Song For Soul: Get It Together

This is for all the people who have been hurt, mistreated and abused by their closest ones. This is for all the people who have had or may still need to get it together. Here are some verses that helped me and reminded me to get it together.

“Dark future ahead of me. That’s what they say. I’d be starving if I ate all the lies they fed. ‘Cause I’ve been redeemed from your anguish and pain.

A miracle child I’m floating on a cloud. ‘Cause the words that come from your mouth you’re the first to hear. Speak words of beauty and you will be there. No matter what anybody says, what matters most is what you think of yourself.

Get it together. You want to heal your body, you have to heal your heart. Whatsoever you sow you will reap. Get it together.”

India Arie - Get It Together

Complete Lyrics

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
Kept it inside, didn’t tell no one else
Didn’t even want to admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way
Get it together
You want to heal your body
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together
You can fly fly
Dark future ahead of me
That’s what they say
I’d be starving if I ate all the lies they fed
Cause I’ve been redeemed from your anguish and pain
A miracle child I’m floating on a cloud
Cause the words that come from your mouth
You’re the first to hear
Speak words of beauty and you will be there
No matter what anybody says
What matters most is what you think of yourself
Get it together
You want to heal your body
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together
The choice is yours
No matter what it is
To choose life is to choose to forgive
You don’t have to try
To hurt him and break his pride
To shake that weight off
And you will be ready to fly
One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your friends
Thought it will never change but this time moved on
An ugly duckling grew up to be a swan
And now your chest burns and your back aches
Because now the years are showing up on your face
But you’ll never be happy
And you’ll never be whole
Until you see the beauty in growing old
Get it together
You want to heal your body
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together
