Go By Your Feelings

(parody of "More Than a Feeling" by Boston)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: The original for this song would have been in my Top Ten favorites list if I'd never gotten saved. My version is about people who let their emotions run their lives, instead of walking by faith.



You woke up this morning, and your joy was gone.
How did you lose it? You felt okay.
You lost your path and it's been withdrawn.
You blinked your eyes and it slipped away.

Chorus:
You go by your feelings (go by your feelings).
They're not here very long, they never stay (go by your feelings).
Truth unbelieving (go by your feelings),
You won't see many plans through today.
You won't see many plans through by today.

So many feelings have come and gone.
Their traces make you to laugh and cry.
But I can recall a time not so long,
You followed the Son, told your flesh goodbye.

chorus
solo

When you're tired of hot and cold,
Don't hide from the Master, forget the way,
Or dream of the world that brings you woe.
Just close your eyes and your lips can pray.
Your lips can pray!

Chorus:
Don't go by your feelings (go by your feelings).
They're not here very long, they never stay (go by your feelings).
Pray while you're kneeling (go by your feelings),
And in grace, walk by faith every day.
