A soulful expression of deep sorrow at sin this song is one of Jamaican singer/songwriter/poet/general writer Sean C. Harrison's many inspiring and moving pieces which chronicle the reality of the Christian's striving against sin. It is an appeal for help from the God of Heaven and earth to strengthen and pardon. Truly heartfelt music written, played and sung by him.
In the sense that we are always as people of God faced with challenges to our faith, this song chronicles a desire to be strong and victorious over the scourge of sin recognizing the reality of the cosmic battle between good and evil which often leaves us depleted and spent trying to walk circumspectly. His music always reflects triumph in tragedy and he believes he will find an eager audience as his works become more exposed to the wider world.

There are those days when I feel,
I can move mountains, I can cross rivers because of you,
I feel so strong and so sure you are with me,
That you hear me whenever I pray,
Then sin comes between us,
And it seems I'm miles away from you.
Separated again from the Lord I once knew,
And understood to be pure and true,
In the darkness again, alienated from Him,
And all because of my very own sin.
When those days without you come around,
I'm so sad and deeply in pain,
Agonising for you, reaching for that place,
Where we were as one,
I'm hoping you'll hear me,
And see my weakness and my need.
So I'll try to do the right, I'll never give up the fight,
I'll trust you more. You will see, because I don't want to be.
