Get It Together Lyrics

by India Arie

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
Kept it inside, didn't tell no one else
Didn't even wanna admit it to yourself

And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way

Get it together
You wanna heal your body
Get it together
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together
You can fly, fly

Dark future ahead of me, that's what they say
I'd be starving if I ate all the lies they fed
'Cause I've been redeemed from your anguish and pain
A miracle child I'm floating on a cloud

'Cause the words that come from your mouth, you're the first to hear
Speak words of beauty and you will be there
No matter what anybody says
What matters most is what you think of yourself

Get it together
You wanna heal your body
Get it together
You have to heal your heart, yeah
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

The choice is yours, no matter what it is
To choose life is to choose to forgive
You don't have to try and hurt him and break his pride
Just shake that weight off and you'll be ready to fly

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your friends
Thought it would never change but as time moved on
That ugly duckling grew up to be a swan

And now your chest burns and your back aches
Because now the years are showing up on your face
But you'll never be happy and you'll never be whole
Until you see the beauty in growing old

Get it together
You wanna heal your body
Get it together
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

Get it together
You wanna heal your body
Get it together
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can live or you can die
You know that life is a choice you make
You can give or you can take
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
