By the Grace of God

  • Was 27 surviving my return to Saturn
    A long vacation didn't sound so bad
    Was full of secrets locked up tight like iron melting
    Running on empty, so out of gas

    Thought I wasn't enough and I wasn't so tough
    Laying on the bathroom floor
    We were living on a fault line
    And I felt the fault was all mine
    Couldn't take it any more

    By the grace of God (there was no other way)
    I picked myself back up (I knew I had to stay)
    I put one foot in front of the other and I
    Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
    Wasn't gonna let love take me out
    That way

    I thank my sister for keeping my head above the water
    When the truth was like swallowing sand
    Now every morning
    There is no more morning oh I
    Can finally see myself again

    I know I am enough
    Possible to be loved
    It was not about me
    Now I have to rise above
    Let the universe call the bluff
    Yeah the truth will set you free

    By the grace of God (there was no other way)
    I picked myself back up (I knew I had to stay)
    I put one foot in front of the other and I
    Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
    Wasn't gonna let love take me out

    That way no
    There ain't no
    Not in the name of love
    In the name of love (in the name of love)
    That way
    There ain't no
    I'm not giving up

    By the grace of God
    I picked myself back up
    I put one foot in front of the other and I
    Looked in the mirror (looked in the mirror)
    Looked in the mirror (looked in the mirror)

    By the grace of God (there was no other way)
    I picked myself back up (I knew I had to stay)
    I put one foot in front of the other and I
    Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
    Wasn't gonna let love take me out
    That way Writer/s: Greg Wells, Katy Perry
