Why do we fall?
The war is all up in my head
I’m doing wrong
But I can’t stop it
I’ll still pray after, right?
All in my head
Things I would get my mouth washed for
Are things I’m thinking of
On good days
I say to myself
I can’t be tempted more than I can bear
So why do I still fall?
My body craves what isn’t right
I just came to terms with ‘flesh’
My mind’s actively working against your words
I know, but I can’t stop it
When I fast forward to the sex scene
When I let my mind wander away
I still hear your voice,
But I choose to ignore
This nagging feeling I get when the day is over
Is worth doing all the bad I did
Or isn’t it?
When I can’t get my thoughts right
At night I’m contemplating falling on my knees
Or giving up on you
Why does it still feel like I’ll fall tomorrow?
I know I’ll fall everyday
Till I let my mind be anew everyday
Till I consciously make my decisions
Till I don’t let my body’s cravings get to me
If I don’t put you first;
Learn to put my burdens on you
Learn to think happy thoughts where your peace precedes
I won’t fall
Because I’ll learn to love you
And because I love you,
I’ll fear you and do what’s right.
