Something new is growing
Here inside of me
I'm just trying to figure out

This is quite a life you've
Laid here in front of me
And I'm just dying to get out

If you can't use it
Please don't abuse it
Save yourself the trouble just throw it out

'Cause we don't want this now
These walls are haunted
There's nothing here but gloom and doubt

There was a time when I thought I had been saved by grace
There was a time...not this time
And I locked the bathroom door and I began to pace
And I watched grace pass me by

If you can't use it
Don't you dare abuse it
Save yourself the trouble just throw it out

'Cause you don't want this now
These walls are haunted
There's nothing here but gloom and doubt

There was a time when I thought I had been saved by grace
There was a time...it's not this time
No No

But who's to say that it's something you cannot replace
And I watched grace pass me by

There was a time when I thought I had been saved by grace
There was a time...but it's not our time
No No

And I locked the bathroom door and I began to pace
And I watched grace pass me by
And I said goodbye
I said goodbye

'Cause we don't want this
We don't want this now
We don't want it
Let's just throw it out

You don't need this
You said you don't need this right now
You don't need it just throw it out

You don't want this
You don't want it
You don't want it
Just throw it out
Oh

You don't need this
Well you say you don't need this right now
Well you can't feed it
Just throw it out

Oh
You can't feed it
Just throw it out

You can't feed it

    General CommentSounds like the speaker is sifting through new issues in life, where ordinarily she was able to deal through it on her own. But now, she's sensing that grace (whether religiously, from God, or rediscovering her own inner strength) is something that she could really use. She's taken it for granted in times before ("well you say you don't need this right now, just throw it out"; "i watched grace pass me by"). She also realizes the limitations she has in adding to this grace ("you can't feed it"). And as she's pacing back and forth on the bathroom floor, ruminating, that's when grace is likely to appear.
