The Living Proof

Album: The Help Soundtrack (2011)
  • It's gonna be a long long journey
    It's gonna be an uphill climb
    It's gonna be tough fight
    It's gonna be some lonely nights
    But I am ready to carry on
    I am so glad the worst is over ('cause almost took me out)
    I can start living now
    I feel like I can do anything
    And finally I am not afraid to breath

    Anything you say to me
    And everything you do
    You can't deny the truth
    'Cause I am the living proof
    So many don't survive
    They just don't make it through
    But look at me
    I am the living proof
    Oh yes I am

    Thinking about life's been painful
    Yes it was
    Took a lot to learn how to smile
    So now I am gonna talk to my people,
    About the storm, about the storm
    Oh so glad the worst is over
    I can start flying now
    My best days are right in front of me
    Yeah and I am almost there
    'Cause now I am free

    Anything you say to me
    And everything you do
    You can't deny the truth
    'Cause I'm the living proof
    So many don't survive
    They just don't make it through
    But look at me
    I am the living proof

    I know where I am going
    Hey 'cause I know where I've been
    I am gonna feel strong that's showing
    I am gonna keep going
    That's the way that I will

    Anything you say to me
    And everything you do
    You can't deny the truth
    'Cause I'm the living proof
    So many those who fight
    They just don't make it through
    But look at me hey yeah
    I am the living proof

    Nothing about my life has been easy
    But nothing's gonna keep me down
    'Cause I know a lot more today
    Than I knew yesterday
    So I am ready to carry on
    Oh Lordie Writer/s: DAMON E THOMAS, MARY BLIGE, HARVEY JR., THOMAS NEWMAN
