    Lyrics

    [Eve]
    This song is a dedication to those strugglin and livin on
    For those who can't see the light, it's comin
    Stay strong, feel me.. [echoes]

    [Teena Marie]
    Ooohhhh, yeah yeah yeah yeah
    Yeah yeah, oooohhhhhhh, oohhhohhhhh..

    [Chorus: Teena Marie]
    Livin life is so hard
    Every day I pray to God
    Tell Him to send me light so I can touch my soul
    And always know right from wrong
    Livin life is so hard
    Every day I pray to God
    Tell Him to touch my heart so He can ease the pain
    Anything to hide the scars

    [Eve]
    Uhh, uhh
    Thank you God, I appreciate every blessin
    Happiness to heartaches, take it as a lesson
    I learned a lot in this year
    Got a profession that keeps me stressin
    Facin criticism, answerin questions
    And you still keep me happy and healthy
    Blessed with a mind to play the cards that life has dealt me
    No doubt I struggle, I cry at times
    Sometimes I wish I could live in a bubble
    And it gets hard not to stray to trouble
    I'm proud of me, got a family that holds me down
    Real friends 'cause the other ones claim they don't know me now
    But long as God with me, I'ma be good for sure
    He's the one who picks me up when my face is to the floor
    Life is crazy, people never cease to amaze me
    Stay with stories by how they made me or raised me
    And it's funny, 'cause everybody seems to be so hungry
    Either they want my life, or they want my money

    [Chorus]

    [Teena Marie]
    How can life be so hard?
    How can my life be so hard?
    Whatever doesn't kill me makes me strong
    Whatever doesn't kill me makes me strong
    Every day I pray to God
    Every day I pray
    Whatever doesn't kill me makes me strong
    Whatever, whatever, whatever

    [Eve]
    Uhh, been through a lot
    Still gotta watch my back 'cause people plot
    Close is to do you dirty just so they can take your spot
    Some days I feel like I wanna quit
    But I pray too long and dreamed and worked too hard for it
    Wouldn't trade my life, none even a little bit
    Cause it could be worse for real, I could be turnin tricks
    Might bitch and whine but always just in the back of my mind
    I could be livin on the streets, nothin to eat without a dime
    So I thank God, and I think why 'cause life's hard
    Meet a lot of people but always I'm puttin up my guard
    Cause you never know, some people snakes
    Some people give a lot but mostly not, most people take
    A lot of smilin claimin realness but most people fake
    Still gotta smile, 'cause that's what it takes
    Sometimes it's lonely
    I feel like people see me really don't know me
    But my best friend is Him, and I know He'll hold me

    [Chorus]

    [Eve]
    Uhh, uhh
    I got a lotta people on my side protectin me
    Dee, Waah, Chivon, and the family
    Gotta thank God for them 'cause they keep me right
    I also thank Him every day for the love of my life
    I thank Him, for this gift just to be able to write
    and rock crowds that scream my name, able to excite
    Thank God for my fans; I love the way they love me
    Happy that I'm comfortable, eatin, livin lovely
    I love my life, still there's the pressure and pain
    So I make sure that I'm grounded and able to maintain
    Alotta people think I'm lucky, travelin and hangin out
    But if they only knew, I +WISH+ I could be hangin out
    I'm bangin out hits, in the studio I'm livin low
    Makin plans to last a lifetime, make sure I'm gettin dough
    Huh, come on, just so the people know
    Uhh, come on, just so the people know

    [Chorus - 2X]
