What Else Can I Do? Lyrics

Isabela: I just made something unexpected
Something sharp, something new
It’s no symmetrical or perfect
But it’s beautiful, and it’s mine
What else can I do?

Mirabel: Wait! Bring it in, bring it in
(Good talk!) Bring it in, bring it in
Isabela: What else can I do?
Mirabel: (Let’s hug!) Bring it in, bring it in
(Free hugs!) Bring it in, bring it in
Isabela: What else can I do?

Isabela: I grow rows and rows of roses
Flor de mayo, by the mile
I make perfect, practiced poses
So much hides behind my smile

Isabela (Mirabel): What could I do if I just grew what I was feeling in the moment?
(Do you know where you’re going? Whoa!)
What could I do if I just knew it didn’t need to be perfect?
It just needed to be? And they let me be?

A hurricane of jacarandas
Strangling figs (Fig!)
Hanging vines (This is fine)
Palma de cera fills the air as I climb
And I push through
What else can I do?

Can I deliver us a river of sundew?
Careful, it’s carnivorous, a little just won’t do
I wanna feel the shiver of something new
I’m so sick of pretty
I want something true, don’t you?

Mirabel (Isabela): You just seem like your life’s been a dream
Since the moment you opened your eyes
(How far do these roots go down?)
All I know are the blossoms you grow
But it’s awesome to see how you rise
Isabela and Mirabel: How far can I (you) rise?
Through the roof, to the skies
Let’s go!

Isabela (Mirabel): A hurricane of jacarandas (Whoo!)
Strangling figs (Go!)
Hanging vines (Grow!)
Palma de cera fills the air as I climb
And I push through
What else, what else?

Isabela and Mirabel: What can you do when you are deeply, madly, truly in the moment?
Isabela: (Seize the moment, keep goin’)
Isabela and Mirabel: What can you do when you know who you wanna be isn’t perfect?
Isabela: But I’ll still be okay
Mirabel: Hey, everybody clear the way (Whoo!)

Isabela (Mirabel): I’m coming through with tabebuia
(She’s coming through with that booyah!)
Making waves (Making waves)
Changing minds (You’ve changed mine)
Isabela and Mirabel: The way is clearer ’cause you’re here, and well
I owe this all to you
What else can I do?

Mirabel: Show them what you can do
Isabela: What else can I do?
Mirabel: There’s nothing you can’t do
Isabela: What else can I do?
