       “PRESS ON (KEEP PRESSIN’)”

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED TO ME, I CAN'T EXPLAIN

 

FEEL LIKE I'M A VICTIM BUT NO ONE'S TO BLAME

 

I'M IN A SPOT I'D NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE IN

 

A STATE OF STAGNATION CAUSE PROGRESS I'M JUST NOT SEEING

 

I FEEL CONFUSED CAUSE I CONTINUE PRAYING

 

 AS FAR AS GIVING'S CONCERNED, I'M STILL OBEYING

 

THE TRUTH AND THE REAL, I'M DOING HIS WILL BUT STILL

 

SOMETIMES I FEEL THAT I'M CLIMBING AN UPWARD HILL

 

NOT TRYING TO MAKE YOU FEEL SORRY NOR DEPRESSED BUT

 

JUST TRYING TO GET ALL THESE FEELINGS OFF MY CHEST

 

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS AND GET TO THE CORE OF THE

 

PROBLEM I'M HAVING, TRYING TO FIND THE SECRET FORMULA

 

IF IT WERE ONLY THAT SIMPLE THAT WOULD BE THE END OF IT

 

BUT WE WILL ALL HAVE STRUGGLES IS THE EXTENT OF IT

 

BUT IT'S WHATEVER I DO AT THIS STATE

 

OF THE STRUGGLE THAT DECIDES IF I FAIL OR GRADUATE

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

EVEN WHEN I'M IN A DRY PLACE AND

 

NOBODY ELSE SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT I'M FACING

 

CIRCUMSTANCES SEEM TO STAY THE SAME, BUT I GOTTA PRESS ON, I GOTTA PRESS ON

 

WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE MY PRAYERS ARE NEVER HEARD AND

 

I NEED AN ANSWER BUT THERE'S NOT A WORD AND

 

THOUGH IT'S HARD FOR ME TO MAINTAIN, I GOTTA PRESS ON, I GOTTA PRESS ON

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

HOW MANY KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING, HOW MANY WITNESSES

 

TO TRY TO FIND PEACE OF MIND IS NOW THE EMPHASIS

 

I SEE YOU ON YOUR KNEES BUT YOU'RE STILL QUESTIONING

 

"IS THE LORD HEARING MY PRAYERS", YOUR HEART IS BECKONING

 

I FIRST ASKED HOW YOU'RE DOING, YOU SAID I'M THRIVING

 

A FEW MONTHS LATER I ASKED, YOU SAID SURVIVING

 

STRESS IN YOUR LIFE WENT FROM ZERO TO SIXTY

 

YOU JUST CAN'T UNDERSTAND HOW IT CAN CHANGE SO QUICKLY

 

YOU LOOK FOR REASONING WHILE BLAMING YOURSELF

 

YOU EVEN HEARD FROM OTHERS TO START CLAIMING YOUR WEALTH

 

THEY SAID YOU GOT TO HAVE FAITH FOR THINGS YOU NEED

 

THEN YOU BEGIN TO WONDER, HOW BIG IS A MUSTARD SEED

 

THE BLESSINGS OF THE UNJUST MAKES DISAPPOINTMENT GROW

 

THEN YOU ASK "WHY NOT ME, I'M YOUR ANNOINTED THOUGH"

 

BUT YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS IS ONLY A TEST

 

YOU CANNOT GIVE IN IF YOU WANT TO REACH SUCCESS, SO PRESS ON

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

YOUR LACK OF FAITH HAS BEEN GETTING IN THE WAY LATELY

 

I MIGHT JUST SEE MY BREAKTHROUGH TODAY MAYBE

 

THAT'S WHAT YOU SAY EVERYDAY OUT OF THE MONTH

 

AND WAITING FOR YOUR BLESSING IS LIKE A SCAVENGER HUNT

 

AFTER A LITTLE WHILE WE GET OFF TASK AND CRY

 

AIN'T BEEN LONG AT ALL BEFORE WE START ASKING WHY

 

YOU START TO THINK, LORD I PAID ALL MY OFFERINGS AND TITHES

 

I PRAYED AND FASTED PLUS I STOPPED TELLING THOSE LIES

 

NOW YOU'RE LOSING HOPE CAUSE YOU SAW NO RESULT

 

KEEP ON THIS PATH AND YOUR TRUST WILL COME TO A HALT

 

ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF IN A RUT

 

THE NEXT THING THAT FOLLOWS IS YOU START GIVING UP

 

THAT'S NOT A PLACE YOU WANT TO BE IN, LISTEN TO ME

 

THERE'S ONLY ONE GOD UNLIKE THE FISH IN THE SEA

 

BUT DON'T FORGET, YOUR FLESH AND SPRIT IS AT WAR IN YOU

 

BUT IF YOU QUIT YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHAT'S IN STORE FOR YOU, SO PRESS ON

 

 

CHORUS 2 X’S
