Do Something

Do Something Lyrics

By Matthew West

I woke up this morning
Saw a world full of trouble now
I thought, "How'd we ever get so far down?"
And "How's it ever gonna turn around?"
So, I turned my eyes to Heaven,
I thought, "God, why don't You do something?"

Well, I just couldn't bear the thought of
People living in poverty,
Children sold into slavery.
The thought disgusted me.
So, I shook my fist at Heaven,
I said, "God, why don't You do something?"
He said, "I did." Yeah. "I created you."

Now listen.

If not us, then who?
If not me and you?
Right now.
Well, it's time for us to do something.
If not now, then when?
Will we see an end
To all this pain?
It's not enough to do nothing.
It's time for us to do something.

I'm so tired of talking
About how we are God's hands and feet.
But it's easier to say than to be.
Live like angels of apathy
Who tell ourselves,
"It's alright: somebody else will do something."

Well, I don't know about you,
But I'm sick and tired
Of life with no desire.
I don't want a flame, I want a fire.
I wanna be the one who stands up and says,
"I'm gonna do something."

If not us, then who?
If not me and you?
Right now.
It's time for us to do something.
Yes, it is. Come on.
If not now, then when?
Will we see an end
To all this pain?
Well, it's not enough to do nothing.
It's time for us to do something.

We are the salt of the earth.
We are a city on a hill
Shine, shine, shine, shine.
We're never gonna change the world
By standing still.
No, we won't stand still.
No, we won't stand still.
No, we won't stand still. No!

If not us, then who?
If not me and you?
Right now.
It's time for us to do something.
If not now, then when?
Will we see an end
To all this pain?
It's not enough to do nothing.
It's time for us to do something.
It's time for us to do something.
It's time for us to do something.

Quarantine Life

Quarantine Life Lyrics

By Matthew West

[Verse 1]
I wish that I could go to Target
It's been a few weeks
I'd spend a couple hours shopping
Buy something I don't need
Last night I dreamed I went to Starbucks
I heard 'em say "Welcome back"
Then I woke up and drank a bad cup of coffee
Through a homemade mask
And now I'm sad

[Chorus]
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
Can't lose weight, but I'm losing my mind
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
Killing that Corona with a Clorox wipe
It's lonely inside
But we're gonna survive
This quarantine life
Quarantine life
It ain't all good but it's all alright

[Verse 2]
I think I might have had a birthday
But I don't know what month it is
And on the days I take a shower, yeah, I
Consider that a win
Every day my girl's complaining
'Cause they closed the salon
Now she's looking like a stranger to me
Always thought she was a blonde, but she not

[Chorus]
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
Friday night toilet paper shopping online
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
Made the Tiger King famous overnight
It's lonely inside
But we're gonna survive
This quarantine life
Quarantine life
It ain't all good but it's all alright

[Bridge]
I wanna leave my house
I wanna touch my face
I wanna hug my friends
I never thought I'd say
I wanna go to work
I wanna wear some pants
Kids to go to school
I love 'em but, oh man!
I wanna play a show
Doin' what I love
I wanna go to church
Cracker Barrel brunch
I wanna leave my house
I wanna touch my face
Oh, it's just another day
In this quarantine life
Quarantine life

[Chorus]
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
Friday night toilet paper shopping online
It's lonely inside
But we're gonna survive
This quarantine life
Quarantine life
It ain't all good but it's all alright
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
It ain't all good but it's all alright
Quarantine life
Quarantine life
It ain't all good but it's all alright

The God Who Stays 

The God Who Stays Lyrics

By Matthew West

[Verse 1]
If I were You I would've given up on me by now
I would've labeled me a lost cause
'Cause I feel just like a lost cause
If I were You I would've turned around and walked away
I would've labeled me beyond repair
'Cause I feel like I'm beyond repair

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, but somehow You don't see me like I do
Somehow You're still here

[Chorus]
You're the God who stays
You're the God who stays
You're the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You're the God who stands
With wide open arms
And You tell me nothing I have ever done can separate my heart
From the God who stays

[Verse 2]
I used to hide
Every time I thought I let You down
I always thought I had to earn my way
But I'm learning You don't work that way
[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause somehow You don't see me like I do
Somehow You're still here

[Chorus]
You're the God who stays (You're the God who stays)
You're the God who stays (You're the God who stays)
You're the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You're the God who stands (You're the God who stands)
With wide open arms (With wide open arms)
And You tell me nothing I have ever done can separate my heart
From the God who stays

[Bridge]
My shame can't separate
My guilt can't separate
My past can't separate
I'm Yours forever
My sin can't separate
My scars can't separate
My failures can't separate
I'm Yours forever
No enemy can separate
No power of hell can take away
Your love for me will never change
I'm Yours forever

[Chorus]
You're the God who stays (You're the God who stays)
You're the God who stays (You're the God who stays)
You're the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You're the God who stands (You're the God who stands)
With wide open arms (With wide open arms)
And You tell me nothing I have ever done can separate my heart
From the God who stays
You're the God who stays
You're the one who runs in my direction
When the whole world walks away
You're the God who stands
With wide open arms
And You tell me nothing I have ever done can separate my heart
From the God who stays
