Get It Together lyrics

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin.
No one has the power to hurt you life your kin.
Kept it inside didn't tell no one else,
didn't even want to admit to yourself.

And now your chest burns and your backaches,
from fifteen years of holding the pain.
And now you'll only have yourself to blame if you continue to live this way.

Chorus: Get it together, you have to heal your body.
Get it together you have to heal your heart.
Whatsoever you so sow you will reap, Get it together.

Dark future ahead of me that's what they said.
I'd be starving if I ate al the lies they fed.
Cause' I've been redeemed from your anguish and pain,
a miracle child, I'm floating on a cloud.
Cause' the wards that come from your mouth, you're the first to hear...
Speak words of beauty ad you will be there.
Na matter what anybody says what matters most is what you think of yourself.

Chorus:Get it together, you have to heal your body.
Get it together you have to heal your heart.
Whatsoever you so sow you will reap, Get it together.

The choice is yours, don't matter what it is.
To choice life... is to choice to forgive.
You don't have to try and hurt him, or break his pride...
Just shake that weight off and you'll be ready to fly.

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin,
no one has the power to hurt you like your friends.
Thought it would never change,
but as time moved on,
that ugly duckling grew up to be a swan.
And now your chest hurts and your back aches because
now the years are showing up on your face.
But you'll never be happy and you'll never be whole
until you see the beauty in growing old.

Chorus:Get it together, you have to heal your body.
Get it together you have to heal your heart.
Whatsoever you so sow you will reap, Get it together.

You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can live or you can die
You know that life is a choice you make
You can give or you can take
