God, help me get away

Break the chains and set me free

From the other side of me

I am my own worst enemy

 

I caught a glimpse in my rearview mirror

Of an old familiar face

Blurry image coming in clearer

Of a past I can’t erase

I could’ve sworn I put him in the ground

But looks like he’s found his way out

 

CHORUS:

God, help me get away

Break the chains and set me free

From the other side of me

I can’t fight this fight alone

I’ll never make it on my own

Lord Jesus, rescue me

From my own worst enemy

 

I’ll take a step and it’s right behind me

Always fighting for control

There’s a war that’s raging inside me

I feel the battle for my soul

It’s like my shadow is dragging me around

And You are my only way out

 

CHORUS:

God, help me get away

Break the chains and set me free

From the other side of me

I can’t fight this fight alone

I’ll never make it on my own

Lord Jesus, rescue me

From my own worst enemy

 

Lord, help me feed the life I’m trying to live

And starve the life I’m trying to leave

Help me believe the old is dead and gone

And I am a new creation

 

CHORUS:

God, help me get away

Break the chains and set me free

From the other side of me

I can’t fight this fight alone

I’ll never make it on my own

Lord Jesus, rescue me

From my own worst enemy [x2]
