A friend of mine had a hard night. After she told me, it took a couple days for it to really hit me.

Tears blur the sunbathed road
To the Sunday service
Worship at a time like this?
Impossible

I can only be there and pray
How can that be enough?
How can that be enough?

How can I go on
Pretending all is well
When her aim that night
Was to not see another dawn?

Don't be mad she'd said
She thought Him gone
He has a better life for you
Ask Him about it

I can only be there and pray
How can that be enough?
How can that be enough?

How can I go on
Pretending all is well
When her aim that night
Was to not see another dawn?

Composure is fleeting
Concern from others
Shatters the glass of denial
The heavy heart will not stop bleeding

I can only be there and pray
How can that be enough?
How can that be enough?

How can I go on
Pretending all is well
When her aim that night
Was to not see another dawn?

Worship begins
I cannot stay
The frozen morning has no sympathy
No hiding in the car so, the bathroom

Someone sees and comforts
The words you spoke were True she says
God has her in His hands
As He has His arm around you

I can only be there and pray
With Him that is enough
With Him that is enough

Enough
