God Knows

God knows you ain't pretty,

God knows it's true.

God knows there ain't anybody

Ever gonna take the place of you.

.

God knows it's a struggle,

God knows it's a crime,

God knows there's gonna be no more water

But fire next time.

.

Bridge #1:

God didn't call it treason,

God didn't call it wrong,

It was supposed to last a season

But it's been so strong for so long.

.

God knows it's fragile,

God knows everything,

God knows it could snap apart right now

Just like putting scissors to a string.

.

Bridge #2:

God knows it's terrifying,

God sees it all unfold,

There's a million reasons for you to be crying

You been so bold and so cold.

.

God knows that when you see it,

God knows you've got to weep,

God knows the secrets of your heart,

He'll tell them to you when you're asleep.

.

God knows there's a river,

God knows how to make it flow,

God knows you ain't gonna be taking

Nothing with you when you go.

.

God knows there's a purpose,

God knows there's a chance,

God knows you can rise above the darkest hour

Of any circumstance.

.

God knows there's a heaven,

God knows it's out of sight,

God knows we can get all the way from here to there

Even if we've got to walk a million miles by candlelight.
