  • Feeling like I'm breathing my last breath
    Feeling like I'm walking my last steps
    Look at all of these tears I've wept
    Look at all the promises that I've kept

    I put my heart into your hands
    Here's my soul to keep
    I let you in with all that I can
    You're not hard to reach
    And you've blessed me with the best gift
    That I've ever known
    You give me purpose
    Yeah, you've given me purpose

    Thinking my journey's come to an end, oh
    Sending out a farewell to my friends
    For inner peace
    Ask you to forgive me for my sins
    Oh would you please?
    I'm more than grateful for the time we spent
    My spirit's at ease

    I put my heart into your hands
    Learn the lessons you teach
    No matter when, wherever I am
    You're not hard to reach
    And you've given me the best gift
    That I've ever known
    You give me purpose everyday
    You give me purpose in every way

    Oh, you are my everything
    Oh, you are my everything

    I don't know if this is wrong
    Because someone else is telling me that it's wrong
    But I feel this so let me just like, try my best not to let this happen again
    We weren't necessarily put in the best position to make the best decisions
    You can't be hard on yourself for these were the cards that you were given
    So you have to understand that these like
    That's not who you are
    You know you're trying to be the best you can be
    But that's all you can do
    If you don't give it all you got, you're only cheating yourself
    Give it all you got
    But if it ends up happening, it ends up happening
    That's what it's that's what's happening with me
    It's like, God I'm giving it all I got
    Sometimes I'm weak and I'm gonna do it
    And it's like I'm not giving myself grace
    I'm just like understanding, that's just how it is Writer/s: Jason Boyd, Justin Bieber, Stephen James Philibin, Eben Wares, Jeremy Snyder, Scooter Braun
