Michael Jackson - On The Line Lyrics




No sense pretending it's over
Hard times just don't go away
You gotta take that chip off your shoulder
It's time you open up, have some faith

Nothing good ever comes easy
All good things come in due time (yes it does)
You gotta have something to believe in
I'm telling you to open your mind, hee

Gotta put your heart on the line
If you wanna make it right
You've got to reach out and try
Gotta put your heart on the line
If you wanna get it right
Gotta put it all on the line

You see yourself in the mirror
And you don't like what you see
And things aren't getting much clearer
Don't you think it's time you go for a change, oh

Don't waste your time on the past, no no
It's time you look to the future, oh
It's all right there if you ask
This time if you try much harder
You'll be the best that you can be, oh

Gotta put your heart on the line
If you wanna make it right
You've got to reach out and try
Gotta put your heart on the line
If you wanna get it right
Gotta put it all on the line

If you wanna make it right
And you wanna do it now
Then you gotta learn to try
And you'll make it work somehow
No, nothing in life comes free
And that's just the way it is now
You gotta go for what you want
You gotta know what you got to stand for

Gotta put your heart on the line
If you wanna make it right
You've got to reach out and try
Gotta put your heart on the line
If you wanna get it right
Gotta put it all on the line
[x3]

  57. Deni Sings

    No sense pretending it's over/Hard times just don't go away,
    You've got to take that chip off your shoulder/It's time you open up, have some faith
    Nothin' good ever comes easy/All good things come in due time (yes it does)/
    You've gotta have something to believe in/I'm telling you to open your mind (hee-eee-eee)
    Chorus: You've gotta put your heart on the line, if you want to make it right/
    You've got to reach out and try. Gotta put your heart on the line, if you want to get it right/Gotta put it all on the line.
    You see yourself in the mirror/And if you don't like what you see, no/And things aren't getting much clearer/
    Don't you think it's time you go for a change, (oh oh)/Don't waste you time on the past (no no)/ It's time you look to the future (oh oh)/
    It's all right there if you ask/This time if you try much harder/You'll be the best that you can be!(oh, ohhh oh)
    [Chorus]
    If you want to make it right/And you want to do it now/Then you've got to learn to try/
    And to make it work somehow/Don't a lot in life come free/And that's just the way it is now/
    You've got to go for what you want/You've got to know it, You've got to live it (OH!)
    [Chorus]. . .(On the line) (you and me) (whoo!) (whoo!) (you and me!)
    (gotta put it all, gotta put it all) (whoo!) (Hee!)
