It's okay, I'll do what I want if I choose
I can take the fall, there's a choice
It's my destiny in my hands
Yeah, it's up to me

I can drive, I can shoot a gun in the streets
Score me some heroin
I can jump, be the sacrifice
Bear the cross just like Jesus Christ

And I don't wanna hear what love can do
No, I ain't gonna tell you what's right for you

Is it right to take the easy way?
Close your eyes, get on your knees and pray
Now you're saved by a higher voice
Givin' up, givin' up, givin' up your choice

If I'm wrong, then I'll pay for it
If I'm right, yeah you're gonna hear about it
But I'll try, yeah I'll try for it
I'll try and I'll try, till I'm satisfied

And I, I'm tired of hearin' what love can do
And I, ain't gonna tell you what's right for you

I've seen the damage done
Yeah, I heard the shotgun
And felt the settin' sun on my kingdom come

Is it right, uh, to take the easy way?
I don't know, I get down on my knees and pray
Now I'm saved by a higher voice
Givin' up, givin' up, givin' up my choice

If I'm wrong, hey! Then I'll pay for it
If I'm right, yeah, you're gonna deal with it
'Cause I'll try, yeah I'll try for it
I'll try and I'll cry, even die for it

No, I don't wanna hear what love can do
No, I, I can't tell you what's right for you
Oh, I, I, I tell you what love can do
No, I, I, I can't say when your time is through

I've seen the damage done
Oh Lord, I heard the shotgun
I felt the settin' sun on my kingdom come, no

Don't tell me what love can do, uh
Hey hey hey, uh, hey hey hey hey
Don't tell me what love can do, alright
Hey hey hey, what love can do
