Name of Song: Now I’m supposed to

Now I’m supposed to,
I must do it now,
I’ve no idea why,
Or should I, or how.

Could be duty that drives me,
Some idea so deep inside,
That drives me to do what,
I feel, but don’t know why.

When asked why do you do it,
I answer, “it just seems right”,
But honestly I’m just following,
Those hidden orders so deep inside.

Chorus
Now I’m supposed to,
Ok, I’ll do it,
Now I’m supposed to,
It just seems right,
Now I’m supposed to,
How come I do it?,
Why am I supposed to?,
What if it’s not right?.

Regrets building upon each other,
A trail of life too hard to be,
Moving forward seems only logical,
Looking back I cannot see.

Now I’m supposed to be a someone,
A father, mother, a husband/wife,
Now I’m supposed to follow patterns,
Set in stone by someone’s strife.

There is pain and unawareness,
There is stress and loss of life,
There are memories that stay forgotten,
Remaining hidden with all their might.

Now I’m supposed to do what they say,
That’s a sad and sorry fact,
But because I cannot see them,
They direct with little tact.

Chorus
Now I’m supposed to,
OK, I’ll do it,
Now I’m supposed to,
It just seems right,
Now I’m supposed to,
How come I do it?,
Why am I supposed to?,
What if it’s not right?.

Here I am, now I’m supposed to,
Live a life with hidden force,
So I move forward as best I can do,
No looking back, not any more.

I know it’s not a perfect story,
But so common for many folks,
And for those who won’t admit it,
It’s too sad to even joke.

Chorus
Now I’m supposed to,
OK, I’ll do it,
Now I’m supposed to,
It just seems right,
Now I’m supposed to,
How come I do it?,
Why am I supposed to?,
What if it’s not right?.
