Switchfoot – THE STRENGTH TO LET GO lyrics

[Verse 1]
I don’t like to admit
When I’m wrong and need gifts
Of forgiveness instead of applause
I was dying to prove to myself
I could make it alone
It took years to confess
That your love was the best
At unraveling all of my pride
Had to laugh at myself
When I realized that you were my home

[Chorus 1]

Give me the strength to let go

Give me the strength to surrender

Give me the strength to stop holding on

I’ve been holding on so long

Give me the strength to let go

And show me the way to come home

[Verse 2]

Yeah I’m stubborn and bold

But sometimes it gets old

Fighting voices inside of my brain

I was trying to pretend I was fine

When inside it was war

With the stumbling beat

Of my heart and my feet

And the faults of my failure and pain

To think all of this time

I had wings that were ready to soar

[Chorus 2]

Give me the strength to let go

Oh love, light the way home

Light up my soul

I choose mercy instead of control

My life is on loan

Forgive and let go

I embrace a belief I don’t know

What a beautiful sound

To lay your life down

Your forgiveness is where I am found

Here in your arms

I finally let down

I am lightning and you are the ground

Give me the strength to let go

I am lightning and you are the ground
