I tried to stay on the straight and narrow
But I´ve walked a crooked path
And I´ve felt worthy of forgiveness
And deservin´ heaven´s wrath
Right on the money and off by a mile
Ahead of my time and way out of style.

Chorus:
But I´m hangin´ tough, I ain´t had enough
I ain´t givin´ up on life or love
Well I try to stay away from the bottle
But I´ve reached out for the glass
I try to pull back on the throttle
But I still run out of gas
I´ve been an angel, but never a saint
Hung with the devil, don´t nobody faint.

Chorus:
´cause I´m hangin´ tough, I ain´t had enough
I ain´t givin´ up on life or love

Tag:
Yesterday´s history, today is a chance
Tomorrow is a mystery, so I´m makin´ plans


Chorus:
To keep hangin´ tough, I ain´t had enough
I ain´t givin´ up on life or love
I keep hangin´ tough, I ain´t had enough
I ain´t givin´ up on life or love
Life or love.
