I remember wasn't so long ago
We had a one room shack and the living was low
And my mama by herself, raised me and my bro
Wasn't easy but she did it with the little that flowed
Worked hard got us off to school everyday
Keep our eyes on the star though the skies were gray
Gave us drive to survive really showed us the way
Now I really understand what she was trying to say

She said, "Son there'll be times when the tides are high
And the boat may be rocky, you can cry
Just never give up
And you must never give
In this life you can lead if you only believe
In order to achieve what you need
You can never give up
You can never give up"

And it's hope that keeps me holdin' on and on
It's just hope that makes me carry on, on and on

Home grown couldn't have made it alone
I got a wonderful life, two kids of my own
With a strong foundation that was carved in stone
Thank my moma for the love that made my house a home
Makes me wonder sometimes if it was meant to be
All this for a humble little guy like me
An' all I ever really wanted was a family
To teach my kids the same values that she gave to me

She said, "Son there'll be times when the tides are high
And the boat may be rocky, you can cry
Just never give up
And you must never give
In this life you can lead if you only believe
In order to achieve what you need
You can never give up
You can never give up"

And it's hope that keeps me holdin' on and on
It's just hope that makes me carry on, on and on

Ah ah ah
We nah turn no stepper, things a go better
Never let yourself be overcome by the pressure
Cool yah me bredda, have faith instead
Sid dung and a watch and all a fight one another
Blaze like fire, nah go retire
God nah sleep and a him inspire
We fi reach higher a that him require
Haffi mek we mark before the time expire

And it's hope that keeps me holdin' on and on
It's just hope that makes me carry on, on and on
And it's hope that keeps me holdin' on and on
And it's hope that makes me carry on, on and on
Hope that keeps me carry on
And it's hope, that keeps me holdin' on
It's hope that makes me carry on
Hope, holdin' on, holdin' on
