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 thanked my sister
For keeping my head above the water
When the truth was like swallowing sand
Now every morning hope
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 my 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

    Katy Perry is sharing with the world how she got through difficult moments in her life. And how God has helped her through those difficult times. (Such as her divorce with Russell Brand, her trouble with Illuminotti, etc.) And showing that there is a glimpse of hope when you are struggling from hard times. God Bless Katy!

    Katy Perry shows her expressions through songs. So one of this is By the Grace of God. It illustrates here about don't give up on everything and take the risk. Divorcements, Broken hearts (but sometimes it sends you to death), Family Problems or school problems or in Friendship, don't give up, By the Grace of God, pick yourself up and be strong, stay strong, live strong. Don't hide, Face your fears somehow and Just don't give up, cause if we always think of hopeless things, nothing happens, but if you have hope in Mind, Hope in Soul, and hope in heart.

    But also when you heard about the Break up Divorce of Katy Perry and ex-husband Russel Brand, she almost got suicide, but she still kept herself strong and continue life with God, life is a risk. Take it and you'll get what good will happen.
