My Own Worst Enemy

Album: Come to The Well (2011)
  • God, help me get away
    Break the chains and set me free
    From the other side of me
    I am my own worst enemy

    I caught a glimpse in my rearview mirror
    Of an old familiar face
    Blurry image coming in clearer
    Of a past I can't erase
    I could've sworn I put him in the ground
    But looks like he's found his way out

    God, help me get away
    Break the chains and set me free
    From the other side of me
    I can't fight this fight alone
    I'll never make it on my own
    Lord Jesus, rescue me
    From my own worst enemy

    I'll take a step and it's right behind me
    Always fighting for control
    There's a war that's raging inside me
    I feel the battle for my soul
    It's like my shadow is dragging me around
    And You are my only way out

    God, help me get away
    Break the chains and set me free
    From the other side of me
    I can't fight this fight alone
    I'll never make it on my own
    Lord Jesus, rescue me
    From my own worst enemy

    Lord, help me feed the life I'm trying to live
    And starve the life I'm trying to leave
    Help me believe the old is dead and gone
    And I am a new creation

    God, help me get away
    Break the chains and set me free
    From the other side of me
    I can't fight this fight alone
    I'll never make it on my own
    Lord Jesus, rescue me
    From my own worst enemy
    From my own worst enemy Writer/s: JOHN MARK HALL, MATTHEW WEST
