Lori McKenna — How To Be Righteous lyrics

Don't judge me,
I will judge myself.
I will lie in my bed at night
Wide awake or asleep.
I will feel pain
When I know I have given it.
Everything I put out to the world
I know comes back to me.

But when angels hear the devils callin'
And my vision's unclear I got no sense at all
I'm just hoping I will obey my conscience
I want to learn
How to be righteous...

I saw it on a TV show
I bought the book you know
Paid attention when I thought
The teacher was talking to me
But it's not easy no
To get over, let it go
All these feelings that are burning
And building up inside of me
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/lori-mckenna-how-to-be-righteous-lyrics.html ]
But when angels hear the devils callin'
And my vision's unclear I got no sense at all
I'm just hoping I will obey my conscience
I want to learn
How to be righteous...

So I'll look at all I have and I will claim it.
Won't let anybody else ever tell me who I should be.
I'll look in the mirror and gaze in my children's eyes,
And I will not give a damn about
What anybody else thinks of me.

And when questions come, I will answer right.
Be true to myself, need be put up a fight.
Will not heed to greed, I will obey my conscience.

I want to learn,
I need to learn,
How to be righteous...

So when angels hear the devils callin'
And my vision's unclear I got no sense at all
I'm just hoping I will obey my conscience.

I want to learn,
I need to learn,
How to be righteous...
