lyrics

Written by: Lyle Divinsky


Say sister I see you walking with your head down
Is it cause you got something on your mind
Does it feel like the world done dealt you a hand that meant to lose
You keep getting knocked down no matter how you try
You got a four-year-old daughter
With another on the way
Making money’s getting harder
It seems there’ll never be a brighter day, but you gotta push on.

Say brother I see you with that swagger in your step
Can’t nobody hold you down
Behind the scenes you’re screaming cause the woman you love done up and left
And it’s feeling like the tears gon’ make you drown
But you gotta love your mind and body
Before you’re loving someone else
Finding happiness in somebody
Comes from finding happiness within yourself, you gotta push on

And I say la, da, da, da, dat da…. x2 (Sing with me the second time)

Take a look in the mirror and I barely even recognize myself
It’s a stranger looking me in the eye
I’m lost in city living, done changed to somebody else
Feel like the child in me done said goodbye
But I gotta smile at the struggle
Gotta stand tall through the pain
Though it feels like I’m the only
I know that you’re going through the same, but we gotta push on

If we come together we gon’ push on
Smile on your brother and we gon’ push on
Lift your sister and we gon’ push on
Love yourself and we gon’ push on
