You've Got To


Well...
Hmmm.
Hmmmmm...
You've got to block out all those warnings,
Of a doom that comes.
You've got to,
Stop them in your head.
You've got to,
Step away from the voices of dread.

You've got to block out all those warnings,
Of a doom that comes.
You've got to,
Stop them in your mind.
You've got to,
Keep faith with you all the time.

Open the door,
To welcome the presence of hope.
Allow it in,
And remove those burdens from shoulders sloped.

You've got to,
Hmmm.
Hmmmmm...
Keep faith all the time.
You've got to,
Keep that in your mind.

You've got to,
Block out all those warnings of a doom that comes.
You've got to,
Not welcome them.
You've got to,
Keep faith all the time.
In your mind to overcome.

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
