Wrong Steps

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath.

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath each step.

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath each step.
With little breath kept to breathe that's left.

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath each step.
With little breath left you had once bet,
You'd have enough to get yourself some rest.

Try not to take those wrong steps,
Without choosing from other steps to get better.
To better than the steps you had bet,
Would not catch you out of breath but at rest...
To prove with a doing you could better your best.

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath.

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath each step.
To prove with a doing you could better your best.
Without choosing from other steps to get that rest,
To move those steps better and unchecked.

Try not to make those wrong steps,
To leave alone.
And not to have them condoned.
Try not to make those wrongs steps,
To leave alone and make it known you are gone to move on!

Try not to make those wrong steps,
To leave alone.
Uncondoned.
Try not to make those wrongs steps,
To leave alone and make it known you are gone to move on!
To make it known you are gone to move on!
To make it known you are gone to move on!

Try not to take those wrong steps,
You find catches you out of breath.
You find catches you out of breath each step.
To leave you without rest to get.
Only choose those steps to better your best yet.
