How did it all go so wrong?
What once was a happy tune, now a mournful song
On top of the world one day, you were
The next, sitting slumped and unsure.
How does it go so quickly from this to that?
Now you’re wearing a different hat.
Turning away on the path as you slid back
to the old ways, down that same old track
A life known so abundantly
Gone in a flash so rapidly
Where freedom stood, now filled with chains
Addiction and seven others now remains
And though you’re gripped so tightly
You still have the chance to live up rightly
The ball is in your court, only in your hands
Your surrender, is all the King demands
Lift that heavy, weary foot
Walk to the altar, lay down every root
And again your house can be swept clean
And his promises and blessings will you glean.
