VERSE 1

 

 

SINGLE MOTHER WHO ONLY WANTED A BREAK

 

IN THIS THING CALLED LIFE, EVERYDAY TRYING TO MAKE

 

ENDS MEAT TO SUPPORT HER TWO KIDS AND HERSELF

 

TRYING TO COME TO GRIPS WITH THE CARDS THAT SHE WAS DEALT

 

HER HEALTH NOT AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE BUT STILL

 

HER WILL TO SURVIVE OVERRIDES THE WAY SHE FEEL

 

ON THE REAL, HER LIFE HAS ALWAYS BEEN UNSTABLE

 

CIRCUMSTANCE WAS FATAL, FINANCIALLY UNABLE

 

FROM SUN UP TO SUN DOWN WORKING TWO JOBS

 

NO TIME FOR ANYTHING SO SHE BARELY KNEW GOD

 

WAS ROBBED OF THE EXPERIENCE OF FAMILY

 

FATHER SAID HEŐD BE THERE BUT HE DIDNŐT PLAN TO BE

 

HER FRIENDS BROUGHT RESISTANCE, NO ASSISTANCE

 

HER PARENTS AND HER HAD AN EMOTIONAL DISTANCE

 

LOST AT A CROSSROADS, WHICH WAY TO GO

 

BEFORE YOU THROW IN THE TOWEL THERE IS SOMETHING YOU NEED TO KNOW SIS

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

YOU GOTTA HOLD ON MY BROTHER, THEREŐS NO TURNING BACK

 

YOU GOTTA HOLD ON MY SISTER, GOTTA STAY ON TRACK

 

THOUGH IT SEEMS TO BE OVER, LIFE ONLY SEEMS TO GET COLDER

 

BUT IT WONŐT BE LONG, SO YOU GOTTA HOLD ON

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

EVERYONE ELSE AROUND TO HIM SEEMED A LITTLE SHARPER

 

ALWAYS HAD TO WORK HARDER, NEVER KNEW HIS FATHER

 

WAS TOLD BY A FEW THAT SCHOOL WOULD BE THE ANSWER

 

BUT HE HAD TO DROP OUT WHEN HIS MOM DEVELOPED CANCER

 

NO CHANCE TO PLAY, HEŐS THE FAMILY BABYSITTER

 

SUPPORT CENTER, GO GETTER, FAMILY BREAD WINNER

 

FROM JOB TO JOB, INTERVIEW TO INTERVIEW

 

NO CHANCE TO ADVANCE THOUGH UNLESS HE WENT TO SCHOOL

 

BILLS ARE STACKING UP, MOTHERŐS BOYFRIEND SHACKING UP

 

AND HER CANCER GREW WORSE SO HE SIMPLY JUST HAD ENOUGH

 

REMEMBERING THAT OFFER GIVEN TO HIM BEFORE

 

WAS HARD TO IGNORE WITH DESIRES OF WANTING MORE

 

FROM HIS OWN ADMITTAL FAITH IN GOD WAS VERY BRITTLE

 

HIS FRIEND TOLD HIM TO MAKE IT HEŐS GOTTA SELL A LITTLE

 

HE STATED THE DRUG GAMEŐS THE QUICKEST WAY TO MAKE IT

 

BUT TRUST ME BROTHER THAT OFFER YOU DONŐT HAVE TO TAKE IT, HOLD ON

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

SHE MET HER SOUL MATE, SHE WAS FEELING SO GREAT

 

COMPARED TO PAST RELATIONSHIPS, THIS WAS NO FAKE

 

PLANS OF A FUTURE LIFE, WEDDING BELLS AND ALL

 

ENGAGED IN THE SPRING, GOT MARRIED IN THE FALL

 

FEELINGS OF WEDDING BLISS MADE THEIR LOVE GROW REAL INTENSE

 

HOUSE IN A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD MINUS THE PICKETT FENCE

 

THEIR PLANS FOR CHILDREN THEY STARTED TO DISCUSS

 

A BABY WHOM THEY COULD SHARE THEIR LOVE WOULD BE A PLUS

 

SAFE TO SAY THAT HER LIFE WAS MORE THAN OK

 

SHE SEEMED TO BE LIVING A DREAM ÔTIL ONE DAY

 

SHE GOT A PHONE CALL SHE NEVER THOUGHT SHE WOULD GET

 

BAD NEWS THAT HER HUSBAND HAD BEEN KILLED IN A WRECK

 

HER DREAM BECAME A NIGHTMARE, STARTED TO BLAME GOD

 

SCREAMING TO HEAVEN THAT HER HUSBANDŐS LIFE WAS ROBBED

 

SHE THOUGHT OF OVERDOSING, THE STRESS WAS TOO HECTIC

 

UNTIL THE PHONE RANG AND THE DOCTOR SAID, ŇYOUŐRE PREGNANTÓ, HOLD ON

 

 

CHORUS 2 XŐS

 

 

VAMP (REPEATED)

 

WHENEVER TRIALS COME YOUR WAY

 

BEST BELIEVE THEY WONŐT STAY

 

AND THOUGH THE SKY MAY SEEM GRAY

 

JUST KNOW THE SUNŐS ON ITŐS WAY
