Do Something

Album: Long Road Out Of Eden (2007)
  • I've been walkin' through the fields
    And on the streets of town
    Trying to make sense of what you left me
    Everything that I believed in
    Has been turned upside down
    And now it seems the whole wide world's gone crazy

    But when I feel like giving up
    And I'm ready to walk away
    In the stillness, I can hear
    A voice inside me say

    Do something
    Do something
    It's too late for saving face
    Don't just stand there takin' up space
    Why don't you do something?
    Do something
    It's not over
    No, it's never too late

    You were always on my side
    Love was all we had
    Now I sit and watch our love unraveling
    I pick up the morning paper
    All the news is bad
    How did we get on this road we're traveling?

    But when I feel like giving up
    And there's nowhere left to go
    That's the time I dig down deep
    The only thing I know

    Do something
    Do something
    Don't leave it up for someone else
    Don't feel sorry for yourself
    Why don't you do something?
    Do something
    It's not over
    No, it's never too late

    Run away
    You can't run away
    For your honor
    For your pride
    You'll sleep better
    Knowin' you tried

    To do something
    Do something
    It's too easy not to care
    You're not ready for the rockin' chair
    Get up and do something
    Do something
    Don't wait too long
    Even if it's wrong
    You've got to do something
    Do something
    It's not over
    No, it's never too lateWriter/s: DON HENLEY, TIMOTHY B. SCHMIT, STEUART SMITH
