Lyrics

GOTTA BE REAL

Now I can see, there’s something, of me in you
You grew up feeling that you
that had everything to prove
Too young to know, that you hadn’t a clue
Cuz there’s more to life, than just win or lose


Everyone will tell you what they
think you should know,
But try to figure out, this life on your own
Sometimes you have to get lost
to find your way home
To know, that you're never alone

1st CHORUS:

Oh, oh You Gotta Be Real
If you’re ever gonna, free your heart
Blow a kiss to the past, to make a fresh start
Oh, oh You Gotta Be Real
If you’re ever gonna, find your peace
Slow it down, gotta take time to breathe

When you dig down deep,
you’ll find riches in the dirt
You’ll never grow
Until Your fears Are unearthed
We’re lost within our never-ending search 'til we
Fill our voids from all of our hurts
So, listen to your voice and the words that you say
There’s much to learn from the roles we all play
Perfection’s just a losing game
A perfect cover for masking one’s pain

2nd CHORUS:

Oh, oh You Gotta Be Real
If you’re ever gonna, free your heart
Step out of the dark and into the stars
Oh, oh You Gotta Be Real
If you’re ever gonna, find your peace
Live your own truth and know (that) you are free

3rd CHORUS:

Oh, oh You Gotta Be Real
If you’re ever gonna, free your heart
Be your self, be your best work of art
Oh, oh You Gotta Be Real
If you’re ever gonna, find your peace
Build your dreams, to be your legacy
