One of my favourite songs...

This is one of my favourite songs. I can appreciate it when I'm happy, learn from it when I'm down and enjoy it in pretty much any mood.

You Gotta Be - Des'ree
Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry

You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
my oh my heh, hey

Don't ask no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
You can't stop it, if you try to
This time it's danger staring you in the face

You gotta be strong, there ain't no other way.

You know, it's interesting. I've heard this song a gazillion times and never really sat down and thought through it. Reading it was very different. It is indeed full of depth! Glad you shared it.
