I am up, then I'm down
From one moment to the next
Breathing in, breathing out
I'm gasping for breath
I am searching far, searching wide
For an answer that is mine

I am empty handed, singing
I'm broken and I'm stranded, crying
I'm not sure how much more I can take
I am sure that I will break
Empty handed

I am down, then I'm tired
There's nothing I can do
Hope was filled in a glass
I was falling over you
I am losing heart
Hear my cry
Please don't leave me here
My cup is dry

I am empty handed, singing
I'm broken and I'm stranded, crying
I'm not sure how much more I can take
I am sure that I will break
Empty handed

God, you left me high and dry
I can hear you calling my name
Calling my name
I was timid as a child
Can you hear me screaming your name?
Screaming your name
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

I am empty handed, singing
I'm broken and I'm stranded, crying
I'm not sure how much more I can take
I am sure that I will break
Empty handed
