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 a standing still
I should be scaring you instead
Come on in, do it anyway
Do it anyway

There will be times you might live before you love
There'll be times you'll like the covering
That's precisely why you'll love the bug
Do it anyway
Do it anyway

Tell me what I said I'll never do
Tell me what I've said I'd never say
Bring me off a list of things I used to not like
But now I think are okay

Sometimes it's not subject wrong and right
Deep down you know it's down right wrong
But you're invincible tonight
So you do it anyway
It's done you did it

Despite your grand that tell you
That your chips are set to fall
And all the stories you might believe
Can not negotiate them all
Do it anyway

Be honest anywhay
So tell me what I said I'll never do
Tell me what I've said I'd never say
Bring me off a list of things
I used to not like But howl think are okay
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh

It's gonna be so very hard to say
And watch the trust enjoy our brain
From our innocent face
But you must dolt anyway
It sucks but dolt anyway

Counts are in, imagine you about to just
And the punchline is that
You were actually never in control
But still surrender anyway

So tell me what you said you'll never do
Tell me what you've said you'd never say
Bang me off that list of things
Cause I used to not like you
But howl think you're okay
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh

Everybody knows that you just can't do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway
Do it anyway

Cause you don't do nothing to avoid your punishment
You don't do nothing
You don't do nothing
Gotta do it anyway
Do it anyway
