lyrics

V E R S E 1
You can’t take the high road
You can’t take the low road
You can’t seem to locate some middleground to take
There’s no ground to stand on
And no place to stand off
All you can do is nothing

V E R S E 2
You can’t have and eat it
You can’t have it both ways
There’s no way to work out a compromise
You’ll never put it behind you
Let bygones be bygones
All you can do is nothing.
(Do nothing.)

C H O R U S
There’s no reliving or regretting
There’s no forgiving, no forgetting along
When all you that can do is nothing,
All you do can do nothing but wrong

V E R S E 3
There’s no second chances
There’s no starting over
There’s no hope of turning a new leaf over
There’s just no overcoming
What’s not blowing over
All you can do is nothing.

V E R S E 4
Leave off with the high road
To hell with the low road
Forget ever finding that middleground to take
You once had a best mate
But now it’s a stalemate
All you can do is nothing
(Do nothing)

C H O R U S 2
Can’t take it with you, you can’t leave it
Can’t dish it out, when you’re heartweak and headstrong
And all that you can do is nothing.
So all you do can do nothing but wrong.
