Don’t Expect a Knock

There’s two people on opposite sides of the land
both are getting lazy and it’s getting out of hand
They expect everything to fall at their feet
for someone to come a-knocking down their quiet street

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

Your life is in your hands as you damn well know
don’t sit back and let it away from you go
Chase that dream with a little hard work
never look back on what to you may hurt

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

Of the two people, one has a dream
she wants to be a teacher, to teach what she’s seen
To educate the kids on a wider world she knows
all her experience will help them to grow

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

But she always makes excuses as the days pass her by
one melts into another and this makes her cry
She knows what she needs to do, but fear holds her back
confidence in herself is what she does lack

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

Then the other one, a man in his thirties
dreams of something bigger, amazing possibilities
He dreams of that chance if only it would come
but staying still unmoving won’t make his dreams run

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

He dreams of being a writer but needs to push himself
but it’s a tough business, who does he ask for help?
So he sits and writes but not really committing true
family and friends have mocked him, his dreams he may lose

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

They both are ruled by fear of failing, so sad this is
they feel trapped in a bowl just like a goldfish
They both know what they must do, but afraid and stuck
all they need is a guiding hand and a little luck

Don’t expect a knock though, get off your backsides
don’t from this world bury yourself and hide
Go give the fates a helping hand for you
then destiny will come to guide you, so be yourself true

Then destiny will come to guide you, to be yourself true…
then destiny will come to guide you, to be yourself true…
Then destiny will come to guide you, to be yourself true…
