This is one of those songs where I say, “you,” in a sort of instructional way towards myself.
You don’t know when it comes, cause it’s here before you’re ready. But if you walk it out the door, you’ll be begging it back on your knees. So get on up now, honey. Get yourself up now, honey. Rise up, now, honey, and don’t walk it out the door. It’s just a flash in the eye, a second before you say goodbye. And there may be no way to know, but the time seems right, so here, let’s go. And sign up now, honey, sign yourself up now, honey. Rise up now, honey, and don’t walk it out the door. Cause it may not come again in your lifetime and it may not come again with your eyes wide. So notice yourself and see where you are – the opportunity may not be far away. Get on up now – Far away – Rise up now – Far away – Get on up – It may not be far away.
