believe in mercy
So will sleep well tonight.
