lyrics

Verse
Tired of being kind of blue
all the time
Need a change
Change of heart
and of mind

That black dog runs us down, chases us
There's nowhere to hide

But we'll beat that black dog out of sight
The's a coward you’ll find

We're like Itzhak Perlman's strings
We're broke but we can play

So get up everybody
It's time to seize the day

Chorus
There’s no time for feeling lonely
this malaise don't have to own you
you're too strong for that

So stand up, and get moving
join us, we're grooving
It's where the joy is at

Don't say you can't
I know that you can
if you just take small steps

Each moment is new
you know what to do
if you just make that move
feel the fear and push on through

Verse 2
Overlooked and rejected
had knocks to our pride

But we'll beat all the doubters in time;
just jealous you’ll find

With the patience of Job
we can win
win through this pain

Now get up everybody
Do you hear what I say?

Chorus
There’s no time for feeling lonely
this malaise don't have to own you
you're too strong for that

So stand up, and get moving
join us, we're grooving
It's where the joy is at

Don't say you can't
I know that you can
if you just take small steps

Each moment is new
you know what to do
if you just make that move
feel the fear and push on through
