Genesis – It's Gonna Get Better lyrics
Released as b-side of "mama" 12" single, 1983.


Reach out, hands in the air,
Don't care just what they're saying
Hold out, just keep on hoping against hope
That it's gonna get better
Don't worry, there's no hurry for you, for me,
Everything's gonna come around
Shout out, someone will listen to you, to me,
Someone's gonna see

He calls me over and, calls me brother and i know
Always fighting and moonlighting and, well it never ends
In the city, if you're all alone
There's a sister and she's standing next to her man
In the doorways and in the hallways and
She don't really care, it's the city and she's all alone

So reach out, hands in the air
Don't care just what they're saying
Hold out, just keep on hoping against hope,
That it's gonna get better
Don't worry, there's no hurry for you, for me,
Everything's gonna come around
Shout out, someone will listen to you, to me,
Someone's gonna see, yeah

Well everywhere you go you, you live in the shadow of fear
In the darkness you feel the sharpness of steel
And it's always there, in the city, and you're all alone

So reach out, hands in the air
Don't care just what they're saying
Hold out, just keep on hoping against hope,
That it's gonna get better
Don't worry, there's no hurry for you, for me,
Everything's gonna come around
Shout out, someone will listen to you, to me
Someone's gonna see...

If it's gonna get better, it starts with a feeling
If it's gonna get better, it's gonna take time
If it's gonna get better, we've gotta start now
Cos i know, everybody can feel it
And i know, everybody will see it
Cos it shows, and that shows i'm not dreaming
Cos you know, and i know, it's time for change
