Gotta Get Up

Gotta get up keep on moving
U can do this
Gotta get up keep on moving
U can do this

Verse I
U are a treasure no words can measure
So strong and bold – worth more than gold

But know this life will knock u down
When U least expect it
Just get your feet on solid ground
To the source you’re connected

Gotta get up keep on moving
U can do this – One step at a time
Gotta get up keep on moving
U can do this – Living your best life

Verse II
It’s time to build legacies – be all that we can be
Now U will make mistakes – get out of your own way

Bend if U must – but don’t you break
Embrace your fears
Just get it done no matter how long it takes
