Time to Get it Together

Share |

"Jesus said time will heal all wounds,
but we have to live right to get the time."

-- Marvin Gaye, from his song "Time to Get it Together"

Sometimes I am unable to move
I let temptation get me off of my groove
Sometimes I get it
Sometimes it's hard
To stay with it
But right now, get it, gotta get it, get it
Got to stay with it
Makin' up my mind, yeah
Gonna get it together
Gonna love every day every night till I get it

Isn't it good? There aren't too many Marvin Gaye songs that I don't like from the "What's Going On" album through to just after he died. He is one of the greatest musicians -- EVER!

Sista,

I don't know about you, but I have to be careful when I listen to Marvin's songs. I tend to play them over and over and over again. He was such a genius.

And it is very much "Time to Get it Together," isn't it?

Peace,
Alicia

yes i too repeatedly listen to marvin----many years later his message is so timely. failure of our education system is promoting more crime and profit for the prison system. it is past time to get it together.

sernuaaba herut,

Our education system needs a rehaul and change in philosophy. And there's also a failure of "the village" to do its job. We need a change of heart.
