Choices

Album: The Cold Hard Truth (1999)
  • I've had choices
    Since the day that I was born
    There were voices
    That told me right from wrong
    If I had listened
    No I wouldn't be here today
    Living and dying
    With the choices I made

    I was tempted
    By an early age I found
    I liked drinkin'
    Oh, and I never turned it down
    There were loved ones
    But I turned them all away
    Now I'm living and dying
    With the choices I made

    I've had choices
    Since the day that I was born
    There were voices
    That told me right from wrong
    If I had listened
    No I wouldn't be here today
    Living and dying
    With the choices I made

    I guess I'm payin'
    For the things that I have done
    If I could go back
    Oh, Lord knows I'd run
    But I'm still losin'
    This game of life I play
    Living and dying
    With the choices I made

    I've had choices
    Since the day that I was born
    There were voices
    That told me right from wrong
    If I had listened
    No I wouldn't be here today
    Living and dying
    With the choices I made

    Living and dying
    With the choices I made Writer/s: Billy Wayne Yates, Michael Curtis
