01. On My Own

BarlowGirl
by BarlowGirl



 

I can’t believe that I’m here in this place again
How did I manage to mess up one more time?
This pattern seems to be the story of my life
Should have learned this lesson by the thousandth time

‘Cause I promised myself I wouldn’t fall
But here I’ve fallen
I guess I’m not as strong as I thought
All I can do is cry to You

Oh God You have to save me
You’re my last and only hope
All my right answers fail me
I can’t seem to make it on my own

I always thought that I would be strong enough
What made all of them fall couldn’t take me down
Yeah, did I think that I was above it all
I have learned that pride comes before the fall

I can’t promise that I won’t fall
‘Cause here I’ve fallen
I know I’m not as strong as I thought
All I can do is cry to You

Behind the Song:
'We based the song around a line that says, How did I manage to mess up one more time? We can all relate to the feeling of, “God we try so hard but it seems like no matter what we do, we’re messing up again.” And, so the cry of the chorus—God, you have to save me, you’re my last and only hope. My right answers fail me. Being “good Christian girls” we always felt like we had the “right” answers for everything, and as we have gotten older, we realize the “right” answers are not going to help us. They don’t change your heart or make you a better person—our only hope is in God changing our hearts.' - Becca Barlow (BarlowGirl)
