But Till That Day, I Said You Got To Keep The Faith...

If ou don't already know, I get a huge kick out of songs and song lyrics. And since today I'm in a very good mood (Jia came to visit, I've finished my Property tutorial - well almost, I had dinner with my juniors at PGP, I have downloaded 3 more eps of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, I have had a good long chat on MSN with Ningz and Kai, I have had a little SMS conversation with Bert about his impending BMT), you all get happy lyrics.

This must be the happiest song I know. And wonderfully uplifting.

"Keep The Faith"
-- Michael Jackson


If you call out loud, will it get inside?
Through the heart of your surrender; to your alibis
And you can say the words like you understand
But the power's in believing, so give yourself a chance

'Cause you can climb the highest mountain, swim the deepest sea
All you need is the will to want it, and a little self-esteem

So keep the faith, don't let nobody turn you round
You got to know when it's good to go to get your dreams up off the ground
So keep the faith, baby, yeah
Because it's just a matter of time before your confidence will win out
Believe in yourself no matter what it's gonna take
You can be a winner but you gotta keep the faith

Gon' keep it brother, you got it

And when you think of trust does it lead you home?
To a place that you only dream of when you're all alone
And you can go by feel instead of circumstance
But the power's in believing, so give yourself a chance

I know that you can sail across the water
Float across the sky, high
Any road that you take will get you there if you only try

So keep the faith, don't let nobody take you down, brother
Just keep your eyes on the prize and your feet flat on the ground
So keep the faith, baby, yeah
Because it's just a matter of time before your confidence will win out
I told my brother how to do the thing right
Lift up your head and show the world you got pride
Go for what you want don't let them get in your way
You can be a winner but you got to keep the faith

Gon' keep it brother, you got it

I know that keeping the faith means never giving up on love
But the power that love has to make it right...
Makes it, makes it right

So keep the faith, don't let nobody turn you round, brother
You got to know when it's good to go and get your dreams up off of the ground
So keep the faith, baby, yeah
Because it's just a matter of time before your confidence will win out

Better stand up and act like you wanna do right
Don't play the fool for the rest of your life
Work on it brother and you'll make it someday
Go for what you want and don't forget the faith
Look at yourself and what you're doing right now
Stand back a minute just to check yourself out
Straighten up your life and how you're living each day
Get yourself together 'cause you got to keep the faith

Don't let nobody take you down brother
Just keep your eyes on the prize and your feet flat on the ground
So keep the faith, baby, yeah
Because it's just a matter of time before your confidence will win out

Lift up your mind before your mind gets blown
Some things in life you're best just leave them alone
Go for what you want don't let it get in your way
You can make it happen but you got to keep the faith

Gon' keep it brother; you got to keep the faith
Yeah, keep the faith
Gon' keep it sista; you got to keep the faith

I told my brother how to do the thing right
Lift up your head and show the world you got pride
Go for what you want don't let them get in your way
You can be a winner if you keep the faith
Straighten out yourself and get your mind on track
Dust off your butt and get your self-respect back
You've known me long enough to know that I don't play
Take it like you want it but you got to keep the faith

Don't let nobody take you down
Just keep your eyes on the prize and your feet flat on the ground

So keep the faith, baby, yeah
Because it's just a matter of time before your confidence will win out

But till that day, I said you gotta keep the faith
