Sick of this pain
The pain that endures
My thoughts, my life
I am so sure
That I’m stuck in this place
Between who I am
And what I feel
I thought I could do it
I thought I could deal
What do you do
When the world spins on
And all the while
You can't figure out
What’s wrong
Lately everything hurts
To the core of my soul
Something’s not right

[Chorus]
Oh, God only knows
Can’t keep control
But God only knows
I’ll trust you to guide me
Take all of these burdens
Take them off of me
Throw them in the fire
And burn them for me
Oh, God only knows

I try not to let him bother me
I try to stay strong
But every time I do it my way
I forget you’re there all along
I get confused easily
As to why you put me here
What have I done to please you?
I give in to all my fears
I hardly trust you
And I am perfectly imperfect
As this pain grows deeper
It continues to surface
I don’t know what to do next
As I lie here in shock
That you would actually want me
That you’d actually be my Rock

[Chorus]
Oh, God only knows
Oh, God only knows
Can’t keep control
But God only knows
I’ll trust you to guide me
Take all of these burdens
Take them off of me
Throw them in the fire
And burn them for me
Oh, God only knows

Tell me, tell me
Everything wrong with me
Cause I’m looking for answers
In all the wrong places
Talkin’ to the wrong faces
Show me, show me
The basis
Of these problems
And I promise you
I’ll write a song about them
Maybe then I’ll truly see
The big picture
I’ve been missin’ all along
Oh, don’t give up on me now
You’ve stayed with me this far
I can’t wait to see what’s next
As I drive miles in this car

[Chorus]
Oh, God only knows
Can’t keep control
But God only knows
I’ll trust you to guide me
Take all of these burdens
Take them off of me
Throw them in the fire
And burn them for me
Oh, God only knows
