SONG LYRICS

Verse
Momma calls down to me and says, “got some bad news.”
I won’t be sleeping in bed tonight.
I’m swirling in my thoughts, clouding like a storm,
and yet everything stands still.

Pre-chorus
Though he’s gone his light remains, but it seems the hurt will last forever
Though I’ve tried, I’ve tried in vain, can’t make these feelings, feelings go away

Chorus
But I’m trying
To understand the way I feel inside
I’m helpless and overwhelmed this time
Will this heal?
Can you heal, heal me?

Verse
Looking back and picturing all the moments;
All the memories we share.
I’m learning to move on and remember who I was and how I cared.

Pre-chorus
Though he’s gone my light remains, He taught me how no hurt can last forever
And from His love, my world is changed, don’t let these feelings, feelings go away

Chorus
And I’m trying
To understand the way I feel inside
I’m helpless and overwhelmed this time
Will this heal?
Can You heal?
Oooo

And I’m trying
To understand the way I feel inside
I’m helpless and overwhelmed this time
Will this heal?
Can you heal?

But now I know
Yeah I understand this will take some time
And it will be alright cuz I’ve been shown
I can heal
He will heal me.

DESCRIPTION
“Heal Me,” was written in honor of my good friend, Eric, who was killed in a car accident during our sixth-grade year. Having been really young when it all happened, much of my memory is fogged over, leaving me with very few vivid memories. One of the things that is so clear in my mind STILL, is learning of the “bad news.” My heart was broken to lose a friend like Eric. I hadn’t really considered the possibility that my sweet friend could actually die. In my heart I just knew that he was going to be okay. Remembering is eventually what brought this whole song together. I memorized a poem that Eric’s uncle wrote for his funeral. This is my favorite part: “We may forget how he walked; we may forget how he talked, but we will never forget how he loved with a pure heart and arms wide open.” In the second verse I reflect on “how he loved with a pure heart and arms wide open.” Remembering his goodness and our friendship eventually helped me understand and get through so much of the pain I went through. Though he’s gone his light remains, BUT it seems the hurt will last forever... can’t make these feelings go away. Even as an 11 year old kid I knew that Eric believed in Jesus Christ and that He was the source of Eric’s goodness – and my faith through this loss that Eric was ok and that I would heal. I have grown older and come across new challenges. I am finding that remembering the good, will remind me of Christ’s interest and attention to my story personally. As the song evolves, the “He” becomes Christ. HE is the ONLY way to find healing; “He only one.”
