I wonít be joining your party tonight
Iím on a ride and have to hold on tight.
Save my tongue, save my soul;
Iím gonna keep pushing towards that goal.
"Huh?" You say.
"When did you get that way?"
Well, todayís the day
And I wonít delay.
No more talking Ďbout how Sally sold out
Stabbing and jabbing with my little mouth.
No more biting on Jackís mistakes
No fruitless whining over the mess Ann makes.
Iím trading in my gossip for worship
All my lost time for more than a dime
All my words, for praise and glory;
Not one more on a pointless story.
"So youíre better than us?"
I hear you say.
Not one bit or in any way!
All Iíve done is made a choice,
It'll be LIFE each time you hear my voice.
For every word I will be judged,
For every curse in anger splurged.
For empty promises, I cannot count
For every lie, Iíll give account.
So no, I cannot come today.
And not tomorrow by the way;
This change has come and is here to stay.
Iím watching my words day after day.
