[ Tab from: ]
We are magic, he said
But don't let it all go to your head
'Cause I bet if you had it all figured out
Then you'd never get out of bed
Well, no doubt
Of all the thing's that I've read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping to be
I keep on keeping it real
'Cause it keeps getting easier, you'll see

He's the reason that I'm laughing
Even if there's no one else
He said you've got to love yourself

He said you shouldn't mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble on to something better
Remember that it's humble that you seek
You got all the skill you need
You got something
Call it gumption, call it anything you want

Because when you play the fool now
You're only fooling everyone else
You're learning to love yourself

There's no price to pay
When you give it what you take
That's why it's easy to thank you

Let's say take a break from our day
And get back to the old garage
Because life's too short anyway
But at least it's better than average
As long as you got me and I got you
You know we got a lot to go around
I'll be your friend, your other brother
Another love to come and comfort you

And I'll keep reminding
If it's the only thing I ever do
I will always love you

It's true, our love is true
It's you I love, it's you I love, it's you, it's you I love
It's true, our love is true, our love is true, it's you I love
It's you I love, it's you I love, it's you, it's you I love

Climb up over the top
Survey the state of the soul
You've got to find out for yourself
Whether or not you're truly trying
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it, take control
Inevitably wind up finding for yourself
All the strengths that you have inside still rising
(All the strengths that you have inside of you)
