I feel your eyes crawling over me
As though I am something more than me
But I don't have anything good enough to say
I did not make myself this way

I'll show you what he did
But I won't take the credit
It's not mine anyway
I just held the pen that day

And I don't deserve this
This time right now
It's not something for which I can take the bow
And I don't deserve this
It wasn't me
I can't take glory for something that I can't be
I don't deserve this

I know what perfection is like
And I cannot stand before it's might
And I'm so far from what you think that I must be
I just drown myself in mercy

I'll show you what he did
But I won't take the credit
It's not mine anyway
I just held the pen that day

And I don't deserve this
This time right now
It's not something for which I can take the bow
And I don't deserve this
It wasn't me
I can't take glory for something that I can't be
I don't deserve this
This time right now
It's not something for which I can take the bow
And I don't deserve this

And all the art that I supposedly create
Is simply a faded reflection of something he's already made

And I don't deserve this
This time right now
It's not something for which I can take the bow
And I don't deserve this
It wasn't me
I can't take glory for something that I can't be
I don't deserve this

    This song holds a very strong meaning to me it takes me back to the day I gave my life to Jesus Christ at that moment he began a transformation in me that words don't describe. Fellow friends, coworkers, and family members noticed an extreme difference in me that I was praised for how "I" had changed my life and simply I don't deserve any glory for my transformation. Fact of the matter is I took a step in faith and trusted God with my life, he changed my desires and molded me into the person I am now and am still becoming.

    She is describing fans that glorify her to be something great. She is stating that she isn't worthy of such praise, because anything beautiful that she creates is from God.
    "All the art that I supposedly create. Is simply a faded reflection of something He's already made"
    "I know what perfection is like, and I cannot stand before its might"

    Lacey is a Christian.

    I think it means that she can't take credit for her inspirational songs beacause they're God's works she sings about, not hers. Great song anyway no matter what it really means. Lol

    this song is difficult to understand but i think its about her being in a relationship and it changed her. or it could be she was being blamed for something good that she didnt do if that makes sence.

    this song could have different meanings, but the 1 that really stands out to me is that maybe something happened and she's taking the blame but she cant help it. ok i'm in the computer lab at school so i have to go now. i'll maybe add on later when i get home
