Name of Song: What a relief to know I am doing it

Feelings of I’m not worthy,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Noises inside my very head,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Upsets with my spouse I love,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Confusing myself with who did it first,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Chorus
Now I know I’m doing it,
Funnily, this is true,
Lingering feelings it was done to me,
But I agreed, even though I’m screwed.
______

Taking stock of all my positive traits,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Studying hard, I cannot fail,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Thinking thoughts I should come clean,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Pushing my body around and about,
What a relief to know I am doing it.

Chorus
Yes I know I’m doing it,
Funnily, this is true,
Lingering feelings it was done to me,
But I agreed, even though I’m screwed.

I can hope I do much better,
I can observe before I agree,
I can learn to ask all the questions I have,
I can learn to say what I see.

I can take a step back and look things over,
I can demand of myself to say what I see,
I can realize it’s me who’ll look after myself,
It’s up to me to be at ease with who I will be.

Chorus
Yes I know I’m doing it,
Funnily, this is true,
Lingering feelings it was done to me,
But I agreed, even though I’m screwed.

There is only one way to achieve something,
You have to do what is needed to get it done,
If it’s you who is doing what you need to get your prize,
Then it’s you who is the cause of what you’ll become.

Doesn’t mean you don’t get help as you are doing it,
Doesn’t mean you don’t ask questions along the way,
Doesn’t mean there aren’t those people who you couldn’t have done without,
You’re just yourself, you’re simply you, you’re here to stay.

Chorus
Yes I know I’m doing it,
Funnily, this is true,
Lingering feelings it was done to me,
But I agreed, even though I’m screwed.
