Lyrics

Matthew West

I woke up this morning
Saw a world full of trouble now
Thought, how�d we ever get so far down
How�s it ever gonna turn around
So I turned my eyes to Heaven
I thought, �God, why don�t You do something?�
Well, I just couldn�t bear the thought of
People living in poverty
Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, �God, why don�t You do something?�
He said, �I did, I created you�
If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it�s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It�s not enough to do nothing
It�s time for us to do something
I�m so tired of talking
About how we are God�s hands and feet
But it�s easier to say than to be
Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
It�s alright, �somebody else will do something�
Well, I don�t know about you
But I�m sick and tired of life with no desire
I don�t want a flame, I want a fire
I wanna be the one who stands up and says,
�I�m gonna do something�
We are the salt of the earth
We are a city on a hill
But we�re never gonna change the world
By standing still
No we won�t stand still
No we won�t stand still
No we won�t stand still
