Wake Up!


Wake up, walk to the river
Wade right in, don't stop to deliberate or hesitate
It's not the time to change your mind.
Stand up and then deliver, all you got
Don't stop to consider consequences

That might say this time you've lost your mind.

Your fruit is ripe for the taking, Your cake is already baking,
Your life is ready for shaking off all them blues
That's stopping you, from being the true you inside of you.

Take hold, then reconfigure every thought that acts like a trigger
Trapping you within that south bound lane that leads to pain.
Take heart, change your demeanor, feed your soul become a believer
In the possibility that life can end your strife

Your love is ready and waiting, Your dreams are already waking,
Your life is ready for shaking off all them blues
That's stopping you, from being the true you inside of you.
