Another Monday comes and I just want to breathe
'Cause it's a long, long week for someone wired to please
I keep taking my aim and pushing it higher
Wanna shine bright, even brighter now
Wish I would tell myself

Don't try so hard
God gives you grace and you can't earn it
Don't think that you're not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He's not leaving
He gave you His son so you'd believe it
You're lovely even with your scars
Don't try so hard

Do you remember how the summers felt when we were kids
Oh, we didn't think much about it
We just lived
Taking our time, beautiful leisure
When did start trying to measure up
When and all of this time, love has been trying to tell us

Don't try so hard
God gives you grace and you can't earn it
Stop thinking you're not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He's not leaving
He gave you His son so you'd believe it
You're lovely even with your scars
Don't try so hard
So open up your lovely heart
And dont try so hard
