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
(1) 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
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 [Repeat (1)] 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'
