I've got this passion
It's something I can't describe
It's so electric
It's like I've just come alive

I feel this freedom
Now that my past is erased
I feel the healing
I've found the meaning of grace
(I've found grace)

If only you could see me yesterday
Who I used to be before the change
You'd see a broken heart
You'd see the battle scars

Funny how words can't explain
How good it feels to finally break the chains
I'm not what I have done
I'm what I've overcome

I know I stumble
I know I still face defeat
These second-chances
Will define me

So I'm moving forward
I'm standing on my two feet
I've got momentum
Got someone saving me
(Got someone saving me)

If only you could see me yesterday
Who I used to be before the change
You'd see a broken heart
You'd see the battle scars

It's funny how words can't explain
How good it feels to finally break the chains
I'm not what I have done
I'm what I've overcome

I'll make mistakes
And I might fall
But I won't break
I've got someone saving me

If only you could see me yesterday
Who I used to be before the change
You'd see a broken heart
You'd see the battle scars

It's funny how words can't explain
How good it feels to finally break the chains
I'm not what I have done
I'm what I've overcome

I'm what I've overcome
I'm what I've overcome
