When you've got what it takes
You've got nothing to hide
You've got miles of feelings
And acres of pride
You've got it
You've really got it

When you know who you are
Then you live what you feel
You give what you can
And it's good when you've really got it
And when you've got it

(*) Let it out
Let it show
Let'em know
Inside you've got it
Let it shine like a fine tomorrow
For when you do
The feeling comes back to you
What a difference it makes
When you've got what it takes
What a difference it makes
When you've got it

When you're sure of your heart
Then you give it away
And love is a promise
You keep every day
You know it
And when you know it

You begin to believe
You'll do more than survive
That the best part of being is being alive
You feel it
And when you feel it

Repeat (*)

When a difference it makes
When you've got what it takes
What a difference it makes
When you've got it

When a difference it makes
When you've got what it takes
What a difference it makes
When you've got it everyday
