Beauty from Pain Lyrics
The lights go out all around me One last candle to keep out the night And then the darkness surrounds me I know I'm alive But I feel I like I died
And all that's left is to accept that it's over My dreams ran like sand through the face that I made I try to keep on but I just grow colder I feel like I'm slipping away
CHORUS After all this has passed I still will remain After I've cried my last There'll be beauty from pain Though it won't be today Someday I'll hope again And I'll be beauty from pain You will bring beauty from my pain
My whole world is the pain inside me The best I can do is just get through the day When life before is only a memory I wonder why God lets me walk through this place
And though I can't understand why this happened I know I will when I look back someday And see how You've brought beauty from ashes And made me as gold purified through these flames...
Here I am at the end of me Trying to hold to what I can't see I forgot how to hope This night's been so long I cling to your promise there will be a dawn...
Song Description: "This came from a struggle, a broken heart, and a time in my life when things fell apart. My dreams seemed to be coming true and then, in one conversation, they all fell apart. All I had left was God and to believe He was with me. He cried with me and helped me believe there was a purpose to the pain. The Bible became so real to me, and I meditated on Scripture like I had never done before. One passage, Job 23, is what inspired this song. Verse 12 read: 'But when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold.' I held onto that, and He didn't fail me! I know so many other people have and will relate to that kind of pain and loss. That's part of the beauty of the pain... helping other people through their pain." - Tricia Brock (Superchick)
