Wayward Ways

I’ve been trying to find myself
And wondering who I am
I’ve been praying this day to day
Is all part of the big plan

I’ve got this gospel song
Running in and out of my head
I was raised on the Spirit’s fruit
I was raised on Jesus’ bread

It's been a long time since I was a kid
It's been a long road here to where I am

But you can blame my roots for the good you see
When the leaves fall off and you look at me
But I’ll take the blame… for all of my wayward ways
You can blame my roots for the way I am
For the bleeding heart and the helping hands
But I’ll take the blame… for all of my wayward ways

I know I made you cry
And that ain’t no claim to fame
I promise you that I’m not proud
Of the tears shed in my name

But I’m trying to work it out
I’m trying to right my wrongs
I’m trying to speak my peace
I’m starting with this song

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree
And I can still hear the songs we used to sing
Like “Amazing Grace” “Just as I Am” 
On “The Solid Rock” I’m still trying to stand

But old habits die hard when the habits are fun
And what’s said is said and what’s done is done
For all these crimes I’m guilty as charged
But from time to time... life gets hard

But you can blame my roots for the good you see
When the leaves fall off and you look at me
But I’ll take the blame… for all of my wayward ways
You can blame my roots for the way I am
For the bleeding heart and the helping hands
But I’ll take the blame… for all of my wayward ways
