I was down so long
 Everything was goin' wrong 
And the people all around me
Got the news

Lord and everything I tried 
Fell to pieces and slowly died
My soul was going broke
From paying dues

I was very nearly beat
When I crawled back to my feet
 Believing that a change 
Was overdue 

Now I'm pickin' up the pieces 
And takin' out new leases 
Gettin' ready for the things 
I want to do

And you know I'm ready 
How tough is it gonna be
Are you ready 
Don't keep asking me
If I'm ready, yea, yea
 Leave it up to me
I'm ready as I'm gonna be
I'm ready finally

Lord I'm ready to make my way
Take it slowly from day to day
Take it easy on myself 
As I roll along 

Lord knows it's down to me
To write the melody 
To sing my own words 
To the song

And you know I'm ready ...
