Who Makes The Rules Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

Well, Ive been watching us very close
And I guess the one thing thats been bothering me the most
Is when I see us playing by the same rules that the world is using

Well, Ive been listening to the things that we say
And I, I hear us mention words like fortune and fame
And it makes me wonder if were sure about the side were choosing
Thats why Im asking you

Who makes the rules for me and you?
When its wrong or right, is it black and white?
Who makes the rules for me and you?
Its our life at stake so we better know who makes the rules
Yeah, who makes the rules?

When I see people just like you and me
Trying to live out the pictures they see on TV
Gotta have a new car, new clothes, new love
When they get tired of trying

Well, Ive been reading bout a different way
Talking bout dying to live and losing to gain
Seems like somebodys telling us the truth and somebodys lying
I wanna know who

Tell me, who makes the rules for me and you?
When its wrong or right, is it black and white?
Who makes the rules for me and you?
Its our life at stake so we better know who makes the rules yeah

Two voices are calling out to you
Youre serving the one youre listening to
So, tell me who, somebody tell me who

Who makes the rules?
Who makes the rules?

Who makes the rules for me and you?
When its wrong or right is it black and white?
Who makes the rules for me and you?
Its our life at stake so we better let Jesus make the rules yeah oh
Oh yeah make the rules, makes the rules yeah
