Every album needs an empowerment song. That is what this song serves for Off I Go. It's upbeat, lighthearted and splashes in some gospel flare and a whole lotta soul. Get On Up and enjoy!


Gonna get up, put that coffee pot on
Don't wait for me I'm already gone
Boy, you aint the only one

Gonna get up, get going along
You won't convince me that I'm wrong
Child, its time you moved on

Gonna get up
I think its time you crawled out from under your rock
Gonna get up
Times are changing, my love, and you are out of luck
Open your eyes, get out and have a look around
Im gone, and your ships run aground


The revolution has only just begun
Gonna get up
I ain’t afraid to say im having too much fun
I left the radio on, did you hear that song?
That was my note goodbye, and so long


Up like a bird takes off in flight
Up like the wind under a kite
Up like the sun with all her might
Up like a thief in the night

Up off the couch up outta bed
Up from the madness in my head
Up from all the shit you said
Up high beyond the wounds that bled



from Off I Go, released August 3, 2014
