lyrics

Needless to say I'm taken quite by surprise
You let one story define your entire life
You claim what she's done, no harm to no one,
As a good enough reason

Do it bravely, save me
From the weak and lazy
If you can't face it
Don't do it at all
Do it bravely, do it bravely

Do you mind if I refill my glass of wine
It seems to solve all of your problems just fine
You take what you've done, pass it off, and run
She's still holding you, though, son

Do it bravely, save me
From the weak and lazy
If you can't face it
Don't do it at all

Do it bravely, save me
From the weak and lazy
If you can't face it
Don't do it at all

I know all things and nothing at all
A foreign world spins just down the hall

Do it bravely, do it bravely
Do it bravely, do it bravely

Do it bravely, save me
From the weak and lazy
If you can't face it
Then don't do it at all

Do it bravely, save me
From the weak and lazy
If you can't face it
Then don't do it at all

Do it bravely, do it bravely

about

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
