Glorious Lyrics

on Amazon Music

You know I'm back like I never left
Another sprint, another step
Another day, another breath
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind
Seek and I find I can sleep...

    I think that this song is very heartwarming and has a very strong idea. I love the idea of him picking up his grandmother for the day, and doing "it all." It also has an amazing,message
    to live your life as long as possible. And feeling "GLORIOUS" while living it!

    I think it is about how he loves his grandmother so much and always wants to be by her side

    This song makes me think about how this person wants to keep going in what they are doing. They want to keep going, they track their pace and just continue to get through the game of life because in this game you only have one life so we have to make it count. Once you end that life, it’s game over and there is no resetting or going back to change your decisions.

    I see it as he went through a rough period with drugs and drinking and went to a very low place in his life. He was cheating and generally being an ahole and he made it through that, He went through a very dark time when he couldnt see the dawn, and he is past it and can see the brightness and is happy in his life now and knows he can handle what comes next.

    Really it is a song about why you do something even though you may stop what you love but you end up coming back to the thing you do because it's who you are. Like for me I do basketball and you think about just giving up but then you find the motivation,the fire again and you feel like you can do anything. However nothing can be achieved without God.

    I think he is trying to slowly show his faith because he believes in Jesus and wants to make a difference in the world because he knows the world is not our home

    I think he has faith in afterlife. and he has renewed hope for this life. (not a bible-beater yet, by any stretch, but may be thirsting for something greater than what this world offers) #GODISGOOD (i don't even know what a hashtag means)

    In my opinion if you actually watch the official video it actually shows a older lady named helen. It also appears that his grandmother was dead.

    Ths song talks all about when he dies what is going to happen. It talks about his faith.

    Think it means it was when he found life is short but can be fun um or idk.
