Jonah33 – This Is It (You Instead Of Me) lyrics

Because I'm playing for keeps this time around
I'm in too deep
To think about falling down
And giving up again
I want to live each day just like
It was my last chance to prove
You're all I have
And that is all I need

This is it, it's what we're waiting for!
This is it, it's all we're fighting for!
I finally get a chance to show the world
What You have done for me
So let this moment be
You instead of me

Tired and bruised, every broken bone
Reminds me that I'm far from home
And these scars remind me who I am
But You're the one
The Reason that I run
And I won't stop until You're done
You're the only hope I have

I've counted the cost and I know
Everything that really matters is
Everything worth fighting for
