Next Right Thing

 

I woke up this morning

Do the next right thing

Went and took a shower

Do the next right thing

Put on my clothes

Do the next right thing

Had devotion for half an hour

Do the next right thing

Got in my car to go to work

If I killed myself who would it hurt

Run my car right off the road

Slam it right into a pole

But instead in just keep straight

Got this voice tell me to wait

Got more to live for so please just think

And do the next right thing

 

Drip, drip

It’s inherent in my bloodline

To do the wrong thing at the wrong time

I’m not just fighting what’s in my mind

But what my family left behind

Baaaaad blood

And bad expressions of love

It started somewhere way back when

And it’s been affecting all my kin

An upward climb is all it’s been

So Lord please grant me real thick skin

I won’t give up, and won’t give in

Don’t want to lose, I want to win

So I’ll rehearse what you have told me

Though it’s hard you’re there to hold me

And through the tears I see you show me

To live one day at a time

Won’t let this moment pass me by

Won’t let this pain do me in

Nothing to gain if I give in

You encourage me because you know me

To do the next right thing

 

As he walks on by I

Do the next right thing

I really want to say Hi I

Do the next right thing

I need to leave him alone and

Do the next right thing

So I just go home and

Do the next right thing

I could wallow under the sheets

Do I need a man to feel complete?

Looking for loving and feeling weak

But don’t want my value to be sold cheap

So I just turn over and go to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep

And if I’m alive when I awake

I’ll do the next right thing

 

Drip, drip

It’s inherent in my bloodline

To do the wrong thing at the wrong time

I’m not just fighting what’s in my mind

But what my family left behind

Baaaaad blood

And bad expressions of love

It started somewhere way back when

And it’s been affecting all my kin

An upward climb is all it’s been

So Lord please grant me real thick skin

I won’t give up, and won’t give in

Don’t want to lose, I want to win

So I’ll rehearse what you have told me

Though it’s hard you’re there to hold me

And through the tears I see you show me

To live one day at a time

Won’t let this moment pass me by

Won’t let this pain do me in

Nothing to gain if I give in

You encourage me because you know me

To do the next right thing

 

I arrived at my job

Do the next right thing

I think its run by the mob

Do the next right thing

Still I sit down at my desk

And I try to do my best

I pray to God to give me rest to

Do the next right thing

I leave my job and head on home

Do the next right thing

But at home I feel alone

Do the next right thing

So why not hang out all night

Do the next right thing

Do things to do my body right

Do the next right thing

Although I’m not pleased with all my life

I know rebellion is just all hype

It will take you up and slam you right

Down on your face and you won’t like

How you’ll end up, not worth the fight

Not worth the fuss, so I leave it alone

And just go home

I just go home and

Do the next right thing

 

Drip, drip

It’s inherent in my bloodline

To do the wrong thing at the wrong time

I’m not just fighting what’s in my mind

But what my family left behind

Baaaaad blood

And bad expressions of love

It started somewhere way back when

And it’s been affecting all my kin

An upward climb is all it’s been

So Lord please grant me real thick skin

I won’t give up, and won’t give in

Don’t want to lose, I want to win

So I’ll rehearse what you have told me

Though it’s hard you’re there to hold me

And through the tears I see you show me

To live one day at a time

Won’t let this moment pass me by

Won’t let this pain do me in

Nothing to gain if I give in

You encourage me because you know me

To do the next right thing
