You might put your love and trust on the line
It's risky, people love to tear that down, let 'em try
Do it anyway
Risk it anyway
And if you're paralyzed by a voice in your head
It's the standing still that should be scaring you instead
Go on and do it anyway
Do it anyway
There will be times you might leap before you look
There'll be times you'll like the cover
And that's precisely why you'll love the book
Do it anyway, do it anyway
Tell me what I said I'd never do
Tell me what I said I'd never say
Read me off a list of the things
I used to not like, but now I think are okay
Sometimes it's not subjective: wrong and right
Deep down you know it's downright wrong but you're invincible tonight
It's done, you did it
Despite your grand attempts the chips are set to fall
And all the stories you might weave cannot negotiate them all
It's gonna be so very hard to say
And watch the trust and joy all drain from her innocent face
But you must do it anyway
It sucks, but do it anyway
Call it surrender but you know that that's a joke
And the punchline is you were actually never in control
Tell me what you said you'd never do
Tell me what you said you'd never say
Read me off that list of things cause I used to not like you
Now I think you're okay
Everybody knows that you just gotta do it anyway
Do it anyway (x8)
Cause you don't do nothing (Do it anyway)
To avoid self punishment (Do it anyway)
You won't do nothing (Do it anyway)
You won't feel nothing (Do it anyway)
Gotta do it (Do it anyway)
Do it, do it anyway (Do it anyway)
Ah (Do it anyway)
Do it anyway!
