(McCormick)

Isn't it time all of love's bad debts got paid?
Don't be afraid
Isn't it true?
If you don't trust in yourself
You'll trust no-one else
All your favourite memories
Are now your worst enemies
Come on, give 'em a ride
You gotta decide to push them aside
Give it a try

You gotta get yourself to love
She's not the only one
You, you gotta get yourself to love
Why be the lonely one?
Get yourself to love

Take away the things you need to start again
Your heart will never mend
Take away, oh, the chance you have to slip and fall
You will miss it all

Drop your one-part harmonies
For all the haunting melodies
You're so aware
Of the crosses you bear
Don't be so scared
Show that you care

Oh, you, oh, you gotta get yourself to love
She's not the only one
Oh, you, yes you, you gotta get yourself to love
Why be the lonely one?

Oh, you, yeah, you gotta get yourself to love
Yes, love, you gotta love sometime
You, oh, you
Why be the sad and lonely one?
You know
You can do it, yes, you can do it, you can do it for yourself
Yes, you can, oh, don't bend
You can do it, you can do it, you can do it
You can do it for yourself
