Anointed – Do lyrics

Alright, oh yeah
There is a war inside
Between my spirit and mind
I sit here wondering "why oh why"
I find myself confused
Emotions on the loose
I know what's right
But it's often the wrong I choose
Shoulda done it your way, but just like a child
I'm losing my direction, I need you to guide me
Turn me into someone that's faithful and true
Give me the strength to live my life for you.
Tell me why I do what I don't wanna do
And I don't do what I wanna do
Tell me why I do what I don't wanna do.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah
I live a double life
Sometimes I compromise
I feel ashamed of the way my heart looks inside
And though I long to obey
Sometimes I drift away
And take for granted your never-ending grace
Help me to remember your love for me
Take me to the river, wash me in your mercy
You're the father of forgiveness time after time
But still there's something messing with my mind
Rept cho
Do what I don't wanna do
Tell me why I do what I don't wanna do.
