I've achieved so much in life,
But I'm an amateur in love
My bank account is doing just fine
But my emotions are bankrupt

My body is nice and strong
But my heart is in a million pieces
When the sun is shining so am I
But when night falls, so do my tears

Sometimes the beat is so loud in my heart
That I can barely tell our voices apart
Sometimes the fear is so loud in my head
That I can barely hear what God says

But then I hear a whisper that this too shall pass
I hear the angels whisper that this too shall pass
My ancestors whisper that this day will one day be the past
So I walk in faith that this too shall pass

The one that loved me the most
Turned around and hurt me the worst
Been doing my best to move on
But the pain just keeps singing me songs

My head and my heart are at war
Cause love ain't happening the way I want it
Feel like I'm about to break down
Can't hear the light at the end of the tunnel
Is when I pray for healing in my heart
To be put back together what is torn apart
And I pray for quiet in my head
That I can hear clearly what GOD says
But then I hear a whisper that this too shall pass
I hear the angels whisper that this too shall pass
My ancestors whisper that this day will one day be the past
So I walk in faith that this too shall pass

All of a sudden I realized
That it only hurts worst to fight it
So I embrace my shadow and hold on to the morning light

This too shall pass

I hear the angels whisper that trouble don't have to last always
I hear the angels whisper even the day after tomorrow will one day be yesterday
I hear my angels whisper
I hear my angels whisper
This too shall pass
