“You Do What You Did” Lyrics

You do what you did
She called you, but you hid
And now it’s you, kid
That’s callin’ for help

You do what you can
It’s only you, man
To hold your own hand
While you’re on the shelf

You made your case
You did your best
You shot your shot
And you failed the test

Yeah, you got to get out of here
You got to be gettin’ back
I know you don’t like it much
But that doesn’t change the fact

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

Lots of folks
Blow their stack
Some go down
But some bounce back

Yeah, and nobody’s always wrong
And nobody’s always right
And somebody’s always hurt
And somebody sees the light

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

And like a rose
No fighting knows
If love comes and goes
Or it’s gone for good

Like in a dream
You just do what you seem to
You do what you can
You can’t do what you should

It’s not your day
To overcome
But still in all
You can have some fun

Yeah, you got to get out of here
You got to be gettin’ back
I know you don’t like it much
But that doesn’t change the fact

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

[break]

You do what you did
She called you, but you hid
And now it’s you, kid
That’s callin’ for help

You do what you can
It’s only you, man
To hold your own hand
While you’re on the shelf

You made your case
You did your best
You shot your shot
And you failed the test

Yeah, you got to get out of here
You got to be gettin’ back
I know you don’t like it much
But that doesn’t change the fact

Now forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone

Forget it, man
You did what you can
You go to go home
Forget it, kid
You did what you did
You’re not alone
