Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do)
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, I'll try, till I'm satisfied

And I
I'm tired of hearing what love can do
And I
Ain't gonna tell you what's right for you

I've seen the damage done
Oh, I've heard the shotgun
And fought the setting sun on my kingdom come, oh

Is it right
To take the easy way? I don't know
I get on my knees an' 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, 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'll never tell you what love can do
No I, I
Can't say but your time is through

I've seen the damage done
Oh Lord, I've heard the shotgun
I fought the setting sun on my kingdom come, oh

Oh, hey, hey, hey

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