I've never seen so clearly,
'Cause I was focused on all the wrong things,
An anger building up inside of me,
I was drowning in a deep, dark sea

Of guilt and shame, and self-regret,
I thank the Lord that I'm not dead yet.
A life of sin and whiskey breath,
My body's tired and I'm over it.

It's time for me to be,
The best that I can be,
Things won't stay the same,
'Cause I need to make this change.
I'm content, and I'm finally letting go.

My baby left me with a heartache,
With empty hands and a feeling I can't shake.
They said, "you can't save a sinking ship,"
All she could do was abandon it.

Let's chalk it up to a summer fling,
That lasted longer than I ever could've dreamed.
I pray the Lord my soul to take,
And beg forgiveness as I run towards the Pearly Gates.

It's time for me to be,
The best that I can be.
Things won't stay the same,
'Cause I need to make this change.
I'm content, and I'm finally letting go.

When I couldn't be, what you wanted me to be,
Needed a change, but couldn't find the words to say,
I'm letting you go, so your, your fragile heart can grow,
If it was meant to be, we'll have to wait and see.
