Montgomery Gentry - What It Takes Lyrics
I learn what I know
But I was born this way
More of a number
And less of a name
I talk a little too quiet
And not enough they say
I only tell my secrets
When it’s time to pray

You wouldn’t see the war just lookin’ from the outside
I’ve got red dirt blood here runnin on the inside

Sink or swim, live or die
A saving grace and a blue sky
All alone, and unafraid
It’s never just another day
And you don’t back down or walk away
But I know, I do, I am
What it takes
What it takes

Wash away my footprints
With the undertow
While I’ll walk the wire, of the great unknown
I got two parts too
My storied soul
One stands with my brothers, one waits for me back at home

Sink or swim, live or die
A saving grace and a blue sky
All alone, and unafraid
It’s never just another day
And you don’t back down or walk away
But I know, I do, I am
What it takes

You wouldn’t see the war just lookin’ from the outside
I’ve got red dirt blood here runnin on the inside

Sink or swim, live or die
A saving grace and a blue sky
All alone, and unafraid
It’s never just another day
And you don’t back down or walk away
But I know, I do, I am
What it takes
Oh what it takes
What it takes
