What You Don't Do
Lianne La Havas Lyrics


Heavy words, little lies
Telling everything but the truth, the truth
Three little words over time overheard and overused, used
No sweet nothing could ever be turned into something new
No grand gesture could ever be made to measure you

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof

I've been saving up my time so I could spend it all on you, on you
Oh, all I need is to see you smile, I've forgotten how to be blue, blue

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
Don't tell the whole world, just wanna be your girl
(It's what you don't do, it's what you don't do)

The closer we get, oh
The less we need to show

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
Won't tell the whole world, just wanna be your girl
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do, it's what you don't do)

Oh, the closer we get, oh
The less we need to show

Heavy words, little lies
Telling everything but the truth, the truth
Three little words over time overheard and overused, used
No sweet nothing could ever be turned into something new
No grand gesture could ever be made to measure you

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof

I've been saving up my time so I could spend it all on you, on you
Oh, all I need is to see you smile; I've forgotten how to be blue, blue

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say

It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
Don't tell the whole world; just wanna be your girl
(It's what you don't do, it's what you don't do)

The closer we get, oh

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all

It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
Won't tell the whole world; just wanna be your girl
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say

YES!!! I'm all about this! Saw the title and SCREAMED - love this one live. <3

Shai Bradshaw

hi you are awesome too.

Allison Hutton

Just wanna say... I loooove ur voice, I listen to your passionfruit and redbone covers almost every day

anita nordenso

gotta say, her version on Tiny Desk Concert is a whole other level! 🎶

Diego Abud

I honestly think her raw stripped-down performances are far better than the recordings in the studio.

Jed Friedland

Lianne's strong suit is AUTHENTICITY. Nice as the vid is, it downplays the best part of who she is to emphasize how pretty she is and how nice she wears fashion. It works to bring her message to the masses who like to consume everything that is shiny. I am fine with the vid, AND prefer producers that capture the MAGIC and POWER of the force of life and vision that is Lianne. For that you need to watch other videos (like Tiny Desk and many of the other ones shot in clubs and living rooms as well). It is WHO she is through her music that is so powerful.

For me her intimate SOFAR rendition of Midnight is THE cream of the crop!

Pau Perramon

Yes!

Andereya Baguma

Very true

I predict this song will be used somewhere in 5-10 years... an advert, game, trailer, something.. and it will blow up
