When you've got what it takes

You've got nothing to hide

You've got miles of feelings

And acres of pride

You've got it

You've really got it



When you know who you are

Then you live what you feel

You give what you can

And it's good when you've really got it

And when you've got it



(*) Let it out

Let it show

Let'em know

Inside you've got it

Let it shine like a fine tomorrow

For when you do

The feeling comes back to you

What a difference it makes

When you've got what it takes

What a difference it makes

When you've got it



When you're sure of your heart

Then you give it away

And love is a promise

You keep every day

You know it

And when you know it



You begin to believe

You'll do more than survive

That the best part of being is being alive

You feel it

And when you feel it



Repeat (*)



When a difference it makes

When you've got what it takes

What a difference it makes

When you've got it



When a difference it makes

When you've got what it takes

What a difference it makes

When you've got it everyday
