Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
 
Love hurts
Now you’re the girl
Who’s left with no words
Your heart’s a balloon
But then it bursts
It doesn’t take a canon, just a pin
Your skin’s no covering

And resistance
Love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies of assistants
The amorous, the glamorous
A kiss, a fist
Listen to this, oh

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

I can sing it to you all night
All night
If I could, I’d make it alright
Alright
Nothing’s stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight

So fight back
Don’t take it lying down
You gotta bite back
The face of liberty’s starting to crack
She had a plan and then she got a smack
In the mouth and it all went south

Like freedom
The slaves are looking for someone to lead ‘em
The master’s looking for someone to need him
The promised land is there for those who need it most
And Lincoln’s ghost said

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Oh yeah

I can sing it to you all night
All night
If I could, I’d make it alright
Alright
Nothing stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight

So get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
A pop song
Get out of your own way
