I Give Up

Here I am, standing on the edge.
I can't make it alone anymore.
I fall to my knees,
Lord, I give up. Forgive me.
I've come to the place,
Where you are is what I need.
I have no one to blame.
I give up, take away these sins.
Too long the road I've walked,
Carrying in my heart,
Those things I should cast aside.
This is where I give up.
Here I am, waiting for your love;
Waiting for your embrace,
Giving my soul and might to you.
Forgive me.
