(lyrics)

Got my head on straight today
Made it through yesterday
Relatively unscathed
No time to figure it out
Can't find a single lingering doubt

Got my head on straight for once
Haven't felt quite this well
For so many months
No time to scheme and plan
Hit the ground start running as fast as I can

Got my head on straight tonight
Gonna find out what went wrong
And make it all right
Sometimes I feel this way
Can't seem to make this feeling stay
Make it stay, make it stay

No time to scheme and plan
Hit the ground start running as fast as I can
As fast as I can

Got my head on straight at last
But voices are still calling me back to the past
High time, just turn and go
Stick around and I'll surely know my fate
And that can wait
That can wait

Got my head on straight today
Yeah, today
Yeah, today
