Do It Right Now

One of my favorite vocalists/musicians/people ever is Ingrid Michaelson. She is so talented and stays true to herself in her music. I was listening to her newest album Human Again the other day and I felt that one song in particular spoke to me. I feel like she is trying to say that we shouldn’t wait for anyone else to make our happiness; we have to make it for ourselves. We have to get up off our butts, stop feeling sorry for ourselves, and live.

Do It Now // Written by Ingrid Michaleson

Sitting in the back of the bus

Talking about nothing, oh we’re talking about us
Watching as the world goes hammering on
Hammering on

You say that you’ve got nothing left
There’s nothing left in you to find
You’re gonna ride it out gonna wait it out
Living to die, you’re living to die

No one’s gonna wait for you
No one’s gonna wait for you

So do it now
Do it right now
Don’t waste a minute on the darkness and the pity sitting in your mind and
Do it right now
Do it right now

Everything will stop on a dime
Everything will crash into itself in good time
Do you want to beat your own heart beat your own heart
Or leave it behind
Leave it behind

No one’s gonna wait for you
No one’s gonna wait for you

So do it now
Do it right now
Don’t waste a minute on the darkness and the pity sitting in your mind and
Do it right now
Do it right now

I’m gonna get up I’m gonna get right out of my bed, get out of my bed
You’re gonna stand up, you’re gonna stand right up again stand right up again
I’m gonna get up I’m gonna get out of my bed, get out of my head
You’re gonna stand up, you’re gonna stand up
You’re gonna stand up
You’re gonna stand up

So do it now
Do it right now
Don’t waste a minute on the darkness and the pity sitting in your mind and
Do it right now
Do it right now

What are you going to do with your life right now?
