Giving yourself advice you don’t take
Maybe you’re making a big mistake
If you should die before you wake
Pray to the lord your heart he can break

Why don’t you do what you ought
One of these days you’re gonna get caught
Couple of things that can’t be taught
Make your bed and that’s what you bought
Nothing to lose but all that you’ve got

Can’t trust your gut cause your gut can lie
Rock paper scissors make up your mind
Rock will crush you scissors are sharp
Paper will paper will paper will
Paper right over your heart

When will you know you’ve had enough
Of running whenever the going gets tough
Make up a story that fits like a glove
Float like a butterfly sting like a dove
Run like the wind when you know that it’s love
