Life keeps moving forward too fast.

I can't make these moments last.

The clock keeps going tick tock tick,

Every passing second makes me weak.

Everything just feels so damn wrong.

But I've gotta be strong.

I am not gonna let life kill my dreams,

My emotions, my feelings- my whole being.

As long as I believe in myself,

I don't need to worry about a damn thing.


I just can't give up now.

I have to keep going somehow.


I have been through worse, I will get through this.

Time will slow down again, life will be bliss.

I am not gonna kill the 'me' I found,

I am gonna turn my life around.

Nobody believes in me today,

But I will find a way

To make them see,

This new found me!


I just can't give up now.

I have to keep going somehow.


I've got grades on one side, dreams on another.

I'm gonna pick them both up, bring them together.

Dreams and life will never collide

If I keep them both side by side.

I am a strong girl, I can work on both.

I am not gonna give up- that's an oath.

I gotta keep on trying,

Dreams will keep on flying.

Don't try to make them stop!

Catch them with a hop!


I just can't give up now.

I have to keep going somehow.


Life will keep on running,

It will always be this cunning.

But I've gotta tame it, change it,

Bring it under my control.

I've gotta make grades and dreams

Equal parts of my soul.


I just can't give up now.

I have to keep going somehow.


(A/N: I'm a lucky one cause I've got my parents by my side. I just wish the world would stop telling you what to do.)
