Better Plans

I wanted it so bad
Would’ve sold my soul
To make it big
In Pop or Rock n Roll
So I kept it up
With a stronger will
I pushed too much
I couldn’t wait until

The lights were centered on me
Singin’ all my songs for the crowd
And I could finally get noticed
And my parents would be proud
Then I crashed and burned
I couldn’t be what I wanted to be
But little did I know back in the day
God had better plans for me

I drove back home
Was welcomed back & told
I’d have to find work
Get my life under control
Wrote, wrote & wrote
With a buddy of mine
Things only got worse
But I thought I was fine

The lights would center on us
As we sang songs for everyone
And we’d finally get noticed
We were gonna have lots of fun
But we crashed and burned
We couldn’t be what we wanted to be
But little did I know back in the day
God had better plans for me

It was clear what I had to do
I had to focus on my family
So I did but I still felt empty
‘Cause I had something
No one else could steal
It was truth, it was real
And it was totally free
God’s better plans for me

While it’s not what I expected
I can’t help having pride inside
Cause I didn’t get so down
That I’d commit suicide
Instead He heard my prayers
Today, I am just grateful to be
Cause I know God
Yeah I know God
Had better plans for you and me
God had better plans for you and me.
