He doesn't know that there is another way
Everything he's tried won't work
He thinks that money will buy him happiness
He thinks that finding his talent will show the world

 Yet the hole remains
All the empty space
The world is crashing in around him
He drowns because of the sorrow
He thinks he will drink his pain away
Yet it doesn't go away
It just becomes deeper
He can't get rid of it
A bigger hole remains

Emptiness is all he can find
Empty beer bottles
Empty dreams
Empty promises....

The alcohol isn't the answer
He only craves more
The drugs aren't the answer
The addictions only become bigger and bigger in his life
Gambling to get what he thinks he needs
Yet the hole in his heart remains
It hurts so much
And he aches so
But does he really know
What the answer is in his life?

He's learned that pride isn't the answer
It only led him to destruction
Drinking won't stop the tears
That stream down his face
Nor will it numb his pain
The empty bottles lay scattered across the floor
Parties with people that he won't even remember
Nights with women whose names he didn't know
The tears never stop
The hurt never ceases
The hole in his heart stabs harder
He falls deeper and deeper into sin
He doesn't know what caused it
He tries hard to push against the walls
But he can't knock them down                        

The empty room only gets smaller
And it's getting harder to breathe
Because he can't run away........

He knows that something is wrong with him
That something is wrong with the world
He realizes that everyone tries to give him something to fill him up
Yet, he still feels alone
He doesn't realize WHO can fill him up
Who can take his pain and emptiness away
So, he falls deeper and deeper
And it's that much harder to find happiness
because everything seems empty

The pictures begin to disappear from the frames on the wall
He stumbles along through the road of life
Not knowing which way to go
He stops at the intersection staring at which direction to take
Hurt cause he's falling
Getting harder to breathe
Running from everything he's tried to make him happy
He wrestles in his own sin

The bottle isn't the answer
It just becomes empty
The world screams at him that everyone is that way
He thinks he has no choice
But to live life like he is
While his life rushes by him
And he cries
His years are whizzing by
Choking tears back
That he's tried to hide
But he can't hide them anymore
Cause he can't find the answer
To to why his heart hurts so much

He falls apart in an empty room
Tears fall upon the floor
He falls on his face wanting more
He needs Jesus
He is the One that will fill this emptiness up
God is the one who can truly give him happiness
He needs Jesus
He need His love
His mercy
How he needs to see God's love
But does he know of God's grace?
Does he know that Jesus is the ONLY way
The answer to his pain.....
Will someone tell him of the One that gave his life so that we can have life?
He lay there suffocating
Thinking emptiness is all there is to life
Everything comes crashing down
The empty pictures frames fall off the walls
Glass shatters all around him
He sobs desperately
Falling apart inside
With all the hurt that he is trying to hide

"I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE.
No man comes to the Father except through me." -John 14:6

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. " -John 3:16-18
