DO THE RIGHT THING

Had some time to think it through
Took an in flight movie to make me see that I was missing you
Been OK, but nothing’s fine
Took a sign on Sullivan Street for me to see that I was out of line
And I could say sorry ‘til I’m blue in the face



I will try to do the right thing
I will try to do what’s good for you
I will try to do the right thing
But I’ve already done wrong my dear
I’ve already done wrong



Had some space to clear my mind
Took a stranger’s passing words to make me realise that I was blind
Stupid is as stupid does
Took a line from a one-minute novel just to show me what a fool I was
And I could say sorry ‘til I’m blue in the face



I will try to do the right thing
I will try to do what’s good for you
I will try to do the right thing
But I’ve already done wrong, so wrong
I’ve already done wrong, my love



I’ve already done wrong, but it’s been so long
If I did it all again I would choose us

I will try to do the right thing
I will try to do what’s good for you
I will try to do the right thing
But I’ve already done wrong my love
I’ve already done wrong, so wrong
I’ve already done wrong my love
I’ve already done wrong
