What It Takes

singing it all out loud

you dont care bout the crowd

giving it all your best

you think about all of the rest

*

and you re giving it all up for the crowd

your body and soul, your heart and your mind

and they tell you hey girl you better get yourself a safe place

but you dont mind cause it isnt theirs to take

 *

and it hurts so much and it aches

it hurts so much that you brake

and it hurts so much and it aches
it hurts so much, so you can brake

*

tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, you re a wise guy

tell me how you do it

tell me how you survive

and he says

gotta realize girl, they re all lost

they re lambs without a shephard, without a guide

 *

and it hurts them yess and it aches

it hurts so much that they brake

and it hurts them yess and it aches
it hurts so much, so they brake

 

*
so that s where you come in

you give them strength

you give them a sense of benignen

you give them what they need to get through the day

you get your money and everybody gets paid

*

giving it all up for the crowd

cause they re not different people

they are what u are

you gotta do your share

cause there s no one who can take your place

*

dont be scared of your fall

that is gonna happen

gonna win it all

you can only win when you loose

cause that s when you find

your rhythm n blues

*

but before that

 

it needs to hurt and it needs to ache

it needs to hurt so much that you brake

and it needs to hurt and it needs to ache
it needs to hurt so much, so you can brake

 

*

when you fall down on your knees

that s when life starts

that s when you realize what s happening

and only then, and only then

you can reach out

and be their friend
