When I was a young man, my daddy told me 
a lesson he learned a long time ago 
if you want to have some-one to hold onto 
your gonna have to learn to let go 
You gotta sing, like you don't need the money 
love, like you'll never get hurt 
you gotta dance, like theres nobody watching 
its gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work 
now now here is the one thing I keep forgeting 
when everything is falling apart 
in life as in love I need to remember 
thers such a thing as trying to hard 
You gotta sing, like you don't need the money 
love, like you'll never get hurt 
you gotta dance, like theres nobody watching 
its gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work 
You gotta sing sometimes, like you don't need the money 
love sometimes, like you'll never get hurt 
you gotta dance, dance, dance, like theres nobody watching 
its gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work 
You gotta sing, like you don't need the money 
love, like you'll never get hurt 
you gotta dance, like theres nobody watching 
its gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work 
its gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work
