No father figure in the house
And I'm wondering how
I'm gonna work it out
Oh
My friends keep on telling me
How I don't need that man
But they don't really understand

There's far
Too many pressures in reality
With dealing with the pain
The stress and poverty
And I gotta be myself because
There's nobody else for me
(Noo)

(Hang in there with me)
Sometimes it takes
A different kind of love
To raise a child
(So don't give up)
So don't give up
(When pressures come down)
Sometimes it takes
A different kind of dream
To make you smile
(So raise it up)
So raise
(Hang in there with me)
Sometimes we need
Another helping hand
To show the way
(So don't give up)
So don't give up
(When pressures come down)
Sometimes it seems impossible
And that's why we pray
(So raise it up)
We pray

Seems to be
Nothing left for me
Momma's gone
Daddy didn't wanna be
And now I'm all by myself
Wondering where is love
Or should I just give up
(Ya kno)

Life falls down on me
Cuts into my soul
But I know I got the strength
To make it through it all
Cause I'm still standing tall
Breaking through these walls
I'm gonna give my all

Feeling like
A motherless child
Pain cuts into my soul
It's bringing me down
Can't find my smile
On the face
Of a motherless child
I'm gonna break
Down these walls
Gonna give my all
Ya know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeahhhhh

(Hang in there with me)
Sometimes it takes
A different kind of love
To raise a child
(So don't give up)
So don't give up
(When pressures come down)
Sometimes it takes
A different kind of dream
To make you smile
(So raise it up)
So raise it up
(Hang in there with me)
Sometimes we need
Another helping hand
To show you the way
(So don't give up)
(When pressures come down)
Sometimes it seems impossible
That's why we pray
So raise it up
