It Ain't Over For Me

about

Like all of the other tracks, this song is self-motivation that I hope will inspire others. I'm gonna keep hustling (working), and I know that I've got to balance that with going with the flow. As Arianna Huffington says, life is a balance between 'making it happen' and 'letting it happen'.

lyrics

IT AIN"T OVER FOR ME

My life, my life
I keep hustling
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep flowing
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep hustling
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep flowing
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me naw)

All my life they told me
Play it safely
Stay inside the box
Make my dreams plan B
Foolish philosophy
I followed religiously
Till the walls closed in
It got hard to breathe
So many people out here
slowly suffocating
How can you help me
if you’re hyperventilating
Counting down the days
like we serving time
A beautiful world
I’ve been trying to find

My life, my life
I keep hustling
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep flowing
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep hustling
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep flowing
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me naw)

People told me
Can’t get no sleep
Work your fingers to the bone
Just to compete
Foolish philosophy
I followed religiously
Till my body told me
You killing me softly
For the glory, for the freedom,
for the wealth
What good to gain the world
if you lose your health?
Excess to impress somebody else
I’d be better off being good to myself
Ooh, what’s behind the facade?
Why people worship
money like it’s God
Running through the days
Like we running outta time
A beautiful world
We’ve been dying to find

My life, my life
I keep hustling
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep flowing
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep hustling
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me)
My life, my life
I keep flowing
(Cause it ain’t over for me
It ain’t over for me naw)

I done seen a few tragedies
Folks cope with different strategies
I done fell apart a few times
I done used a few lifelines
Jaded heart and crowded mind
Drown out the noise with white wine
Free myself from these confines
That’s the challenge of a lifetime

My life, my life yeah
My life, my life yeah
My life, my life yeah
My life, my life, my life, my life

My life, my life yeah
My life, my life yeah
My life, my life yeah
My life, my life, my life, my life

In the sunshine
Everybody loves the sunshine
Not the rain, not the rain,
not the rain, not the rain but the
Everybody, everybody, everybody
Everybody loves the sunshine

My life, my life, my life, my life
Everybody loves the sunshine
Thankful for the sunshine in my life
My life, my life, my life, my life

My life, my life
