Katy Perry — By The Grace Of God lyrics

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
Found 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
I picked myself back up
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 up 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
I picked myself back up
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 up that way

There ain't no
Not in the name
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

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 and decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me up that way
