Cory Asbury – Dear God Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Dear God
I’ve been trying awful hard to make You proud of me
But it seems
The harder that I try or the harder it becomes
And I feel like giving up
Most of the time

[Verse 2]
Dear God
I’ve been chasing their approval and it’s killin’ me
And I know
The more I to try to prove
Or the less I have to show
And I’m stuck inside my head
Most of the time

[Pre-Chorus]
But If I pray a little harder
If I follow all the rules
I wonder could I ever be enough

[Chorus]
‘Cause I try and try (Try and try)
Just to fall back down again
And I ask myself why (Ask, why)
Do I try to chase the wind?
I just lean into the mystery
Maybe hope is found in a melody
So I wanna try again
Oh, I’m gonna try again

[Verse 3]
And dear child
I hope you know how much I love you and I’m proud of you
And please believe
The thoughts I have for you will never change or fade away
And when you felt like giving up
I never did

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I’m not scared of imperfections
Or the questions in your head
Just know that you have always been enough

[Chorus]
‘Cause you tried and you tried (Tried and tried)
And I saw you wrestle with
Every how, every why (Every how, every why)
I was right there listening
So just fall into the mystery
I’ll meet you in the melody
So please try just to try again
Oh child would you try again
My child you can love again

[Break]
Oh, oh, oh
Hey, hey, hey

[Guitar Solo]

August Alsina – Fly Far Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Somebody told me if you wanna make a difference
You must first do somethin’ different
Try different levels, try to be somethin’ special
Grind and be somethin’ greater than what these haters projected
Grow to be somethin’ bigger and better than they expected
Pushin’ it to the limit, seem like the money infinite
New spendin’ habits, used to not havin’ to spend it with
When you ain’t got it, ain’t got nobody to struggle with
Lost some friends and relationships

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe if I
Knew better, I would do better
Find a family and make my crew better
Instead of givin’ loyalty to whoever
Tired of dealin’ with the hurt

[Chorus]
Dear God, make me a bird
So I can fly far
Fly far
Far, far away from here
Dear God, make me a bird
So I can fly far
Fly far
Far, far away from here
Far, far away from here

[Verse 2]
Take me away because they don’t want me to say this
Keep the love and take all the hatred
Give me courage to take it further
Guess I shouldn’t complain ’cause I made it further than they did
Young man, I’m just a young man
Workin’ every day to do what I can
Lord, why’d you have to put me on this island?
I’m really hopin’ you would chime in

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe if I
Knew better, I would do better
Find a family and make my crew better
Instead of givin’ loyalty to whoever
Tired of dealin’ with the hurt

[Chorus]
Dear God, make me a bird
So I can fly far
Fly far
Far, far away from here
Dear God, make me a bird
So I can fly far
Fly far
Far, far away from here
Far, far away from here

[Bridge]
Can you take me away?
Far, far away
Far, far away
Far, far away
Far, far away
Can you take me away?
Far, far away
Far, far away
Far, far away

[Chorus]
Dear God, make me a bird (Can you take me away?)
So I can fly far
Fly far
Far, far away from here
Dear God make me a bird (Can you take me away?)
So I can fly far
Fly far
Far, far away from here
Far, far away from here
