Letter To God
Hole Lyrics


Dear God
I’m writing this letter to you
'Cause I don’t have a clue
Can you help me?

I’m sitting here
Simply trying to figure out
What my life’s all about
Can you tell me?
I never wanted to be
The person you see
Can you tell me who I am?
I always wanted to die
But you kept me here alive
Can you tell me who I am?

I lie awake
Conducting this symphony
That you have gifted to me
But I can’t ever sleep

Don’t be mad
But I get weak inside
And I start to fall apart
'Cause I feel nothing

I never wanted to be
Some kind of comic relief
Please show me who I am
I've been tortured and scorned
Since the day that I was born
But I don't know who I am

And I thank you man for everything
Sorry I'm so frightened about all of it
But I wish I could give you more
And all the lights are shining down on me
And I feel intimidated by it all

I never wanted to be
The person you see
But thank you

Oh, God please tell me now
Are you disappointed, are you proud?
Haven’t I done everything, everything

I’m so sorry I’m so weak
And I’ve turned into a freak
But I don’t know anything, anything

I’ve lost all self-esteem
By burying everything
And I feel nothing, nothing

Oh God please tell me now
Oh God please tell me now
'Cause I feel nothing

And dear God
I’m writing this letter to you
I am coming unglued
Please help me

Dear God

'Cause I don't have a clue

Simply trying to figure out
What my life's all about
Can you tell me?
I never wanted to be
The person you see
Can you tell me who I am?
I always wanted to die
But you kept me here alive
Can you tell me who I am?
I lie awake

But I can't ever sleep
Don't be mad
But I get weak inside
And I start to fall apart
'Cause I feel nothing

Oh God please tell me now
Oh God please tell me now

I am coming unglued
Please help me

@Manfred Okorn and her upbringing but most of what Courtney does is about Kurt dying had he not died her life would be totally different she would have not have struggled as bad and people are cruel saying she killed him when she almost did not survive his death and suicide was in his past his fans hate her because she survived the chaos and he did not and thats unfair she had to live for Frances sadly he thought Frances was better off without him thats the demon of the disease depression it lies to you it lied to Kurt bless him

Manfred Okorn

Ietter to god is a good but also a sad song and I guess it is because of Kurt

Manfred Okorn

It's a sad song but beautiful... I think it's because of Kurt
