Amy Grant – Wise Up lyrics
Got myself in this situation,
I'm not sure about.
Climbing in where there's temptation,
Can I get back out?
I never can quite find the answer,
The one I want to hear.
The one that justifies my action
Says the coast is clear.
Something on the outside
Says to jump on in,
But something on the inside
Is telling me again,

Chorus:
Better wise up.
Better think twice.
Never leave room for compromise.
You better wise up.
Better get smart.
And use your head to guard your heart.
It's gonna get rough,
So you better wise up.

Take a look at your intentions,
When you have to choose.
Could it be that apprehension,
Might be telling you,
To back off now is better,
So take your heart and run.
But get your thoughts together,
Before they come undone.

(Repeat Chorus)

(You got to wise up.
You got to think twice.
You got to wise up.
You got to. You got to.)

To back off now is better,
So take your heart and run.
But get your thoughts together,
Before they come undone.

(Repeat Chorus)

So you better wise up.
Better think twice.
And never leave room for compromise.
Oh, you better wise up.
Better get smart.
And use your head to guard your heart.
It's gonna get rough,
So you better wise up.

(You got to wise up.
You got to think twice. (Hohhhh!)
You got to wise up. (Oh, yeah!)
You got to. You got to.)

So you better wise up, now....

(You got to wise up.
You got to think twice. (Better wise up, y'all!)
You got to wise up.
You got to. You got to. (Oh, yeah!))

(You got to wise up.
You got to think twice. (Better...)
You got to wise up. (Oh, you better wise up, now....)
You got to. You got to. (Ohhhhh, yeah!!!))

(You got to wise up. (Hoo! Hoo, hoo, hoo, hoooooooo-hoo!!)
You got to think twice.
You got to wise up.
You got to. You got to. (Oh, got to show yo', yeah!))

(You got to wise up.
You got to think twice. (Hoaa!! Oowwwww!!!)
You got to wise up.
You got to. You got to.)
