All We Do

Oh Wonder

All We Do Lyrics

[Verse 1]
All we do is hide away
All we do is, all we do is hide away
All we do is chase the day
All we do is, all we do is chase the day


[Verse 2]
All we do is lie and wait
All we do is, all we do is lie and wait
All we do is feel the fade
All we do is, all we do is feel the fade

[Chorus]
I've been upside down
I don't wanna be the right way round
Can't find paradise on the ground
I've been upside down
I don't wanna be the right way round
Can't find paradise on the ground

[Verse 3]
All we do is hide away
All we do is, all we do is hide away
All we do is chase the day
All we do is, all we do is chase the day


[Verse 4]
All we do is play it safe
All we do is live inside a cage
All we do is play it safe
All we do, all we do

[Chorus]
I've been upside down
I don't wanna be the right way round
Can't find paradise on the ground
I've been upside down
I don't wanna be the right way round
Can't find paradise on the ground

[Outro]
All we do is hide away
All we do is, all we do is hide away
[All we do is chase the day
All we do is, all we do is chase the day]
All I did was fail today
All I wanna be is whites in waves
All I did was fail today
All we do, all we do

About “All We Do”

“All We Do” was written in just four minutes. Josephine stated that they wrote it on New Year’s Eve at one in the morning: “We’d been working all evening, then I sat down on the piano, played, and Ant started singing ‘All we do’ and it just popped out.” The sentiment of the track is the point in which they began to follow their dreams, embarking on a new adventure.

The official music video was released on October 18, 2016. It featured footage by filmmakers and artists around the world answering the question, “What does it mean to be human?” The duo said: “We believe that everyone is equal. We are all human. We all deserve the world. And we can build that equality by sharing what love, knowledge and magic we have, with others.”

In an interview with Stereo Fox, they talked about how important it was for them to write a song about ignoring the monotony of life and challenging yourself as a human:

It’s easy to sit and do the same thing, play it safe, not take risks. If you don’t critically look at yourself from time to time, it’s easy to slide onto the conveyor belt of life and do the same thing day in and day out, which to us, isn’t living. Life is about challenges and risks and the excitement of the new and the unknown.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    Noisey: What other back stories are there to tracks on the album?

    (Josephine Vander Gucht) “All We Do” was a big thing for us. We wrote it on the eve of New Year’s Eve and it just poured out of us. It was 1 AM and we’d been working all evening, then I sat down at the piano, played, and Ant started singing “All we do” and we wrote it in four minutes. It just popped out. It was really important to us to write a song about ignoring the monotony of life and challenging yourself as a human. It’s so hard to do because humans are lazy, they like comfort and excuses and procrastinating, but the sentiment behind “All We Do” is the point when we started following our dreams and embarking on a new thing.
