He-hey, he-hey, oh
Oh yeah
Well, all right
He-hey

What is this feeling coming over me?
I'm taken back in disbelief
Is this really me, ha, in the mirror I see
Staring back at me?
Could it be? A new reflection of a woman complete

All of a sudden I'm so carefree (well, all right)
'Cause love is doing something strange to me (well, all right)
Got a new flame, ha, haven't been the same
Something in me's changed, rearranged
And I feel that I've been saved

You got me feeling like you're that something I've been missing
Everything's heaven 'cause life with you has been a blessing

(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
I got it bad in a serious way, oh yeah
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Your love has brought me to a higher place, oh yeah
(Who knew, who knew)
It'd be you to restore my faith?
Everyday, I'm amazed
And it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray
Said, it makes me wanna get down and pray
Yeah, hey

I've kept some company I shouldn't have (well, all right)
Made some mistakes, but that's in the past (well, all right)
I'm professing here to you
Proof that I am through

I'm coming clean
Now I can breathe
And I finally believe, yeah

You got me thinking I'll be all right, and you're the reason
Oh, I can feel it: we're moving in a new direction

(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
I got it bad in a serious way, oh yeah
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Your love has brought me into a higher place, oh yeah
(Who knew, who knew)
It'd be you to restore my faith?
Everyday, I'm amazed
And it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray
Said, it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray

Oh
Where would I be, where would I be
Without you by my side?
Where would I be, where would I be
Without you standing by?

Makes me wanna (pray)
Makes me need to (pray)
When I'm feeling low and all alone
You're the light in my day, yeah

(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
I got it bad in a serious way, oh yeah
(Oh-oh, oh-oh)
Your love has brought me into a higher place, oh yeah
(Who knew, who knew)
It'd be you to restore my faith?
Everyday, I'm amazed
'Cause it makes me wanna get down and pray
'Cause it makes me wanna get down and pray
Makes me wanna get down and pray

Woo, thank you father!

Wanna lift my hands up and pray
'Cause every time I'm hearing your name
Wanna reach out and rejoice
Sound of your voice, yeah

Hey, yeah
All right
That's it
