These times will try hard to define me
And I’ll try to hold my head up high
But I’ve seen despair here from the inside
And it’s got a one track mind

And I have this feeling in my gut now
And I don’t know what it is I’ll find
Does anybody ever feel like
You’re always one step behind

Now I’m sitting alone here in my bed
I’m waiting for an answer I don’t know that I’ll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror, I’m failing
I’m telling you these times are hard
But they will

And I know there’s someone out there somewhere
Who has it much worse than I do
But I have a dream inside, a perfect life
I’d give anything just to work
It’s like I’m only trying to dig my way out
Of all these things I can’t

And I am sitting alone here in my bed
I’m waiting for an answer I don’t know that I’ll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror, I’m failing
I’m telling you these times are hard
But they will pass
They will pass
They will pass
These times are hard
But they will

These times will try hard to define me
But I will hold my head up high

Sitting alone here in my bed
I’m waiting for an answer I don’t know that I’ll get
I cannot stand to look in the mirror, I’m failing
I’m telling you these times are hard
But they will pass

And I know there’s a reason
I just keep hoping it won’t be long ’til I see it
And maybe if we throw up our hands and believe it
I’m telling you these times are hard
But they will pass
They will pass
They will pass
These times are hard
But they will pass

SafetySuit – These Times

This song is powerful, especially in these times. Whatever troubles you may be going through, they will pass. Many of the problems that we face these days tend to make us second guess ourselves. They even make us hate ourselves, because they refuse to let us do the things that give us self respect. Many people are without jobs in this tough economy, and they cannot provide for their families, or they lose their homes. Some are trapped by diseases and conditions that they have to focus on overcoming at the expense of the concerns that healthy people can focus on and tackle.

There is someone out there somewhere who really does care. You may keep praying for an answer, and that answer may be long in the coming, but it will come. He knows what you are going through, and He will help hold you up until the hard times pass.

The coolest thing about this song is that it shows each of us one very important thing. No matter how bad things may seem, and how alone we may feel, we are never alone. There are other people out there going through the same struggles that we are. We are never alone, we have our God, and we have our human family that goes through everything with us. Don’t ever think that your troubles don’t affect other people – they do, and others will flock to help you if you let them.
