I can try to write my story
Or I can watch it all unfold
Live within the lines to this town
And be so predictable
I can meet some expectations
Or if you try to push, I pull
But I think I'll take the long way

And there ain't nothing wrong with goin' against the grain
I don't need a plan this time
I'll take it by the day
And every little step I take will be a step of faith
I'm goin' against the grain, yeah yeah
I'm goin' against the grain

We can go our separate ways
And meet in the exact same place
Maybe what is good for you
Is just no good for me
Bein' on a different page
Don't mean we can't feel the same
'Coz you know I'll take the long way

And there ain't nothing wrong with goin' against the grain
I don't need a plan this time
I'll take it by the day
And every little step I take will be a step of faith
I'm goin' against the grain, yeah yeah
I'm goin' against the grain, yeah yeah

And there ain't nothing wrong with goin' against the grain
I don't need a plan this time
I'll take it by the day
And every little step I take will be a step of faith
I'm goin' against the grain, yeah yeah

And there ain't nothing wrong with goin' against the grain
No, I don't need a plan this time
I'll take it by the day
And every little step I take will be a step of faith
I'm goin' against the grain, yeah yeah
Goin' against the grain, yeah

I can try to write my story
Or I can watch it all unfold
Live within the lines to this town
Baby, bet you know I won't
