Dear God I've been trying awful hard to make You proud of me But it seems The harder that I try, all the harder it becomes And I feel like giving up Most of the time Dear God I've been chasing their approval and it's killin' me And I know The more I try to prove All the less I have to show And I'm stuck inside my head Most of the time But if I pray a little harder If I follow all the rules I wonder, could I ever be enough? 'Cause I try and try Just to fall back down again And I ask myself why Do I try to chase the wind? I should lean into the mystery Maybe hope is found in a melody So I wanna try again Oh, I'm gonna try again And dear child I hope you know how much I love you and I'm proud of you And please believe The thoughts I have for you will never change or fade away And when you felt like giving up I never did 'Cause I'm not scared of imperfections Or the questions in your head Just know that you have always been enough 'Cause you tried and you tried And I saw you wrestle with Every how, every why I was right there listening So just fall into the mystery And I'll meet you here in the melody Try, just to try again Oh, child would you try again? My child, you can love again
