Dear Yetzer Horah

A letter to the Y"H: This is what I will be telling you when you come knocking again, and I know you will...

by Anonymous (See all authors)

At first, I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking, I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong and I learned how to get along

And so you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sneaky look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I'd known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Go on now, go, walk out the door, just turn around now
Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one, who tried to hurt me with your lie?
Did you think I'd crumble? Did you think I'd lie down and die?

Oh, no, not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to live, I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live, I've got a family to give
And I'll survive, I will survive, hey, hey
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent, oh, so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry but now I hold my head up high

And you see me, somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person still infatuated with you
And so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
But now I'm saving all my loving for Someone Who's loving me

and that's God... every moment
