Gary Valenciano – Shake It Off lyrics

Look around what do you find
People all looking for peace of mind
Where they're looking, do you think they'll ever find
What they're looking for
When they want some more
Let me take you on a funky ride
So you can do your job
And see with your eyes
What the world's gotta give
And how you gotta be
How you gotta walk the talk for all to see

No need to look any further
Exposed yet undercover
Deceived to believe they've got it all together
Then boom, it takes control
Then boom, then what, the sun comes down
Then boom, the means all of the means
Have vanished
It's famished
It's a setback, step back, forward
All the way back

[Chorus 1]
When you're out on the floor
Just get down n' get movin'
Across the floor and shake it off
I say, shake it off

[Chorus 2:]
Shake it
Shake it off
And shake
And shake it off
And shake, shake, shake it off
And shake, shake it off

It's a mindset!
Strap yourself in
Ready for the roller coaster ride
Take you on the other side
Ready to see the broad horizon,
Where the sun will rise and
You can go against the flow
And be one of those who's in the know
Of the truth in the word that says to you,
You can do all things when He's in you,
Let go of the extra cargo
Time to get up and grow, bro
Stand up, stand firm, stand strong
Don't sit out and wait too long
Watch out now, the enemy is like
A lion waiting for the opportunity to lie

[Repeat Chorus 1 & 2]
[Repeat Chorus]

(Shake it) I'm gonna hurt so bad,
So many other questions in your head
We're movin' closer to makin' it look right
Maybe it's time to trust, give it up, yeah
Now let me take your hand, yeah
We'll try to separate questions in your head
Just move it closer to makin' it look right
Thinkin' you can find what you know you've been after

(Shake it now, all you guys, come on shake it! Oh yeah just shakin' it,
Other side, other side, other side now!)
Shake it off, your mind, your heart, your body, and your soul now!
[Repeat Chorus 2]
[Repeat Chorus 1]

Woo! Ugh!
