  • I was a boat stuck in a bottle
    That never got the chance to touch the sea
    Just forgot on the shelf
    No wind in the sails
    Going no where with no one but me
    I was one in one-hundred billion
    A burned out star in a galaxy
    Just lost in the sky wondering why
    Everyone else shines out but me

    But
    I came to life when I first kissed you
    The best me has his arms around you
    You make me better than I was before
    Thank God I'm yours

    I was a worn out set of shoes
    Wandering the city street
    Another face in the crowd
    Head looking down
    Lost in the sound of a lonely melody
    Empty pockets at a roulette
    Always landing on a lost bet
    Just live for the spin and hope for the win
    Go all in just to lose again

    But
    I came to life when I first kissed you
    The best me has his arms around you
    You make me better than I was before
    Thank God I'm yours
    The worst me is just a long gone memory
    You put a new heartbeat inside of me
    You make me better than I was before
    Thank God I'm yours

    I was a boat stuck in a bottle
    That never got the chance to touch the sea

    I came to life when I first kissed you
    The best me has his arms around you
    You make me better than I was before
    Thank God I'm yours
    The worst me is just a long gone memory
    You put a new heartbeat inside of me
    You make me better than I was before
    Thank God I'm yours
    Thank God I'm yours
    Thank God I'm yours
    Thank God I'm yours Writer/s: Kaci Brown, Parker Welling, Russell Dickerson
