Spread Your Wings (Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes)

[Verse 1:] Young woman confused Young woman abused You must understand It's never too late to, lose who you are And choose who you are supposed to be Supposed to become You've been in and out Up and down, back and forth Backwards around Not a friend, not a mother, not a father Just God and you should make a choice What you ought to do What matters most Who you are to you Opinions of the old and young Shouldn't matter to you Take advice think it over twice Make a choice that helps you sleep at night It's decent, but recently Things have shown us We have done the wrong things often Never suicide, that's the easy route There's always another way out Think about it (think about it) [Chorus (2x)] You can give up Or you can get up Just don't let what you need pass by Spread your wings to the sky Let you soul fall in love You can fly [Verse 2:] Now see if you went through life with your eyes closed You never would'a known there was a high road Let people get the best of you and get mad at them Instead of bein' mad at yourself You're only number one in your life And you will decide if it goes right Every time you digress Defeat your progress Feed you knowledge, but you must digest The controversy yo can get personal They don't understand till the role reversal Seekin' fame, play their games Gave a whole lot for a whole little gain Push comes to shove Do you push or shove? When the choice is yours Do you leave or you love? All the tears you cried, you're dyin' inside When will you decide to survive [Chorus (2x)] You can give up Or you can get up Just don't let what you need pass by Spread your wings to the sky Let your soul fall in love You can fly Fly Fly Fly Fly [4x] You can give up Or you can get up Just don't let what you need pass by Spread your wings to the sky Let you soul fall in love You can fly
