lyrics

VERSE 1

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
She's a coward youʼll find
We're like Itzak Perlman's strings
We're broke but we can play
So get up everybody let's dance
It's time to seize the day

CHORUS
Thereʼs 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 youʼll find
With the patience of Jobe we can win
Win through this pain
Now get up everybody
Do you hear what I say?

CHORUS
Thereʼs 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
