There's a tear that's been hanging on for too long
Afraid of the fall it'll take to move on
There's a sinner on the front steps of a little church on main
The whiskey on his breath holds back the prayer he needs to pray
Sometimes, redemption, seems like a mirage in the distance

You can run and try to catch it
You can give up and just forget it
You can hold on for one more day
You're just a breakthrough away

There's a sorry I forgive you just waiting to be said
That could gather up the pieces and make you whole again
There's hope and there's peace, and courage to be found
And the sum of them is greater than the fear holding you down
But sometimes, redemption seems like a mirage in the distance

You can run and try to catch it
You can give up and just forget it
You can hold on for one more day
You're just a breakthrough away oohh

You can run you can try to catch it
You can give up and just forget it
You can hold on for one more day
Hold on for one more day
You're just a breakthrough away
Breakthrough away
