Verse 1

When push comes to shove,

When I face the night,

Tell me how to cope,

How to make things right.

I'm a little scared,

But hey, aren't we all?

Well, I'm not prepared

To take one more fall.

Chorus

But I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To get over and stay over you.

And I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To start over and start life anew.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

Verse 2

Pop beat stuck in head,

I can't hear your screams.

Tucked in my warm bed,

Ready for sweet dreams.

Tomorrow is here,

I might see your face.

Won't give in to fears,

Or my own darkness.

Chorus

But I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To get over and stay over you.

And I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To start over and start life anew.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

Bridge

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

I'm gonna send you home, it's past curfew.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

I'm gonna sit right here, sip on my brew.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

Yeah, baby, sometimes I hate you too,

Chorus

But I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To get over and stay over you.

And I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To start over and start life anew.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.

Chorus

But I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To get over and stay over you.

And I, I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

To start over and start life anew.

I've gotta do what I've gotta do,

I've gotta do what I've gotta do.
