Dear God
To Love a Fool


Verse 1

Dear God, I’ve been trying awful hard to make You proud of me

But it seems the harder that I try, 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 killing me

And I know the more I try to prove 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

Just to fall back down again

And I ask myself why

Do I try to chase the wind

I should lean into the mystery

Maybe hope is found in a melody

So I wanna try again

Oh, I’m gonna try again

 

Verse 3

Dear child, I hope you know how much I love you and I’m proud of you

Please believe the thoughts I have for you will never change or fade away

When you felt like giving up

I never did

 

Pre Chorus 2

I’m not scared of imperfections

Or the questions in your head

Just know that you have always been enough

 

Chorus 2

‘Cause you tried and tried

And I saw you wrestle with

Every how, every why

I was right there listening

So just fall into the mystery

And I’ll meet you here in the melody

Try just to try again

Oh child would you try again

My child you can love again

X

We'd Love to Stay Connected with You.
