I shed my skin
And set aside this self-made darkness
'N walk on into the light
I'm sick of this Prison
I been calling my life
I finally found out the gates of hell are locked from the inside
Just like Moses
Headed for the Promised Land
We don't get to know where we're goin'
We only know where we've been
[Hope]
Whever you gotta start, ya start
[Faith]
Whatever you gotta leave, you leave
[Life]
Sometimes you're gonna hit the mark
[Love]
Sometimes you're gonna take the next best thing
[Joy]
Whatever you wanta start, ya start
[Time]
Sometimes you're gonna hit the mark
[Trust]
Sometimes you gotta scream
CHORUS
If it's about joy
If it's about life
If it's about love
It's about time we get started
If it's about trust
If it's about hope
If it's about us
It's about time we get started
We don't get forever
We just get now or never
To make the best or the worst of the time that we got
There's power in this groove
And I surrender to the river
It's takin' me to
I'll learn to swim
I'm getting in
I'm getting wet
I may be drownin'
But I ain't dead yet
[Hope]
Whever you gotta start, ya start
[Faith]
Whatever you gotta leave, you leave
[Life]
Sometimes you're gonna hit the mark
[Love]
Sometimes you're gonna take the next best thing
[Joy]
Whatever you wanta start, ya start
[Time]
Sometimes you're gonna hit the mark
[Trust]
Sometimes you gotta scream
REPEAT CHORUS
Oh baby
It's all right
You only gotta face yourself
To make it to the other side
Oh baby you don't know what you'll find
Til you tear down those walls
And make up your mind
REPEAT CHORUS
I been tryin'
Prayin' cryin
Lord, what's it gonna take
Step by step you go on
Knowin' that you hold on
It's just about time
