Stan Davis: Music

Doing What You Love (And Loving What You Do)

(Eryn Sharpe (sop); Alina Krogstad (alto); Timothy Kyle (tenor); Stan Davis (bass vocal, guitar); Alex Olson (bass guitar); Don Leppard (drums)
words & music by Stan Davis
When you wake up in the morning
Do you feel like you're ready to go?
Or would you rather pull the covers up
And try to keep your profile low?
'Cause if your future is looking dark
You can ignite just a little spark
If you are doing what you love
And loving what you do!

You've been looking all around
And still don't see the happiness at your feet
You've got to learn from the past
So the mistakes you've made you won't repeat
It doesn't mean that you will never fall
But you can get back up and still stand tall
When you are doing what you love
And loving what you do!

It is nothing out of your control
You will find it there within your soul
It's not in fame or in wealth
But inside yourself
(Look inside yourself to find yourself!)

[guitar solo]

You say you need to get a lucky break
Before you can start walking the talk
But don't waste your time
Expecting opportunity to knock
Tell me, what are you waiting for?
If there's no knock, you can build a door
It's time for doing what you love
And loving what you do!
