Listen as your day unfoldes
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry

You gotta be You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My oh my, hey...

You gotta be You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Time asks no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
You can't stop it, if you try to
This time it's danger staring you in the face
Oh oh oh

Remember listen as your day unfoldes
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
My oh my hey hey hey...

You gotta be You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day


You gotta be bold you gotta be bad you gotta be wise, no never sad you gotta be hard but not to too hard,
All I know, all I know love will save the day

You gotta be You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

    Each one of us at some time in our lives will be faced w/ the challenge of confronting the truth. And only those who dare to be bold, strong, wise, etc. Will be able to live life in the freedom that truth brings. We must trust god's direction which will always take us to a level of intimacy far beyond anything we could have ever achieved on our own. Fear brings torment, so be bold and face whatever lurks in the shadows of our lives. Things will work out!!!

    Life is a challenge. When it calls on you, don't turn away from it. Meet it with all you're worth and then some.

    You gotta be- it's a song about believing in yourself, about never giving up no matter what. The lyrics are meaningful and deep- it's about loving yourself. And it's pretty.
