    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until i finally believed in me

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until they set me free

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until they chose to see me

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until i swam the deepest sea

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until no one could reach me

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until that day beseeched me

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    because i not it was beneath me

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until one day GOD preached to me

    i used to listen to people
    tell me what i could and could
    not do

    until he reached me
