The Way I Now Do

I will not chase someone who runs away.
Or give a thought to disobey my Maker...
Not today!
No,
Not today.

If anybody wants to stray...
It's okay.
My faith keeps me strong,
And deep in beliefs that pleases.

I've knocked around with rocks a lot.
Thinking that was my destiny.
I had to shake away from that kind of rot.
It brought me nothing but misery,
To grieve.

I gave up my craving for waste.
And a taste for madness that I came to hate.
I couldn't appreciate myself...
The way I now do.

I couldn't appreciate myself...
The way I now do.

In the way...
I now do!
