Let's Face It!

From the album In The Hospital Buy Now

- about the reality of physical disabilities 

LET’S FACE IT!

I love the way you laugh.  I love the way you smile

I love the way y’act.  Y’got your own style

Chorus: Let’s face it!   Let’s face it!

 

You’re feelin’ blue 'cause you look diff’rent

It’s no fun when you get funny looks

But life is not a beauty pageant

And pretty covers don’t make good books!

 

Chorus: Let’s face it!  I love the way you laugh!

Let’s face it!  I love the way you smile!

Let’s face it!  I love the way y’act!

Let’s face it!  Y’got your own style!

Let’s face it!  Let’s face it!

 

Bridge:  Now ev’rybody gets embarrassed

That’s just the way we are

If we’re alive, then we’re not perfect

Ev’rybody’s got some scars!

 

Chorus: Let’s face it! Sometimes you’re feelin’ great

Let’s face it! Sometimes you wanna die

Let’s face it! You’re feelin’ sorry, mate

Let’s face it! That’s where the problem lies

               Let’s face it! Do you love the way you laugh?

               Let’s face it! Love yourself with all your heart?

               Let’s face it! Do you love the way y’act?

               Let’s face it! Don’t y’think it’s time t’start?

 

You’ve got strength and courage

Y’got personality

Y’got great taste in friends, y’know?

And you’re humble, just like me!!

 

Chorus: Let’s face it! Sometimes you’re feelin’ great

Let’s face it! Sometimes you’re fallin’ apart

Let’s face it! Sometimes y’hesitate

Let’s face it! T’love yourself with all your heart!

               Let’s face it! Don’t worry ‘bout what you’re not!

               Let’s face it! Think about the things y’got!

Let’s face it! He loves the way you laugh!

Let’s face it! She loves the way you smile!

Let’s face it! We love the way y’act!

Let’s face it! Y’got your own style!

               Let’s face it! Ev’rybody loves your style!

               Let’s face it! Well, . . . almost ev’rybody

Let’s face it! There’s this one dude I know

Let’s face it! Who is sooo into bein’ cool and actin’ hot

Let’s face it! That he doesn’t know what t’make of you!

Let’s face it! I mean, . . you bust his marbles!

               Let’s face it! Yeah!  He’s like checkin’ you out, checkin’ you out!

               Let’s face it! “Look at that style!!” he’s sayin’

               Let’s face it! See, he doesn’t have his own style

               Let’s face it! He’s afraid t’be himself, thinks no one will like him, y’know?

Let’s face it! Yeah! Let’s face it, it’s just great bein’ ourselves!

Let’s face it!
