Lonely Enough

This is another song I’d never heard until Camp Widow. I managed to not cry all day Thursday, all day Friday, and half of Saturday…until I sat in the ‘Mad at God’ workshop, which started out with this song. The flood finally unleashed, and I bawled like a baby. I still do when I hear it. But that’s not such a bad thing.

Full recap nearly finished, check back tomorrow!

Little Big Town — Lonely Enough

It’s been a long time since I prayed
Let the words fall where they may
Forgive me now
for what I’m about to say
Tired of being on my knees
Sick of begging you please
Since the day you took him away from me
God, how much more do I have to hurt?
How far down do you wanna see me go, tell me
God, you don’t know the sadness of this place
You’ve got the angels and the saints
So give me back my love
Don’t you think I’m lonely enough?
You’ve got the power in your hands
To change the master plan
Every star and every grain of sand
You can bring him back today
Just roll thestone away
Before there’s nothing left of me to save
God, how much more do I have to hurt?
How far down do you wanna see me go, tell me
God, you don’t know the sadness of this place
You’ve got the angels and the saints
So give me back my love Don’t you think I’m lonely enough?

I love little big town. Bring on home is one of my favorites. It’s what I send to Kev when he gets too down :)

10.5 years later, this song stirs up those feelings I had after he died. Thank you for sharing. It’s good to be reminded of him all these years later.

wow, Erin. I’m sobbing for you. I can’t even imagine the kind of loss you live with each day. What I love about this song is how it not long gives words to what so many must feel, but also gives permission to be mad at God, which is the path to reconciling with God. (I went through a different but similar path when my TBI robbed me of my writing career 3 months before my first book released). You inspire me.
