Lyrics

So you came to visit me the other day

How many times I let you in

And you said the same thing you always say

You’re ready for your new life to begin

So I empty my heart and my soul and I pray for you

But just like every time before

There’s no effort to change. You’re too comfortable.

And your heart grows complacent once more



(Chorus)

Get serious. Really serious.

Friendship with the world means enmity with God

And you can’t serve God and man

Don’t you understand

Get serious. Really serious.

Narrow is the road that leads to Glory

And Hell ain’t no fictional story

Leave your baggage behind

Make up your mind

Gotta turn around and get serious



He is a fiercely jealous lover

He won’t share you with no other

He despises the taste of a lukewarm life

Got to be hot or cold

Whether you’re young or old

No excuses

If it’s just something that you say you do

If it’s just something that you wanna do some day

If you’re just waiting for the right time,

The right moment in your life when you’re not too busy

When you grow up, when you’re through having fun

When your party ends, when you’ve lost all your friends


(Chorus)

When you grow up, when you’re through having fun

When you’re party ends, when you’ve lost all your friends

When you settle down, when you’re sick of yourself

When you get the time, when you’ve spent your last time

When your bottle is dry, when you’re through getting high

When your hope is gone, when your last breath is drawn

When you crash and you burn, is that when you’ll turn



Narrow is the road that leads to Glory

Hell ain’t no fictional story

Leave your baggage behind

Make up your mind

Gotta turn around and get serious
