about

We all have hard times in our lives that beg the question: what you gonna do? Presented as a kind message to someone you care for, about how to handle adversity. “Are you gonna feel sun on your skin….see trees in the wind?” Can we find a way to be a part of the world, even after being knocked down or suffering a trauma? “Find a way to laugh…not cut your whole life in half? What you gonna do, my friend, what you gonna do?”

lyrics

Are you gonna feel sun on your skin
see trees in the wind
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?

Are you gonna give yourself some time
or beat your fists and cry
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?


The life you’re leading
is hard for you
The scenes you see
are sad – it’s true

What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?


Are you gonna take someone’s hand
try to make a stand
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?

Are you gonna find a cause
break all of Nature’s Laws
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?


The life you’re leading
is hard for you
The scenes you see
are sad – it’s true

What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?


Are you gonna find words to say
get on your knees and pray
Are you gonna look up to the sky
spread your wings and fly

Find a way to laugh
not cut your whole life in half
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?


The life you’re leading
is hard for you
The scenes you see
are sad – it’s true

What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?

What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do
What you gonna do my friend
What you gonna do?
