You Gotta Be Lyrics


Listen as your day unfolds, challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears, stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser

You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger


You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Herald what your mother said
Reading the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view, my oh my, heh, hey
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Time asks no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
You can't stop it, if you try to
This time it's danger staring you in the face
Remember, listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears, my oh my heh, hey, hey
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

You Gotta Be

Background[edit]
Described by Stuart Elliott in The New York Times as "an infectiously sunny tune about the
affirmative powers of self-confidence,"[1]"You Gotta Be" according to Des'ree is, like all the songs on
its parent album, "about having the inner strength to figure out who you are" with "You Gotta Be"
specifically being "born out of me stopping myself and thinking everyday how you gotta be
something. You have to be cool and calm in [one] situation, and then you have to be bold and strong
in another situation."[2] Des'ree drew inspiration for "You Gotta Be" from the Shakti
Gawain book Creative Visualization which had abetted the singer's recovery from a painful romantic
break-up; "I've always been blindly optimistic, and that [book] helped me rise from my melancholia,"
explains Des'ree who it is said "swears by daily affirmations." [3]
"You Gotta Be" was released several times in the United Kingdom: first in April 1994, then in 1995,
and in 1999 in a remixed version because of its use in the 1999 Ford Focus advertising campaign
and following the success of Des'ree's previous singles "Life" and "Kissing You". The latter release of
"You Gotta Be" charted in its highest position out of all three releases in the United Kingdom,
peaking at No. 10. This version, entitled the "1999 Mix" was added to a re-issue of her third studio
album Supernatural. The 1995 release peaked at No. 5 in the United States and is the most popular
version of the song. The remixed version of the song was released in 1998 in Spain, and went to No.
1 there.

Media appearances[edit]
In April 1994, it was used by Sky Movies, for their summer preview commercial. Also, in March
1995, ABC-TV began airing an ad campaign for Good Morning America, aimed at attracting a
younger demographic and also boosting male viewership, in which Des'ree's "You Gotta Be" played
under scenes of "Americans immersed in morning rituals: commuters rushing, a young man shaving,
school-bound children" intercut with shots of the Good Morning America hosts.[1]
In Italy, the song became popular after it was chosen as the soundtrack of some TV adverts,
including those of Breil in 1996 and Ford Focus of 2000.[4][5] In Australia, circa early 2000s, this song
was used in a Westpac bank advert.
The year it was released, this song was used for the ending credits of The Next Karate Kid.
The song was used as a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day promotion for PBS Kids from 1999 to 2004.
A reworked version of this song was used in the Big Sing 2008. The Big Sing is to raise money for
Childline by hundreds of schools singing this song at the same time across Ireland, England and
Wales. If the number of children participating is big enough, the Big Sing will make it into the
Guinness Book of World Records 2010.[6]
The song was used in the movie The Object of My Affection.

Music video[edit]
The music video is filmed in black and white. In 1995, it was nominated in the category of "Best
Female Video" at that year's MTV Video Music Awards, but lost to Madonna's"Take a Bow".

Other versions[edit]
"You Gotta Be" has been covered by Ethel Ennis on her 1998 album If Women Ruled the World,
by Natalie Cole on her 2006 album Leavin', by British/Japanese singer MiChi on her 2008
album MiChi Madness, by Japanese emo band Nature Living on their album 2008 album After
All. Patti Austin recorded "You Gotta Be" as her contribution to the 2003 album Church Songs of
Soul and Inspiration, with the track being included on Austin's 2011 album release Sound
Advice. Ronan Parke covered this song on his 2011 debut album Ronan Parke.
"Never Give Up"

Visions that can change the world trapped inside an ordinary girl
She looks just like me too afraid to dream out loud
And though it's simple your idea, it won't make sense to everybody
You need courage now If you're gonna persevere
To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you're called
So don't be afraid to face the world against all odds
[Chorus]
Keep the dream alive don't let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don't stop
And never give up, don't ever give up on you
Don't give up
Every victory comes in time, work today to change tomorrow
It gets easier, who's to say that you can't fly
Every step you take you get, closer to your destination
You can feel it now, don't you know you're almost there?
To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you're called
So don't be afraid to face the world against all odds
[Chorus]
Keep the dream alive don't let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don't stop
And never give up, don't ever give up on you
[Bridge:]
Who holds the pieces to complete the puzzle?
The answer that can solve a mystery
The key that can unlock your understanding
It's all inside of you, you have everything you need yeahhhh

Sooooo, keep the dream alive don't let it die


If something deep inside, keeps inspiring you to try don't stop
And never give up, don't ever give up on you
Sometimes life can place a stumbling block in your way
But you're gotta keep the faith, bring what's deep inside your heart yeah your
Heart to the light
And never give up Don't ever give up on you
Nooo don't give up,
No, no, no, no don't give up
Oh, no, no, no, no don't...give...up
