You Gotta Be Lyrics - Des'ree

Review The Song (16)



Des'ree
Gotta Be
Big Sing 2008

Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers they may cause your tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted don't be 'shamed 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
Read the books your father read
sponsored links
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
he-eh-y

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

Time asks no questions it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning can't stop it if you tried to
The best part is danger staring you in the face


Remember, listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try to keep your head up to the sky
Lovers they may cause your tears
Go ahead release your fears
My, oh, my
He-ey-y

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

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

Got to be bold, Got to be bad
Got to be wise, no never sad
Got to be hard, not too too hard
All I know is love will save the day

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
Oooh, yeah yeah yeah

(Continue until fade)

Thank you Des'ree for a song that has come from the heart. I listened to this song during the darkest days in my life (suffering from clinical depression) and now (that my mind is clearer) I can see why it had such a positive impact on my illness. Thank God for people like you in the world. Happier now.

Awesome song. Saw some kids perform it at the Cairns Eisteddfodd (Is that how you spell it?) and had to find the lyrics. [Note to the writer: More emphasis in the chorus.] That's the only change I have to make, so it must be good! (LOL XD) The Dragon's Affirmative.

It shows you all you need is yourself and no one can bring you down!!

Find the truth | Reviewer: Andrew Johnson | 5/9/07

A good anthem this song is. In 2007, we do need very much to face our fears - stand up to those who oppress us. We need to change the world, because 9/11 Was An Inside Job, my friends. Now's the time to wake up.

bold, beutiful and inspiring | Reviewer: Pearl | 5/7/07

I am just a girl full with dreams... I wish I could be somewhere I loves or someone I desire to be... This song bring faith to me that I could do whatever I want, just spread my wings and try... Maybe I will fail, but it won't stop me and at least I tried to achieve my dreams... Thank you, des'ree...
