  1. Strength To Survive

Lyrics

THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM
REAL LIFE IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF MY DREAMS
I GET A LITTLE TASTE OF WHAT I FEEL
BUT GET A HEAVY DOSE OF WHAT IS REAL

CHORUS:
I FEEL TIRED, I FEEL LEFT OUT AND SET ASIDE
I’M TRYING TO FIND THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE

WHEN I’M LOOKING IN MY MIRROR, I DON’T LIKE WHAT I SEE
A BROKEN MAN STARING RIGHT BACK AT ME
I NEED A PLAN AND A LITTLE GOOD LUCK
TO SEE ME THROUGH, SEE ME THROUGH WHEN TIMES GET ROUGH

CHORUS:
I FEEL TIRED, I FEEL LEFT OUT AND SET ASIDE
I’M TRYING TO FIND THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE

(SOLO)

MY WOMAN AND BILLS ARE ALL IN MY FACE
THEY BOTH WORRY ME AND WANT TO BE PAID
I AIN’T GOT MUCH, BABY, BUT IT’S MORE THAN YOU NEED
SO DON’T FORGET, GIRL, YOU ARE THE ONE THAT PICKED ME

CHORUS:
I FEEL TIRED, I FEEL LEFT OUT AND SET ASIDE
I’M TRYING TO FIND THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE

I STOPPED FEELING SORRY FOR MYSELF
IT’S UP TO ME AND ONLY ME AND NO ONE ELSE
MY SOUL WAS DEAD, NOW MY SPIRIT’S ALIVE
I FOUND THE STRENGTH, THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE

I’M NOT TIRED, I’M NOT LEFT OUT OR SET ASIDE
I FINALLY FOUND THE STRENGTH, THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE
