I tried to do the things in my own way
I tried to do what people say
but I was going nowhere fast
And now I'm turning to you at last

[Chorus]
What do you want me to do
What so you want me to do
What do you want me to do, Lord

I can see the lights of home
But I can't get there on my own
I can see the landing strip
But I need you to guide my ship

[Chorus]

I've been a fool and I've been a clown
I've let the enemy turn me around
I've wasted love and I've wasted time
I've been proud and I've been blind

There's such a lot of things to change
A whole world to arrange
And if you show me how
I'll begin right now

[Chorus]

What do you want me to do, Lord
What do you want me to do, Lord
"Cause I'm listenin'
I'm listenin'
Lord, I'm listenin'
I'm listenin'
