02. Get Back Up

Tonight
by TobyMac



 

You turned away when I looked you in the eye
And hesitated when I asked if you were alright
Seems like you’re fightin’ for your life
But why, oh, why

Wide awake in the middle of your nightmare
You saw it comin’ but it hit you out of nowhere
And there’s always scars when you fall that far

We lose our way, we get back up again
It’s never too late to get back up again
And one day you gonna’ shine again
You may be knocked down, but not out forever

We lose our way, we get back up again
So get up, get up, you gonna’ shine again
It’s never too late to get back up again
You may be knocked down, but not out forever

You rolled out of the dawning of the day
Heart racin’ as you made your little get away
It feels like you been runnin’ all your life
But why, oh, why

So you pull away from the love that would’ve been there
And start believin’ that your situation’s unfair
But there’s always scars when you fall that far

This is love callin,’ love callin,’
Out to the broken this is love callin’
This is love callin,’ love callin,’
I am so broken
This is love callin,’ love callin’




Behind the Song:
“It’s about a close friend whose life was falling apart based on some bad choices that he made. I basically told his story in the song. He felt like he was worthless before God and before his fellow man for the choices he’d made. The main thing I wanted him to know that I love him and I’m there for him. He’s not cast out. He’s not shunned. Anybody that makes those tragic mistakes, really awful choices—even in Christian music and in Christian leadership—the message they need to hear is, that love is calling out to the broken . . . I’ve shared the lyrics to the song with my friend, and I told him it’s not a judgmental song; it’s a beautiful song, and it’s what I would want you to know.” - tobyMac
