Get it together, Girl.

Next in my Songs That Helped series is “Get It Together” by India Arie.

I had to listen to this one today because my suicidal thoughts came back with a vengeance. It was actually playing in my head at first.

It’s a beautiful song and a beautiful reminder, “to choose life, is to choose to forgive”.

Love to all those who are suffering. You are not alone. đź’™

Lyrics:

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your kin
(#facts)

Kept it inside, didn’t tell no one else
Didn’t even wanna admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way

Get it together (You wanna heal your body)
Get it together (You have to heal your heart)
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together
You can fly, fly, fly

Dark future ahead of me, that’s what they said
I’d be starving if I ate all the lies they fed
‘Cause I’ve been redeemed from your aguish and pain
A miracle child, I’m foating on a cloud
Cause the words that come from your mouth, you’re the first to hear
Speak words of beauty and you will be there

No matter what anybody says
What matters most is what you think of yourself

Get it together (You wanna heal your body)
Get it together (You have to heal your heart)
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

The choice is yours, no matter what it is
To choose life, is to choose to forgive

You don’t, have to try and hurt him, or break his pride
Just shake that weight off, and you’ll be ready to fly

One shot to your heart without breaking your skin
No one has the power to hurt you like your friends
Though it would never change but as time moved on
That ugly duckling grew up to be a swan (Be a swan)

And now your chest burns and your back aches
Because now the years are showing up on your face
But you’ll never be happy and you’ll never be whole
Until you see the beauty in growing old

Get it together (You wanna heal your body)
Get it together (You have to heal your heart)
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

Get it together (You wanna heal your body)
Get it together (You have to heal your heart)
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together

You can fly, fly fly, fly
You can live, or you can die
You know that life is a choice you make
You can give or you can take
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can fly, fly, fly, fly
You can fly, fly, fly, fly

(Lyrics from my google search, lol.)
