The easy way out: Breaking the habit

August 16, 2009 at 10:42 am Leave a comment

If you’re breaking the habit of taking the easy way out,
Well, dear, you’ve got a long way to go.
Time and again you’ll be tempted to sway
Believe me, that’s one thing I know.

Caught in the wheels of circumstance
You completely forgot how to dance.
Your limbs are rusted, your head is a-tilt
But you’re a flower not ready to wilt.

As your mind opens up and thoughts become clear
You scrape up some courage and start to feel strong
Slowly you begin to let go of the fear
Just for a moment, nothing can go wrong.

Every day’s a new day, a new chance to begin
You wake up, start over, and should your will be thin
Then remember where you came from and where you’ve been
That can help you be strong and not sink in.

Caught in the wheels of circumstance
You completely forgot how to dance.
Your limbs are rusty, your head is a-tilt
But you’re a flower not ready to wilt.

The easy way out was the hardest path to take
but you were blind to the truth at the time
Forgive yourself, move on and have faith
To change direction is the lesser crime.

Caught in the wheels of circumstance
You completely forgot how to dance.
Your limbs are rusty, your head is a-tilt
But you’re a flower not ready to wilt.
