Songfacts®:

  • On several Love Revolution tracks, Grant expresses an urgency for Christians to do something worthwhile for this world. On this song she sings: "I've had enough/of the same old tired ordinary world/telling my heart/that I'm nothing but an ordinary girl." Grant told Crosswalk that she rejects the notion that one person can't make a difference. "I hear people say all the time, 'Well, it' s easy for you; you have a platform and can speak to thousands of people.' But it's not about that. It's about the one. It's about compelling people to live their lives in such a way that they'd give it away for just one. I'm not saying that everybody has to have the same cause. Just do something. Don't do nothing. Don't sit by and live your life and do your best to love your kids and love your neighbor. Do something that is greater."
