Still Standing

Album: Still Standing (2010)
  • Mama always told me
    Baby, you gotta walk by faith
    And not by sight
    Real talk, you gotta listen
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, yeah

    Oh, listen to me now, I'm gonna say it loud
    So you won't be confused 'bout what we talkin' 'bout
    I been through the storm, had dirt on my name
    I'm still holding on, champion of the game
    (They said)

    Whatever, don't kill, you make you stronger
    Well, I must be the world's strongest woman
    See I done, done a whole lotta growin'
    Everything you say, I'm already knowin'
    Cause I

    I been up against ropes
    Everything you're going through
    I been there before, seen them all come
    And I seen them all go

    You can bet your last that
    My head won't hit the floor, never
    And I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing
    I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing

    I had a lover take his own in front of me
    I asked God, why is this happening to me?
    But I didn't fold, I held my own
    And now I'm deep in love with who I belong
    (This is my life)

    They say with age comes wisdom
    And the white flag, I can't give 'em
    Tryin' to tell you how it's s'posed to be
    See, this is more than just a song to me
    Cause I

    I been up against ropes
    Everything you're going through
    I been there before, seen them all come
    And I seen them all go

    You can bet your last that
    My head won't hit the floor, never
    And I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing
    I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing

    I'm unbreakable, baby
    Luda, yeah, it's a family affair
    I may have done the things they say I did
    But I'm not who they say I am

    Try to throw my name in the dirt
    But I really don't give a damn
    I'm still standing like the Statue of Liberty
    And I put my name in the history books
    So you'll forever remember me

    Remember me as the toughest warrior
    Or the ultimate fighter
    Cause I'm the truth and nothing but
    It's like my hands on the Bible
    And it's the survival of the fittest

    The realist, it's not a facade
    Still standing on my two feet
    Cause I'm a child of God
    Do something

    I been up against ropes
    Everything you're going through
    I been there before, seen them all come
    And I seen them all go

    You can bet your last that
    My head won't hit the floor, never
    And I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing
    I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing

    I been up against ropes
    Everything you're going through
    I been there before, seen them all come
    And I seen them all go

    You can bet your last that
    My head won't hit the floor, never
    And I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing
    I'm still standing, standing, standing, standing

    I'm not gonna give up, never
    Come too far to look back, oh
    Oh, oh, I been there before
    I've seen it, I've seen it, I've done it
    I've done it, I'm done, let me live my life now

    I let it go, I let God, I let it go, and I let God
    Don't hate me now
    I ain't who I used to be no more

    I'm still standing, I'm still standing
    I'm still standing, oh, I'm still standing
    I'm still standing, you can't take this joy away Writer/s: MONICA ARNOLD, CHRISTOPHER BRIDGES, BRYAN COX, TAURIAN SHROPSHIRE
