You turned away when I looked you in the eye,
And hesitated when I asked if you were alright,
Seems like you're fighting for your life,
But why? oh why?
Wide awake in the middle of your nightmare,
You saw it comin' but it hit you outta no where,
And there's always scars
When you fall that far

We lose our way,
We get back up again
It's never too late to get back up again,
One day you gonna shine again,
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever,
Lose our way,
We get back up again,
So get up, get up,
You gonna shine again,
Never too late to get back up again,
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever
[May be knocked down but not out forever]

You rolled out at the dawning of the day
Heart racin' as you made you little get away,
It feels like you've been runnin' all your life
But, why? Oh why?

So you've pulled away from the love that wou'd've been there,
You start believin' that your situation's unfair

But there's always scars,
When you fall that far

We lose our way,
We get back up again
Never too late to get back up again,
One day, you gonna shine again,
You may be knocked down but not out forever,
Lose our way, we get back up again,
So get up, get up
You gonna shine again
It's never too late, to get back up again
You may be knocked down, but not out forever,
May be knocked down, but not out forever!

This is love callin', love callin', out to the broken,
This is love callin'.
This is love callin', love callin', out to the broken
This is love callin'.
This is love callin', love callin',
I am so broken
This is love callin' love callin

Lose our way, [way way way ay ay ay]
We get back up, [get back up again]
It's never too late [late late late ate ate ate]
You may be knocked down but not out forever!

Lose our way,
We get back up again,
So get up get up
You gonna shine again
Never too late to get back up again
You may be knocked down,
But not out forever,

This is love [lose our way] callin' love callin' [get back up again]
To the broken
This is love [never too late] callin'
[May be knocked down but not out forever]
This is love [lose our way] callin' love callin' [we get back up again]
To the broken
This is love [never too late] callin'
[May be knocked down but not out forever]

This is love callin' love callin'
Out to the broken,
This is love callin'...

    The highlight of "Tonight", and arguably one of the best in his solo career, Get Back Up proves how good an artist tobymac really is. It is very inspiring, and makes its listeners want to persevere. Mixed the inspiring lyrics in with the groovy beat/music and his awesome vocals, this song is definately worthy of a Grammy! Great job, toby!

    This song really fits my personality. I was so down before. I felt the feeling of being so numb and so depressed. But eventually God is really good for he lifted me up again and given me the strength I need to face the trials that I'm facing. To those discourage people. Try to listen to christian musics. Its really relaxing.

    I was in the Hospital, and the doctors came to my room, suspecting of some kind of cancer in my body, as human being I felt weak but God has everything under control no matter what is the cirmcunstance and after a series of tests everything came out clean!
    So I'm up testifying his miracles in my life!
