  • At forty-four minutes to four
    An angel walked up to my door
    Opened the windows to my soul
    Told me he thinks that I should know
    That there's no slowing down
    As the globe spins 'round and 'round
    You gotta keep going, gotta keep going
    Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
    Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
    You gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
    You gotta keep going

    If there's one thing that I learned
    While in those county lines
    It's that everything takes time
    You have gotta lose your pride
    You have gotta lose your mind
    Just to find your peace of mind
    You have got to trust the signs
    Everything will turn out fine

    So why aren't you smiling? Why aren't you smiling?
    Life can get wild when, you caught in the whirl wind
    Lost in the whirl wind, your chasing the wind
    You gotta understand
    There's really no end, there's really no beginning
    There's really no real, there's really no pretending
    There's really no fail, there's really no winning
    'Cause nothing really isn't, everything really isn't

    At forty-four minutes to four
    An angel walked up to my door
    Opened the windows to my soul
    Told me he thinks that I should know
    Life only gets harder but you gotta get stronger
    This is for my brother, I do this for my daughter
    That's why I keep going, that's why I keep going
    That's why I keep going
    That's why I keep going, I gotta keep going
    I gotta keep going, I gotta keep going
    I gotta keep going, gotta keep going
    Gotta keep going

    I gotta show them, that I can keep going
    I gotta keep going, I gotta keep going
    I gotta keep going

    Why aren't you smiling? Why aren't you smiling?
    Life can get wild when, you caught in the whirl wind
    Lost in the whirl wind, your chasing the wind
    You gotta understand
    There's really no end, there's really no beginning
    There's really no real, there's really no pretending
    There's really no fail, there's really no winning
    'Cause nothing really isn't, everything really isn't
    That's why I keep going Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Arriah Ward from St Louis, Missourithis song has been on my mind lately and i didnt know why so i decided to look up the meaning and now i understand why i couldnt stop thinking about it it describes how i felt after my grandmother passed away and all i can think of is how she always wanted me to keep living my life no matter what happened and ig this was just her sending a reminder
