I Need Me

Once in awhile when I feel overwhelmed
I need a place to retreat and spend some time by myself
rest my mind, ease my heart.. twister blow me back to start
maybe read, maybe write, watch "It's a Wonderful Life"

I need me today to hold myself tight
voice my fears right out loud and have a good cry
Don't worry 'bout me 'cause I'll be okay
I just need me today

I need to be still don't want to talk on the phone
with my family or friends I need some time all alone
It's not that I'm sad or that I want to escape
but it's good to re-group and talk to me face-to-face

I need me today to look myself in the eye
to assess all my strengths and tell me I'll be alright
These feelings will pass and I'll be okay
I just need me today

I need me today to regain my pride
to realize my worth and with God by my side
I'll take on the world and I'll be okay
I just need me today

These feelings will pass and I'll be okay
I just need me today
