Lyrics

Do It Now
© Words and music by Chris Chickering (Chris Chickering Music,

Let's not wait until tomorrow
To manifest our waiting dreams
'Cause these are gifts that we've been given
That are waiting to take wing

And when the smoke of doubt surrounds you
Know it's not where you belong
Just burn through it like an arrow
Let's not wait until tomorrow
Do it now

Whoooaaah
Whoooaaah
Ah, do it now
Whoooaaah

We all lose sometimes
There are lessons in the losing
that are ours to find
Am I lesser than?
It's the fog that creeps in deeming us the lesser man
But if you look beyond the human ego dance
And the present circumstance
You'll see the future's in our hands

Let's not wait until tomorrow
To manifest our waiting dreams
'Cause these are gifts that we've been given
That are waiting to take wing

And when the smoke of doubt surrounds you
Know it's not where you belong
Just burn through it like an arrow
Let's not wait until tomorrow
Do it now

Whoooaaah
Whoooaaah
Woah, do it now
Whoooaaah

Am I good enough?
What will the others think if I should rise above?
What's been holding me
back from all I know that I am really meant to be?
And the fear of nding I'm not who I am
Falls away when
We step up and take the chance

So let's not wait until tomorrow
To manifest our waiting dreams
'Cause these are gifts that we've been given
That are waiting to take wing

And when the smoke of doubt surrounds you
Know it's not where you belong
Just burn through it like an arrow
Let's not wait until tomorrow
Do it now

When it's right in front of you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
And it's somethin' that you gotta to
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Be the truth inside of you

Let's not wait until tomorrow
To manifest our waiting dreams
'Cause these are gifts that we've been given
That are waiting to take wing

And when the smoke of doubt surrounds you
Know it's not where you belong
Just burn through it like an arrow
Let's not wait until tomorrow
Do it now

Whoooaaah
Whoooaaah
Ah...do it now
Whoooaaah
Oh...do it now
Whoooaaah
Whoooaaah
You got to do it now
