Going Through Something

Everybody’s going, going through something

No one has this life all figured out

Everybody’s tired of feeling alone here

I’m just desperate enough to shout it out

Mercy was just a girl with the world on a string

With straight A’s and high praise, such a pure seventeen

Until one day the birds and the bees change her history

Pablo just lost his dad to the unnatural grave

Now his hero is gone and it’s his time to save

Can he be what his family needs him to be?

Sarah’s husband is gone, now she’s pushing back debt

With a job and three kids there’s no time for regret

In the land of the free she just clings to survival

John is back off the track now he’s high off his train

As his friends and his family are praying for rain

Seems like only a breakdown can lead to revival

Everybody’s going, going through something

No one has this life all figured out

Everybody’s tired of feeling alone here

I’m just desperate enough to shout it out

Nicky fights with disease while he sings for the choir

All the voices around him say that he’s admired

For a strength that most days he’d trade to be well now

Sally Loo’s at the church with a smile on her face

No on knows that she feels like she’s falling from grace

They can’t see all the demons making life hell now

Everybody’s going, going through something

No one has this life all figured out

Everybody’s tired of feeling alone here

I’m just desperate enough to shout it out

David’s down on his luck, now he’s begging for change

As I walked by I realized that we were the same

We all start out naked and crying for love

I know everyone here can contribute a verse

These are cards that we’re dealt, for better or worse

Now it’s time that we look around and above

Everybody’s going, going through something

No one has this life all figured out

There’s no need for us to feel alone here

I’m just desperate enough to shout it out

I’m just desperate enough to shout it out
