You Can Do That
Lisa Stansfield Lyrics


It's time to tell yourself
Nothing's quite as bad as it seems
And it's time to help yourself
To all the things you've only dreamed about

You don't know what's up
Everything feels so low down
Pick yourself right up
You can make it better baby, you can make it better
[Chorus]
You've got to live your life
You can do that
You've got to make it right
You can do that
Your got to let some light in your life

Don't be afraid to cry
You can do that
Don't be afraid to take a look inside
You can do that
It's just a state of mind
It's all right

There's no more turning back
And straight ahead there's so much more
Don't dwell on what you lack
Look at what you have and open up that door

You don't know what's up
Everything feels so low down
Pick yourself right up
You can make it better baby, you can make it better

[Chorus]

Don't be afraid to cry
You can do that
Don't be afraid to take a look inside
You can do that
It's just a state of mind
It's all right

I also, am amazed, that this HUGE soul tune, doesn't seem to have received the attention it deserves! It must have flown up the soul charts at the time and still would today.

Thx for your comment Jonny, I think exactly the same!!! At least this is classy music and not like the studio garbage that seudo artists release nowadays. Lisa has always been a talented singer and performer ever since her roots at Razzamatazz, take a look at her here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3A1ZuoG1rw

How is it that this AWESOME copy of this song has only been viewed 4 times??

Great Daddy

A few days ago, I was desperately looking for this song on youtube and guess what? I just bumped into a rough copy made by a fan that shows images of tourists going around and sounded rough and awful so I got angry enough to make up my mind and upload the original album version, ´cause I just simply love this song and I wanted to hear it clean and neat anytime I feel the need so, I also figured it out in the situation other fan wanted to listen to it and there was no clean copy available here on youtube, I even got a bad notification from youtube about the copyright but as everyone knows we´re all Lisa´s fans and nobody wants to monetize her videos or get a profit from her material or anyhing like that, we the fans just want to listen to her beautiful music, voice and lyrics, besides how beautiful she still is at her age. I hope to get more visits though to support and spread out her music, thanks for your comment Chidioko I appreciate it!!!!
