Courtney Barnett – Don’t Do It Lyrics

Don’t Do It Lyrics – Courtney Barnett

Said you need to do it, ’cause you can’t feel it tonight
Well, you can if you want to
Wanna take you outside, wanna show you the sky
To remind you why you shouldn’t

Do your worst if you can
Do your worst if you can, do it
You can if you want
You can take it – yeah, you want to run
Said you wanted to, and then kissed the gun
You can if you want to

And you wanna do it, and you wanna do it
If you wanna do it, you are gonna do it
Even if I don’t want you to

Say it outright that you don’t want to see me tonight
And you won’t if you don’t want to
Hide it from me, if you must
Hide it from me, if you don’t trust anything I say right to you

And you wanna do it, and you wanna do it
If you wanna do it, you are gonna do it
Even if I don’t want you to

I was inside painting your name on the window
I was somewhere inside
And I wanted to find out why you’re hiding
I was tired of the fight

Look me in the eyes, say you can’t do it
Look me in the eyes, say you can’t do it
But you will if you want to
Look me in the eyes, say you can’t do it
Look me in the eyes, say you can’t do it
But you will if you want to

And you wanna do it, and you wanna do it
If you wanna do it, you are gonna do it
Even if I don’t want you to

Shake it down
So much better
Tell me that you don’t know what you do

And you wanna do it, if you wanna do it
You will if you want to
And you wanna do it, if you wanna do it
You will if you want to
And you wanna do it, if you wanna do it
You will if you want to

I wish I could make you right
