because of you lyrics – tamia

because of you

[verse 1:]
i’ve had my share of good and bad news
i’ve had to cry when no one else knew
felt all alone like n*body could really understand
but i heard you whisper a sweet melody
said give me your burdens, give them to me
today i stand, lord, stronger and wiser because of you

[chorus:]
because of you
because of you
because of your love and grace and mercy
i’ve made it through
and no i’m not perfect
sometimes i fall
yet, lord, you’ve been there whenever i call
and if anyone asks me how did i make it
it’s because of you

[verse 2:]
strong for my family i have to be
but tell me who’s strong, who’s strong for me
who gives me strength and courage and wisdom to make it through?
but there’s not a friend, no not one
none that can help you, not like the son
if anyone asks me how did i make it
it’s because of you
oh

[chorus:]
it’s because of you
it’s because of you
because of your love and grace and mercy
i’ve made it through
no i’m not perfect
and sometimes i fall
but yet, lord, you’ve been there whenever i call
if anyone asks me how did i make it
if anyone asks me how did i, how did i go through
if anyone asks me how did i make it
if anyone asks me how did i go through
if anyone asks me, tamia, how did you do it?
it’s because of you
