When I was 16 I knew everything
Opportunity grew on trees
I taste 'em, waste 'em
And do it all again

10 feet tall, invincible, I fell short on principle
A rebellion, a hellion
Yeah, that was me back then

Burned by my mistakes
A phoenix I rose from the flames, now I'm

(Chorus:)
Doin' it right, I saw the light
Sun came up in, The middle of the night
Been doing' it wrong for so long
I sure oughta know what it finally feels like to be
Doin' it right, doin' it, doin' it
Doin' it right

When this fool came tumblin' down
180 degree turn around
Revelation, salvation
Made me what I am

Every day I fight the war
And each day I'm winnin' more, yeah, 'cause I'm

(Chorus:)
Doin' it right, I saw the light
Sun came up in, The middle of the night
Been doing' it wrong for so long
I sure oughta know what it finally feels like to be
Doin' it right, doin' it, doin' it
Doin' it right

(Bridge:)
Every now and then I'm tempted
I don't jump the fences, no, I keep

(Chorus:)
Doin' it right, I saw the light
Sun came up in, The middle of the night
Been doing' it wrong for so long
I sure oughta know what it finally feels like to be
Doin' it right, doin' it, doin' it, a doin' it,

Doin' it right, I saw the light
Sun came up in, The middle of the night
Been doing' it wrong for so long
I sure oughta know what it finally feels like
I sure oughta know what it finally feels like
I sure oughta know what it finally feels like to be
Doin' it right, doin' it, doin' it
Doin' it right
