When your heart is free
It's easy to make a decision
When your head is clear
You know you have good judgment
But when your life is turning topsy turvey
And you have know reasons for what's disturbing
Remember these words my father said to me

(Chorus)
He said: Keep your head up don't say you love him
Walk away from all that is hurting
Find your power you know your strong
Make that step and it will help you along

When your minds at peace
Sleep comes so very peacefully
When you start to dream
There wonderful end so very sweet
But when your life is turning topsy turvey
And you have no answers for what's disturbing
Remember these words a preacher said to me

(Chorus)
He said: Keep your head up don't say you love him
Walk away from all that is hurting
Find your power you know your strong
(Take that step)
Make that step and it will help you along (2x)

Why give up this time you can't win
(You can't win)
Why give up this battle is within
(Is within)
Why stay alone when he gonna do
Why choose him when its time to choose you

Keep your head up don't say you love him
Walk away from all that is hurting
Find your power you know your strong
Make that step it will help you along (2x)

Keep your head up (6x)

    To never look down, no matter what anyone says or does that makes you even think that you cant make it.
