Get Up!

from by Andrew Shearer

lyrics

It's no wonder you're alone
When all you do is sit at home
Nursing all these dreams
And wondering what they mean

You're a master of disguise
And you tell little white lies
You're a moderate success
But really your life is a mess
If you ain't going to show who you are
You ain't ever going to get very far

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been in the audience for far too long

Fallen between two lives
In the gulf between inside and outside
You've got to make the two coincide
Or you're only ever going to get by
If you ain't going to show who you are
You ain't ever going to get very far

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been in the audience for far too long

Are you just going to waste you're time?
What you going to say when you meet the deadline?
You know a lack of confidence isn't a defence
You know a lack of confidence isn't any, any defence

If you're scared of ridicule
Then you'll always going to think you're a fool
But if you don't have a go
Then you'll never ever going to know
If you ain't going to show who you are
You ain't ever going to get very far

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been hiding too long
Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been in the audience too long

Get Up!
Get Up!
Get Up!
Get Up!

Get Up! Get Up!
And sing your song
Get Up! Get Up!
You've been hiding too long
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
Get Up! Get Up! Get Up!
