The Unknown – Insight Timer Arrangement Medley

This medley holds arrangements of these three songs: The Unknown, The Door, and Misunderstood.

The links to stories about my songs include recordings with vocals.

THE UNKNOWN

This song changed my life. I was unable to express how unhappy I was in my marriage, but music pulled out heartfelt lyrics that gave me the courage to face the unknown. Sometimes people stay where they are, even when it’s miserable because it’s “known.” The unknown can be scary, but it also can be beautiful.

THE UNKNOWN – Copyright 2016 by Judy Unger

I go through my day to places that heal me

I cannot stay, you no longer feel me

My words will stun you, ‘cause I’ve begun to

Leave you behind; I escape in my mind

My tears I hide when you are near me

I cry inside where you can’t hear me

I’ve watched you brood; avoid your mood

There’s no connection without affection

I run from you; don’t know where to

The touch you withhold leaves me cold

That’s when I withdrew

I feel so alone; your heart is like stone

I lie awake and feel my heart break

I’m ready to face the unknown

You’re caught off-guard; this is so hard

The touch that I crave has made me so brave

I’ve known you so long I must alert you

This feels so wrong I hate to hurt you

With all this pain, I can’t remain

You might not miss me, ‘cause you never kiss me

I run from you; don’t know where to

The touch you withhold leaves me cold

I’ve stopped loving you

For years I stayed, ‘cause I was afraid

don’t even know where I will go

But I’m am ready

I run from you; don’t know where to

I lie awake and feel my heart break

I’m ready to live on my own

I’ll face the unknown

The Door Glowing

After “The Unknown” I wrote the lyrics that helped me move through a door. Doors lead in and doors lead out. I was willing to take step through a door because self-worth guided me.

THE DOOR – Copyright 2016 by Judy Unger

When I close the door and it’s no secret anymore

Then you’ll know, how sad we were together

I left you long ago

When the closet is bare

empty spaces everywhere

But you knew, the truth I was absent

my distance only grew

When love went away, I just couldn’t stay

It was time; I knew it then

To begin my life again

I would be ok, even though love went away

My soul I could restore, if I went through the door

When the sheets are still

silence a TV just can’t fill

all those years, pretending I was happy

I cried so many tears

As you look upon

the empty spaces when I’m gone

You must face the love you took for granted

with every single empty space

When love went away, I just couldn’t stay

It was time; I knew it then

To begin my life again

I would be ok, even though love went away

I left because

I was worth more

so I went through the door

misunderstood

This song was written after I had a terrible disagreement with my eldest son. The lyrics express regret over things we said to each other.

MISUNDERSTOOD – Copyright 2016 by Judy Unger

You won’t forgive me for that argument

Those words you heard I never meant

Your wounds are raw; too hurt to move on

You say your trust is gone

Misunderstood, left with regret

Painful words you can’t forget

I’d take them back, if I only could

Instead I’m left misunderstood

I know you’re hurt; I wish you knew

Nothing can change my love for you

You pretend that you’re okay

But this chill won’t go away

Misunderstood, left with regret

Painful words you can’t forget

I’d take them back, if I only could

Instead I’m left misunderstood

The walls you’ve built protect you now

I want to tear them down somehow

Misunderstood, left with regret

Painful words you can’t forget

I’d take them back, if I only could

Instead I’m left misunderstood
