Walking around with all this pain
I can barley walk straight
I’m trying to carry all this weight
I know its gotta be a better way
I’m trying to figure out my fate
But there’s no fate without out your Grace
Then I fall to my knees and pray
Lord come breathe on me again…

Chrous
Lord breathe on me Lord. Breathe your life in me. Lord breathe on me Lord.Your breathe will set me free. Free from all the pain…

Trouble in my life I can’t explain
But you are there to sustain me
Turning my worries into Faith
With you I’ll make it all the way…

As I grew into the woman I am. The scales fell right from my eyes. I began to see His light. A light that shined on me so bright. And for the first time in my life. I could feel he was by my side. I didn't have to feel I had to fight. I knew this time that it felt right.
Chorus
