You don’t have to be ill to get better

They’ll tell folk that they’re happy. They say they’re quite content

They don’t choose to look inside and rock the boat.

Afraid they might find something that disturbs their complacency –

Something that could strike a jarring note.

But if anyone’s proud of being set in their ways, their sanity must be in doubt

Because a rut is just a grave with the ends kicked out

And no one has to be ill to get better. More success can build from where anyone starts.

Now, who knows the limit on how high is high? What triumphs await someone who can decide: glory’s a game in which everyone can claim their parts?

Whether it’s love or it’s work or it’s learning; whether it’s fitness, health or wealth –

Why simply accept the status quo?

The world is ever changing; nothing is standing still, and there’s always so much further we all can go.

Now, surely everyone listening feels special; don’t you know it right at your core – that no matter where your life is, now, you want more?

For you don’t have to be ill to get better: more happiness can grow from any place – you’re starting now…

…who knows the limit on how high is high: on what joy awaits you when you decide to put an even bigger smile on your face?

Simply making do isn’t any way to live, when the more you have for you, the more that you can give.

So you don’t have to be ill to get better: more happiness can flow from so many places. Now, there’s simply no limit on how high is high: on what joy awaits you when you decide to put an even bigger smile on their faces.

You don’t have to be ill to get better. You don’t have to be ill to get better

You don’t have to. No, you don’t have to make life better.

But you can any time you want to, don’t you, now?
