Written by babyface (1996)Performed by michael jacksonNo sense pretending it’s overHard times just don’t go awayYou gotta take that chip off your shoulderIt’s time you open upHave some faithNothing good ever comes easyAll good things come in due timeYou gotta have something to believe inI’m tellin’ you to open your mindGotta put your heart on the lineIf you wanna make it rightYou’ve got to reach out and tryGotta put your heart on the lineIf you wanna get it rightGotta put it all on the lineYou see yourself in the mirrorAnd you don’t like what you seeAnd things aren’t getting much clearerDon’t you think it’s time you go for a changeDon’t waste your time on the past, no noIt’s time you look to the futureIt’s all right there if you askThis time if you try much harderYou’ll be the best you can beHookIf you wanna make it rightAnd you wanna do it nowThen you gotta learn to tryGonna make it worth your whileNothing in life comes freeAnd that’s just the way it is nowYou gotta go for what you wantYou gotta do what you got to doHook 3 times
