lyrics

I'm going to let my enemies become my friends.

Listen to the one that tells you
your life is going to work out fine.
Likewise, listen when the other one tells you
you're going to lose yourself in the by and by.

You've got to let your enemies become your friends.

When problems they fall down upon us,
it often feels like they won't lift.
I know it's hard to see, but we really ought to -
How each one of those problems becomes a gift.

We've got to let our enemies become our friends.

Listen to me, everyone, know each part of yourself.
Let them stay close by 'cause they're not going anywhere else.
Some parts get so harsh and some parts you'll despise,
But you'll learn to love them by and by.

I'm going to let my enemies become my friends.
