Lyrics

Verse 1
Painted toes in Missouri mud, three years old, sweet and tough
She loves to kick off her shoes and twirl around in her tutu
But she ain’t afraid to take a swing when her brother calls her names, fire & grace

Verse 2
High school now, 17, lunchroom talk can get real mean
She stands up, in between the new girl and Homecoming queen
Hugs the girl, says come with me, and wipes her tear away, fire & grace

Chorus
Well she loves with wild abandon, but she ain’t afraid to fight
And she’ll take what life gives her, all the beauty and sacrifice
She’s always had what it takes, fire & grace

Verse 3
Busy mom who works two jobs, in overdrive from dusk till dawn
Bills & deadlines piling up, thinks to herself I’ve had enough
But she can see the hope and meaning in her daughter’s face, fire & grace

Chorus
Well she loves with wild abandon, but she ain’t afraid to fight
And she’ll take what life gives her, all the beauty and sacrifice
She’s always had what it takes, fire & grace

Bridge
Life is tough, it’s full of turns, but no matter where it takes her
She’s hangin’ on, ready for the curves
But she knows where she came from and prays that when the day is done
She will always be that little girl
Painted toes in Missouri mud, three years old, sweet & tough

Chorus
Well she loves with wild abandon, but she ain’t afraid to fight
And she’ll take what life gives her, all the beauty and sacrifice
She’s always had what it takes
She’s always had what it takes, fire & grace
