Song Lyrics

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

Love hurts
Now you’re the girl who’s left with no words
Your heart’s a balloon but then it bursts
It doesn’t take a canon, just a pin
Your skin’s not covering
And resistance
Love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies of assistants
The amorous, the glamorous
A kiss, a fist, listen to this, oh…

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

I can sing it to you all night, all night
If I could, I’d make it alright, alright
Nothing stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight, your fight.

Fight back
Don’t take it lying down
You gotta bite back
The face of liberty’s starting to crack
She had a plan until she got a smack in the mouth
and it all went south like freedom
The slaves are looking for someone to lead them
The master’s looking for someone to need him
The promised land is there for those who need it most
And Lincoln’s ghost said…

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

I can sing it to you all night, all night
If I could, I’d make it alright, alright
Nothing stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight, your fight…

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
