Heavenly (No Ways Tired/Can't Give Up Now)

Album: Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse (2014)
  • Folks will taking advantage of you because
    They believe you're too weak to speak up for yourself
    You don't have to speak up for yourself
    Be still and let God fight your battles
    Somebody come and go with me, Amen!

    There will be mountains that I will have to climb
    And there will be battles that I will have to fight
    But victory or defeat, it's up to me to decide
    But how can I expect to win if I never try?

    I just can't give up now
    Come too far from where I started from
    Nobody told me the road would be easy
    And I don't believe He brought me this far to leave me

    Never said there wouldn't be trials
    Never said I wouldn't fall
    Never said that everything would go
    The way I want it to go
    But when my back is against the wall
    And I feel all hope is gone
    I'll just lift my head up to the sky
    And say, "Help me to be strong"

    I just can't give up now
    I've come too far from where I started from
    Nobody told me the road would be easy
    He's brought me this far to leave me

    No you didn't bring me out here to leave me lonely
    Even when I can't see clearly
    I know that you are with me, so I can't

    Oh, I just can't give up now
    'Cause I've come too far from where I started from
    Nobody told me (nobody told me that the road would be easy)
    And I don't believe (don't believe)
    He brought me this far to leave me

    And I can't give up now
    Yeah, just can't, oh
    Can't give up now
    Said I've come too far from where I started from
    Nobody told me (nobody told me that the road would be easy)
    And I don't believe (don't believe)
    He's brought me this far to leave me

    I just can't give up now
    I've come too far from where I started from
    Nobody told me the road would be easy (it's been a little rough but I don't believe)
    Don't believe, he's brought me this far to leave me (no no, no no)

    I can't give up now!
    I just can't give up now
    Said I've come too far
    Come too far from where I started from
    No one said it would be easy
    Nobody told me the road would be easy
    And I don't believe
    He's brought me this far to leave me

    I don't feel no waste time
    (Be still and let God fight your battles)
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far
    I don't believe he's brought me this far Writer/s: CURTIS BURRELL, MARIAH CAREY, GEORGE JR CLINTON
