[Verse 1]
It took some time, but I’ve arrived
at a different way to the play the same game.
And as my view takes off, on this new shade
the situation seems to change.

I’ve got to backup, and look for a bright today.
I’ve got to see the road, and to pave the a new way.

And I no longer sit in daze, if I watch two children play.
I hear my grandma’s voice, and the way she used to say:

[Chorus]
Take the longview, is what matters most
Can’t see to clearly, from up so close.

Got to backup, let my mind see.
I can’t let the short get the best of me.

Take the longview, is what matters most
Can’t see to clearly, from up so close.

Got to backup, let my mind see.
I can’t let the short get the best of me.

No, no no no
I’ve got to take the longview.

[Verse 2]
From the shoreline, to the horizon
From Atlanta to Zimbabwe
If I forget, comes to together [?]
We will live on in better way

We’ve just go to,
We’ve got to listen with that ear, see with that eye
Take action based on how we feel inside.

I’ve got to backup, and look for a bright today.
I’ve got to see the road, and to pave the a new way.

[Chorus] x1

Got to back up, and let my mind see.
Got to focus on, what’s good for me.

And if I only see the shorter view, I’ll be a fool.
Got to back up, and do right,
Take the longview and hold it in my sight.

I’ve got to take the longview.
I’ve got to take the longview.
I’ve got to take the longview.
