What You Want To

I know that I should be narrow
I know that I should be true
I should shoot straight as an arrow
I should come always to you
I should not love with abandon
I should aim, fire, and fly
but the hardest thing still to decide
is not what you should do, but what you want to

well, I know that I should be happy
I know that I should be home
I should’ve folded that letter
I should’ve looked for a phone
I should not smile at these strangers
I should pack up and depart
but the heaviest weight on my heart
is not what I should do, but what I want to

don’t know who – don’t know how
dead of the night when the lights come crashing down
can’t say why – won’t say when
dead of the dawn and the lights rise up again
rise up again

and I know that I should remember
I know that I should commit
I should get back to the basics
I should come down from the cliff
I should not run to my own death
I should beg mercy and bow
but the thing that keeps me alive somehow
is not what I should do – but what I want to

yeah the thing that gets you breathing, trust me
the thing that keeps you alive, roughly
the hardest to pinpoint or just be
not what you should do
it’s not what you should do  
not what you should do – but what you want to
