Instead of (Zamiast)

English translation

Instead of

You my lord have so much time
A house in the clouds and the sky
Yet I have so many issues on my mind
On top of which I only have one life
 
You know everything much better
Because you watch us from a bird's eye view
So tell me why it's like this for me
That sometimes I can only sit and cry
 
I do not complain about my fate
I am meek as a lamb
And I only hope that
That you probably know what you're doing Lord
 
How many sins I have who knows
I have no space in my head to count them
Even though you forgive them all
You are not meticulous after all
 
So why are there gates outside of paradise for me
You lead with such a winding road
And why do you make me have these experiences
As if you wanted me to become a saint
 
I do not want to complain about my fate
I do not ask for more than you can give
I constantly have hope that
That you probably know what you're doing God
 
This life will pass like a bad dream
Like a tragic comedy-drama
And when I wake I'll take in
All this was perhaps instead of
 
But for now I remain in turmoil
I count the grey years on my fingers
And only sometimes a thought sinks in
After all I'm not here for punishment
 
Today I feel like an ant when
Someones boot tramples over her ant farm
Why did you make me believe in the impossible
And then take everything back
 
I do not want to complain about my fate
Though I know how tomorrow morning will be
I wanted to tell you so many things
Instead of a prayer goodnight

It would've helped to have the proper Polish spelling :/
