• MercyMe - Dear Younger Me Lyrics

    From the album Welcome To The New

    Dear younger me
    Where do I start
    If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
    Then you could be
    One step ahead
    Of all the painful memories still running through my head
    I wonder how much different things would be
    Dear younger me

    Dear younger me
    I cannot decide
    Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
    Or do I go deep
    And try to change
    The choices that you'll make ‘cause they're choices that made me
    Even though I love this crazy life
    Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
    Dear younger me

    If I knew then what I know now
    Condemnation would've had no power
    My joy my pain would've never been my worth
    If I knew then what I know now
    Would've not been hard to figure out
    What I would've changed if I had heard

    Dear younger me
    It's not your fault
    You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
    Dear younger me

    You are holy
    You are righteous
    You are one of the redeemed
    Set apart
    A brand new heart
    You are free indeed

    Every mountain every valley
    Through each heartache you will see
    Every moment brings you closer
    To who you were meant to be
    Dear younger me
