Break of day, the dawn is here
Johnny's up and pacing
Compromise, or persevere
His mind is racing
Johnny has no guide
Johnny wants to hide
Can he make a mark,
If he gives up his spark?
Johnny can't decide

Susan longs to live by the sea,
She's through with competition
Susan wants a family
Johnny's got a tough decision
Johnny has no guide

Johnny wants to hid
Can he settle down
And still not drown?

Johnny can't decide

Michael's gonna have it all
His luck will never end
Johnny's backed against the wall
Can he bend his dreams,
Just like his friend?

Johnny sees that Susan's right
Ambition eats right through you
Michael doesn't see why
Johnny holds so tight
To the things that
Johnny feels are true

Johnny has no guide
(Johnny has no guide)
Johnny wants to hide
(Johnny wants to hide)
How can you soar
If your nailed to the floor?
Johnny can't decide

I want to write music
I want to sit down
Right now at the piano
And write a song that
People will listen to and remember
And do the same thing every morning
For the rest of my life

Johnny has no guide
(Johnny has no guide)
Johnny wants to...
Johnny wants to hide
How do you know
When it's time to let go?

Johnny can't decide
(Johnny can't decide)
Johnny can't decide
(Johnny can't decide)
Johnny can't decide
(Johnny can't decide)
Decide, decide
Decide, decide

Johnny can't decide
