Actress-turned-singer Chrissy Metz's new song "Talking To God" is the first from her upcoming debut album. Listen to it here!

Actress Chrissy Metz released her new song “Talking To God” in early April and now it has an official lyric video to go with it! Written by Nicolette Hayford, Connie Harrington, Jake Mitchell, Ashley McBryde, and Aaron Raitiere, the introspective song is the first taste of Metz’s upcoming debut album.

“‘Talking To God’ is a song about those moments when we ask the questions we desperately want the answers to,” shares Metz. “Whether it’s a lost love or why our own lives look much different than the way we had hoped they would. It’s about those personal prayers and conversations we have while listening and learning to surrender and trust in the bigger picture.”

Metz signed a record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville following her starring role in 20th Century Fox’s Breakthrough movie and soundtrack featuring her performance of the Oscar-nominated, Diane Warren penned track, “I’m Standing With You.” Metz, who has also showcased her vocal abilities as “Kate Pearson” on NBC’s award-winning series This Is Us, calls music her “first love” and is currently hosting a daily Facebook livestream, The Dreamers where she shares her musical journey.

“Talking To God” Lyrics

I was catchin’ up with an old friend
Nothin’ too heavy, just checking in
How’s is goin’, how’s your mama and them
And for once, he talked more than me
Said, I hear a lot about you ’round here
Yeah, I know it’s been one of them years
I get it man, you do the best you can
And still wind up on your knees

I was talkin’ to God last night
About why things happen the way they do
Yeah, and He shed a little light
On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through
Everything under the sun
Why some get it all
And some people fall out of love
I was talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up

It still stings just a little bit
So many things I’d do different
I’m still learning the difference
Between movin’ on and forgiveness

I was talkin’ to God last night
About why things happen the way they do
Yeah, and He shed a little light
On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through
Everything under the sun
Why some get it all
And some people fall out of love
I was talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up
Your name came up

I hope you’re doin’ alright
Hope you’re doin’ just fine
Hope you think about me
Every once in a while

I was talkin’ to God last night
About why things happen the way they do
Yeah, and He shed a little light
On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through
Everything under the sun
Why some get it all
And some people fall out of love
I was talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up

I was talkin’ to God, talkin’ to God last night
Your name came up
