Ooh, la la la.
La la la la la.

Ev'ry day I realize that
this might be the last day of my life
Walking down the street, I find, yeah,
I'm coming closer to losing my mind.
'Cause when it rains, it pours;
isn't life worth more?
I don't even know what I am hustlin' for.
You've got to do what you've got to do
just to make it through
all the hard times that's gonna pace you.

This is the life, striving to survive.
This is the life, striving to survive.
This is the life.

Livin' will always be a struggle,
lookin' for someone true to love you.
Lookin' back, I see all the hard roads.
This madness makes me wanna hide.
I work slowly, eternally. I'm dying.
Pillowcase is wet from all my crying.
There is nothing more to be here for.
Take me away; I can't live that life no more.

This is the life, striving to survive.
This is the life, striving to survive.
This is the life.

This is the life, striving to survive.
This is the life, striving to survive.
This is the life.

Tryin' to get over.
Tryin' to get over.
Tryin' to get over.
Tryin' to get over.
Tryin' to get over.
