You Get What You Give
New Radicals Lyrics


One, two
One, two, three, ow

Wake up, kids
We got the dreamers disease
Age fourteen, they got you down on your knees
So polite, we're busy still saying please
Frienemies, who when you're down ain't your friend
Every night we smash a Mercedes-Benz
First we run, and then we laugh 'til we cry

But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light (light)
You feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give

I'm comin' home, baby
You're tops
Give it to me now

4 AM, we ran a miracle mile
We're flat broke
But hey, we do it in style
The bad rich
God's flying in for your trial

But when the night is falling
You cannot find a friend (friend)
You feel your tree is breaking
Just bend

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give

This whole damn world could fall apart
You'll be okay, follow your heart
You're in harm's way, I'm right behind
Now say you're mine

You've got the music in you
Don't let go
You've got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don't give up
You've got a reason to live
Can't forget
We only get what we give

Don't let go
I feel the music in you
Don't let go
Fly high, high

What's real can't die
You only get what you give
You're gonna get what you give
Don't give up
Just don't be afraid to leave

Health insurance, rip off lying
FDA, big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around, we'll kick your asses

Don't let go
One dance left
Don't give up
Can't forget
Don't let go

I am 20 years clean. I lost my brother, both of my parents, my sister. Everyone thought I would turn to drugs again but I didn't. This song is so uplifting! Thank you, New Radicals!

A. W.

You rock !!!!!

ReBecca Caudell

I'm so proud of you, Laurie! My 25-yr-old son is a recovering addict. He's been an addict since the age of 14, he told me. I somehow had no idea, & I can't understand how I could've missed it. I've been at the e.r. a few times in praying & in tears, while the drs & nurses worked to save his life. Like you, he's been through & has seen things no child should. Prayers & love to you, sweetheart. You've got this! ❤

Laurie Gray

God bless you! Sorry for your loss! Congratulations on being sober for so long. It's a better way of life.

Bruce Grant

It's fantastic that you stayed clean Laurie. I lost my Mother to suicide just before I got sober and I managed to stay sober. Working on 29 yrs.

Y’all ever hear a song that takes you back to a particular moment in your life and it makes you want to cry and smile at the same time? Well that’s this song for me… I’d love to be a kid again just for ONE day… I had it so much better than I realized… I love all y’all !!!

@Hoo Hargh Thank you.. I'm about to turn 30, and I don't feel much different than when I graduated high school! My taste has changed, I don't put up with people, but other than that, I don't feel like an "Adult" AT ALL. I still feel 17 years old and have no idea what I'm doing with my life, but I'm going to make it work. Gotta make my loved ones, and myself, proud. Thank you for writing this.
