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
Oh the less I have to show
And I’m stuck inside my head
Most of the time

Pre Chorus 1

But if I pray a little harder
If I follow all the rules
I wonder could I ever be enough

Chorus 1

‘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
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 2

'Cause 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
