The Life Lyrics

by Alicia Keys

Everyday I realize that this might be the last day of my life
Walkin' down the streets I find
I'm comin' closer and closer to losin' my mind
'Cause when it rains it pours, isn't life worth more?
I don't even know what I'm hustlin' for
You gotta do what you gotta do
Just to make it through
All the hard times that's gonna face you

This is the life
Striving to survive
This is the life
Striving to survive
This is the life

Livin' will always be a struggle
Lookin' for someone true to love you
Lookin' back I see all the horrors
This madness makes me wanna hide
I watch slowly, internally I'm dyin'
Pillow case wet from all my cryin'
'Cause there is nothin' more to be here for
Take me away I can't live that life no more

This is the life
Strivin' to survive
This is the life
Strivin' to survive
This is the life
Strivin' to survive
This is the life
Strivin' to survive
This is the life

Tryin' to get over
Tryin' to get over
I am just tryin'
Tryin' to get over
Tryin' to get over
Tryin' to get over
Tryin' to get over
Goin' to get over
This is my life
This is my life
This is my life
This is my life
