It’s OK, I’ll do what I want
If I choose, I can take the fall
There’s a choice
It’s my destiny
In my hands
yeah it’s up to me
I can drive
I can shoot a gun in the streets
score me some heroin
I can jump
Be the sacrifice
Bear the cross just like Jesus Christ
And I don’t wanna hear
What love can do
No, I ain’t gonna tell ya
what’s right for you
Is It right to take the easy way
Close your eyes
Get on your knees and pray
Now you’re saved by a higher voice
Givin’ up, givin’ up, givin’ up your choice
If I’m wrong, then I’ll pay for it
If I’m right, yeah you’re gonna hear about it
But I’ve tried, yeah I’ve tried for it
I’ll try, I’ll try ’til I’m satisfied
And I…
I’m tired of hearing what love can do
And I…
Ain’t gonna tell you what’s right for you
I’ve seen the damage done
Yeah I heard the shotgun
Don’t stop the setting sun on my kingdom come
Ohhh…
Is it right to take the easy way
I don’t know, I get down on my knees and pray
Now I’m saved by a higher voice
Givin’ up, givin’ up, givin’ up my choice
If I’m wrong, hey, they’ll pay for it
If I’m right, yeah
Your gonna deal with it
’cause I tried, yeah, I tried for it
I’ll try, I’ll try, even die for it
No I…
Don’t wanna hear what love can do
No I…
I can’t tell ya what’s right for you
Oh I…I…I…
Tell you what love can do
No I…I…I…
Can’t say but your time is through
I’ve seen the damage done
Oh, Lord, I heard the shotgun
I fought the setting sun
On my kingdom come
Ohhh…
Don’t tell me what love can do
Hey, hey, hey
Don’t tell me what love can do
Hey, hey, hey
