Listen as your day unfolds
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
Is love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Read the books your father read
Try and solve the puzzles
In your own sweet time

Some may have more cash than you
Others have a different view
My, oh, my, hey, hey , hey

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
Is 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
The best part is
Danger staring you in the face

Ohh, well then listen as your day unfolds
(You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold)
Challenge what the future holds
(You gotta be wiser)

Try to keep your head up to the sky
(You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough)
(You gotta be stronger)

Lovers, they may cause you tears
(You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm)
Go ahead release your fears
(You gotta stay together)

My, oh, my, hey, hey, hey
(All I know, all I know)
(Is love will save the day)

(Well then listen as your day unfolds)
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
(Challenge what the future holds)
You gotta be wiser

(Try to keep your head up to the sky)
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough
You gotta be stronger

(Lovers, they may cause you tears)
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
(Go ahead release your fears)
You gotta stay together

(My, oh, my, hey, hey, hey)
All I know, all I know
Is love will save the day

Love will save the day
Well, all I know, all I know
You gotta get yourself together
Love will save the day

You gotta keep your head to the sky
Love will save the day
Because the world will keep on spinning
Love will save the day

Love, love, love will save the day
Love, love, love will save the day
Love will save the day

Love, love, love will save the day
Love will save the day
