Katy Perry – By The Grace Of God lyrics

[Verse 1]
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.

[Pre-Chorus]
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.

[Chorus]
By the grace of god (there were no other way),
I picked myself back up (I knew I had to stay).
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.

[Verse 2]
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.

[Pre-Chorus]
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.

[Chorus]
By the grace of god (there were no other way),
I picked myself back up (I knew I had to stay).
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.

[Hook]
There ain't no,
Not in the name,
In the name of love.
That way,
There ain't no,
I'm not giving up.

[Bridge]
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 (looked in the mirror).
Looked in the mirror! (looked in the mirror)

[Outro]
By the grace of god (there were no other way),
I picked myself back up (picked myself back up!)
(I knew I had to stay).
I put one foot in front of the other (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.
