Do What You Say

fixxI don’t like when I let the day to day things bother me. I try to see the good in people, and believe being positive can make a tremendous difference in my life. So, I am a bit annoyed that I let this past week get to me.

I dealt with people who lied, broke their word, misrepresented themselves, and simply didn’t follow through. I know most of us have to deal with these same situations day in and day out. However, why can’t people simply do what they say they are going to do?

That reminds me of a song (I’m dating myself here) from the 80’s by The Fixx. It it still a fave album of mine, “Reach the Beach”. The song I am referring to is “One Thing Leads to Another”. Cy Curnin on vocals, Jamie West-Oram on lead guitar, Adam Woods on percussion, and Alfie Agius on bass.

The lyrics, although written about politicians, can easily represent the last seven days. I think I’ll take a bit to listen to The Fixx and look forward to the new week. As long as I do what I say, that has to be worth something.

Do what they say, say what they mean

One thing leads to another

You told me something wrong, I know I listen too long

But then one thing leads to another

One thing leads to another

Then it’s easy to believe

Somebody’s been lying to me

But when the wrong word goes in the right ear

I know you’ve been lying to me

It’s getting rough, off the cuff I’ve got to say enough’s enough
