She was only 17
Wild at heart and following her dreams
Believing she was pretty
Got a ticket to the city
Where she'd find her place on the cover of a magazine

It was only a chat room, but it would lead the way
To the door of a man where she'd throw it all away
He said they'd take it slow
But little did she know
She'd be all used up by the end of the day

But she was strong
And she would survive
Ambition would be her drive
And she said...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday, I'll make a way

Where did she go wrong, how did she get here?
Livin' hard and looking older than her years
Miss Little Big Town
Trying to hold a job down
Doing what she could to choke her fears

But she was strong
And she would survive
A spark of hope had kept her dream alive
And she cried...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday, I'll make a way
Someday, I'll make a way

Walking down the road
In the city where she'd come with so much hope
Her vision had long died
Along with all her pride
And she found herself at the end of her rope

But she heard angels through the door
Of a church she'd passed a million times before
There was a song of heaven ringing
And soon she found herself believing
That out there maybe there was something more

So she bowed her head to pray
And said, Jesus, please make a way

And she heard Him say...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though you may not understand
Today, I'll make a way

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah
Today He'll make a way
