Lyrics to song By the Grace of god by Katy Perry

Verse 1:
Was 27, surviving my return of Saturn
A long vacation didn't sound so bad
Was full of secrets, locked up tight like Iron Mountain
Running on empty, so out of gas

Pre-Chorus 1:
Thought I wasn't enough
Found I wasn't so tough
Laying on the bathroom floor
We were living on a fault line
And I felt the fault was all mine
Couldn't take it anymore

Chorus:
By the grace of God
(There was no other way)
I picked myself back up
(I knew I had to stay)
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror
And decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me out that way

Verse 2:
I thank my sister for keeping my head above the water
When the truth was like swallowing sand
Now every morning there is no more mourning
Oh, I can finally see myself again

Pre-Chorus 2:
I know I am enough
Possible to be loved
It was not about me
Now I have to rise above
Let the Universe call the bluff
Yeah, the truth will set you free

Chorus:
By the grace of God
(There was no other way)
I picked myself back up
(I knew I had to stay)
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror
And decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me out

Bridge:
Oh, that way, no
That way, no
Not in the name of love (In the name of love)
That way, no
That way, no
I am not giving up

Breakdown:
By the grace of God
I picked myself back up
I put one foot in front of the other
And I looked in the mirror (Looked in the mirror)
Looked in the mirror (Looked in the mirror)

Chorus:
By the grace of God (By the grace of God)
(There was no other way)
I picked myself back up (Picked myself back up)
(I knew I had to stay)
I put one foot in front of the other and I (In front of the other)
Looked in the mirror and decided to stay
Wasn't gonna let love take me out that way
