Leave It Up
Music by Jac Mestel & Kevin Neely, Lyrics by Jac Mestel

Steer your boat
For the passengers bored of their country.
Hear them quote
Maudlin words they can find for themselves.

Check your coat
But make use of that baggage you carry.
Clear your throat
But of course, you’ve got nothing to say.

So, leave it up,
Just, leave it up,
Oh, leave it up to me.

Leave it up,
Just, leave it up
Leave it up to me.

Sip your wine
But make way for the movers and shakers.
Take your time
Well it’s not like we’re waiting for you.

You might find
You’ve been rolling around in the breakers.
Can’t you try
Climbing out to an infinite blue.

Or leave it up
Just, leave it up
Leave it up to me.

Take it on
Or your life may be lulling behind you
‘til you’re gone
And have nothing to show for it all.

Don’t leave it up,
don’t leave it up
Don’t leave it up to me

Don’t leave it up
Don’t leave it up
Don’t leave it up to me
