LYRICS: Ben Folds Five

“Do It Anyway”

Last year, fans of Ben Folds Five were PSYCHED when the band got back together again for the album The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind. I was never a big fan of BFF, but this album was solid, and it made my top ten list for 2012.

I was listening to this track today, admiring the dynamite lyrics:

“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 ok”
