Get Back Up

  • You turned away when I looked you in the eye,
    And hesitated when I asked if you were alright,
    Seems like you're fighting for your life,
    But why? Oh why?
    Wide awake in the middle of your nightmare,
    You saw it comin' but it hit you outta nowhere,
    And there's always scars
    When you fall that far

    We lose our way,
    We get back up again
    It's never too late to get back up again,
    One day you're gonna shine again,
    You may be knocked down,
    But not out forever,
    Lose our way,
    We get back up again,
    So get up, get up,
    You gonna shine again,
    Never too late to get back up again,
    You may be knocked down,
    But not out forever
    (May be knocked down but not out forever)

    You're rolled out at the dawning of the day
    Heart racin' as you made you little getaway,
    It feels like you've been runnin' all your life
    But, why? Oh why?

    So you've pulled away from the love that would've been there,
    You start believin' that your situation's unfair
    But there's always scars,
    When you fall that far

    We lose our way,
    We get back up again
    Never too late to get back up again,
    One day, you're gonna shine again,
    You may be knocked down but not out forever,
    Lose our way, we get back up again,
    So get up, get up
    You gonna shine again
    It's never too late, to get back up again
    You may be knocked down, but not out forever,
    May be knocked down, but not out forever!

    This is love callin', love callin', out to the broken,
    This is love callin'.
    This is love callin', love callin', out to the broken
    This is love callin'.
    This is love callin', love callin',
    I am so broken
    This is love callin' love callin

    We lose our way, (way way way ay ay ay)
    We get back up, (get back up again)
    It's never too late (late late late ate ate ate)
    You may be knocked down but not out forever!

    Lose our way,
    We get back up again,
    So get up get up
    You gonna shine again
    Never too late to get back up again
    You may be knocked down,
    But not out forever,

    This is love (lose our way) callin' love callin' (get back up again)
    To the broken
    This is love (never too late) callin'
    (May be knocked down but not out forever)
    This is love (lose our way) callin' love callin' (we get back up again)
    To the broken
    This is love (never too late) callin'
    (May be knocked down but not out forever)

    This is love callin' love callin'
    Out to the broken,
    This is love callin' Writer/s: AARON CHARLES RICE, CARY RYAN BARLOWE, JAMES L. MOORE, TOBY MCKEEHAN

  • Kaydie from Cloquet, MnThis is one of my favorite songs, as well as my mom's. The message displayed in this song is so powerful, and really has great meaning. It is never to late to be saved, and comitt yourself to God. God is always there, waiting for you to ask for forgiveness, and for him to enter your heart. I think Toby does a great job explaining life and God's love through this song.
