The Next Right Thing

The Next Right Thing

They say hopeless romantics, go down like the titanic
But my love is gigantic and i don't wanna make it quit
Love is like a fine wine, doesn't have a time line
I've been climbing up that grapevine till i found where man fits
I've tried to pick and choose, sometimes i win, sometimes i loose
But i can't go wrong, doing the next right thing

I tangled with some titans, done my share of fightin'
But i have been enlightened learned a few facts of life
I don't swear this small stuff, don't use a driver in the rough
I don't make remarks off of the cuff and bring my bacon home to the wife
I've tried to pick and choose, sometimes i win, sometimes i loose
But i can't go wrong, doing the next right thing
Doing the next right thing, yeah, yeah

I may stumble i may fall, but no more hitting my head against the wall
I go around it, i dig myself a hole
A big ol' tunnel thru the middle of my soul
I try and try to pick and choose sometimes i win, sometimes i loose
I'll never go wrong, doing the next right thing.
