Basket Case

It’s been almost a year. Almost a year since the broken pieces of my life finally crumbled and fell apart. How different life can be in a year. I am so far removed from the girl I was 11 months ago. Sometimes I look in the mirror to see if traces of that girl still exists. Colorado has been a place of healing – of hope and restoration. Yet here we are, coming up on the one year anniversary and all of a sudden that girl starts to reappear. My confidence is shaky and my resolve waning. I need to get away. I need time where no one knows where I am, my phone is off and my computer shut down. I need to sit down with the Lord in uninterrupted silence and just be near Him. Because for now “Basket Case” is the best way to sum up my collective emotions.

I don’t want to talk about it to you

I’m not an open book that you can rifle through

The cold hard truth that you’ll see right to

I’m just a basket case without you.

You’re begging for the truth

So I’m saying it to you

I’ve been saving your place

And what good does it do?
Now I’m just a basket case

Now I’m just a basket case

Won’t somebody come on in and tug at my seams?

Oh, send your armies in of robbers and thieves

To steal the state I’m in I don’t want it anymore.
