Well baby baby, I can tell you
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair
It's had tacks in it
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor

The tacks are the minor things that happened
The splinters are the ones hurt me inside
And the boards are, even worse because
They affect me all the the time inside and outside

Sometimes I, wonder if this
Whole thing can get easier
I keep on, taking steps back
Because every stairstep is a day in my life
So that's why, I try to stay positive now

Cause I can just tell you that
Life for me ain't been no crystal staircase
Every step I'm taking is always a challenge
The things that can bring me down
Are making me take a step back
But I had never ever gave up on my life
It can be so hard, but you'll make it through
Just trust me, that you can get it through
So whatever happens, it happens
I'm not even close to reaching the top
So please for me, don't give up right now
Cause life can't be such a simple crystal staircase

But all the time
I've always been climbing on
And reachin' landings
And turning corners,
And sometimes goin' in the dark
Where there ain't been no light.

And it can be hard
To lose yourself
In this journey
All you gotta do is
Have a little faith
And I promise you'll make it

Sometimes I, can get so confused
Because I always have something to lose
And I can never seem to get it back
But someday I can find it again
I just know it, I know!

Cause I can just tell you that (I can tell you that)
Life for me ain't been no crystal staircase
Every step I'm taking is always a challenge
The things that can bring me down
Are making me take a step back
But I had never ever gave up on my life
It can be so hard, but you'll make it through
Just trust me, that you can get it through
So whatever happens, it happens
I'm not even close to reaching the top
So please for me, don't give up right now
Cause life can't be such a simple crystal staircase (Cause life can't be)

So boy, don't you turn back.
Don't you set down on the steps
'Cause you finds it's kinda hard.
Don't you fall now --
I'm still going now
I'm still climbin',
I'm holding on
I'm holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Don't let go
Just believe in yourself
You can get through the troubles
Oh Yeah!

Sometimes I, wonder if this
Whole thing can get easier
I keep on, taking steps back
Because every stairstep is a day in my life
So that's why, I try to stay positive now (now)

Cause I can just tell you that (I'll tell yoooooouuuuuuu! )
Life for me ain't been no crystal staircase (Every step I'm taking)
Every step I'm taking is always a challenge (Always)
The things that can bring me down (Don't you bring me down)
Are making me take a step back (I never ever gave up on life)
But I had never ever gave up on my life (It can be so hard)
It can be so hard, but you'll make it through (Make it through)
Just trust me, that you can get it through (So)
So whatever happens, it happens (I'm not even close to reaching)
I'm not even close to reaching the top (So)
So please for me, don't give up right now (Cause life can't be)
Cause life can't be such a simple crystal staircase (A simple crystal staircase)
No no no

Yeah
(Fade)
