Lyrics

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

You can't always be high

It can't always be good

You don't always comply

When you know that you should

You do the best that you can

Take the ebbs with the flows

In this strange, fickle world

That's just the way that it goes

It's a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

A reminder to self that you're still alive

A promise and a plea to make it to another day

Then a 6 and a 7 and an 8, 9, 10

Time to get on up and do it all again

Don't shoot the messenger before you hear what he's got to say

There's a knock at the door

But there's nobody home

Even when you're inside

You like being alone

You can fight the good fight

Get your head in the game

But at the end of the day

Is it all not the same

It's a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

A reminder to self that you're still alive

A promise and a plea to make it to another day

Then a 6 and a 7 and an 8, 9, 10

Time to get on up and do it all again

Don't shoot the messenger before you hear what he's got to say

While the story plays out

Before they take final bows

There's still a cast on the stage

'Til the curtain comes down

It's a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

A reminder to self that you're still alive

A promise and a plea to make it to another day

Then a 6 and a 7 and an 8, 9, 10

Time to get on up and do it all again

Don't shoot the messenger before you hear what he's got to say
