Show a little inspiration, show a little spark
Show that things that drew me to you an' stole my heart
And tell me somethin' I don't know instead of everything I do
And look at me as if I mean somethin' to you

Our hearts are beating while we sleep, but while we're wide awake
You know the world won't stop and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Show a little passion, baby, show a little style
And show the knack for knowing when and the gift for knowing how
And have a little trust in us when fear obscures the path
You know we got this far, darling, not by luck, but by never turnin' back

Some will call on destiny, but I just call on faith
That the world won't stop and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, to what your heart might say
Everything you got, you got the hard way

Caught up in our little lives, there's not a lot left over
I see what's missin' in your eyes, you're searchin' for that field of clover

So show a little inspiration, show a little spark
Show the world a little light when you show it your heart
We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and your heart might say

Everything we got, we got the hard
Everything we got, we got the hard way
Everything we got, we got the hard way
Because the world won't stop
Hang on, baby
