Choice to Change

When the going gets tough,
I’ve only got one choice –
To rise above the lies
And the white noise.

I’ve lived in fear every year,
Ever since I was a young boy.
But if I’m ever going to turn the page,
I’ve got to make a choice to change.

My voice might shake;
My heart violently palpitate.
But I want to be the one to say,
When the going gets tough, I’m enough;
I’m here to stay.

I’ve been a lonely heart in the crowd.
Filled with bitterness and doubt.
A troubled mind with an axe to grind.
It’s tough to be kind when you’re feeling left behind.

And so I say,
I’ve a decision to make.
I’ll try to take the high road;
Only God knows what’s at stake.

I’ve only got one choice –
If I’m ever going to quash the rage,
I’ve got to use my voice
And make a choice to change.
