S02E16-rachel
Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 5
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: March 8, 2011
By: Glee original composition
Sung by: Rachel Berry with Brittany Pierce and Tina Cohen-Chang
Place: 2011 Midwest Regional Championship
Episode: Original Song

Get It Right is an original song featured in Original Song, the sixteenth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Rachel Berry with Brittany Pierce and Tina Cohen-Chang singing back-up vocals.

Quinn inspires this song with her lecture to Rachel about her relationship with Finn, regarding the fact that, by holding on to a desperate hope to achieve a fairy tale romance with Finn, she "would never get it right."

The song is the opening number for the New Directions setlist. Rachel sings with Brittany and Tina as backup. She looks at Finn during the performance as Quinn overlooks Finn while he watches her. After the bridge, all the girls come onto the stage as backup.

It is written by Adam Anders, Peer Astrom, and Nikki Anders, but in the episode, Rachel is the composer of this ballad, which she dedicates to Finn.

Lyrics

Rachel:
What have I done
I wish I could run
Away from this ship going under
Just trying to help
Hurt everyone else
Now I feel the weight of the world
Is on my shoulders

What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch, tumbles down
'Cause my best intentions
Keep making a mess of things

I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take
Oh, how many times will it take for me
To get it right
To get it right

Can I start again
With my faith shaken

Rachel with Tina and Brittany:
'Cause I can't go back and undo this

Rachel:
I just have to stay
And face my mistakes

Rachel with Tina and Brittany:
But if I get stronger and wiser
I'll get through this

What can you do when your good isn't good enough
And all that you touch, tumbles down
'Cause my best intentions
Keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow

But how many times will it take?
Oh, how many times will it take for me?

Rachel:
To get it right
So I throw up my fist
Throw a punch in the air
And accept the truth
That sometimes life isn't fair

Rachel with Tina and Brittany:
Yeah, I'll send out a wish
Yeah, I'll send up a prayer

Rachel:
And finally someone will see
How much I care

New Directions Girls:
What can you do when your good isn't good enough

Rachel with New Directions Girls:
All that you touch, tumbles down
Oh, my best intentions
Keep making a mess of things
I just wanna fix it somehow
But how many times will it take?

Rachel with Tina and Brittany:
Oh, how many times will it take?

Rachel:
To get it right
To get it right
