I Said I Would


I said that I would

I said that I would heed to the call when I heard it

I said I would do it no matter what

No matter how much fear tried to overwhelm my spirit

No matter how much someone criticized what I am called to do

No matter how much anyone tried to distract me

 

I said that I would

I said that I would be obedient to your will

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said I’d do it even if you took me in a different direction

Even if I didn’t know where I was going

Even if what I started out doing changes

I said that I would continue

 

I said that I would

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said that I would do it even if I saw no end result

That I wouldn’t let my eyes disturb your vision

That I would only listen for the sound of your voice

 

I said that I would

I said that I would keep you first

I said that I wouldn’t get in the way

That I would remain humble to your presence

That I would stay in my place

 

I said that I would…

 

Staying In My Own Lane


I want to sing in my own key

Dance to my own tune

And not hold myself back because of you

I just want to do what feels right to me

 

So many things in life we do because we have to

Wouldn’t it be nice to just do you?

 

I just want to live in my head for a moment

There’s this place in there that’s so free

It allows my body to move however it feels

And it doesn’t care whose looking

 

I  just want to do the things that I can control my way

‘Not caring if I look like I’m crazy because I’m doing me

Because I’m okay with you doing you; however you do you

I  just want to be me

 

I’m talking something deeper than you could ever imagine

I  just want to be the best me that I can be

I want to know who’s around me but I don’t want to care

I  just want to stay in my own lane…
