Why Don't You Do It?

from Lessons by The Sharp Shadows



It’s been temptation in the past
for a feeling that could never last
and yet you’re waiting fingers poised

and they can seem what you want to see
but you know they’ll never be
any more than a rush of dopamine

Why don’t you do it?
Why don’t you do it?
Why don’t you do it? while you’re feeling weak
Why don’t you do it?
Why don’t you do it?
cuz the last that you see will be the first that you regret

In that moment are you feeling bold?
Or have you lost all self-control?
that itchy trigger finger stings

And though it starts to cast a spell
And you know the feeling well
Experience teaches differently

and it’s never what you expect
it’s just a cheat at a human connection
just to circumvent rejection

so it’s better well enough alone
than staring at your phone
tapping the glass of a picture postcard
someone else’s life that you wish you could discard

Cuz the last time that you did it didn’t work out
And the feeling in your gut says it won’t be much better now
