Hurts of the Heart

Have you ever had your heart just ache
Bustin' like it was ready to quit?
Hurtin' like some wild thing stuck
Deep inside your chest?

Ever felt like you had failed
Had done nothin' right, nothin' good?
Have you sunk down deep into a holler
Filled with bitter darkness?

Wail at the dark,
Cry and ask God to make it better
Scream to the tops of the hills
For answers that you can't find.

Hold your head close
Cradle it an' cry.
Don't be 'fraid.

There is a new day,
A new day.
