Ill never be an angel
Ill never be a saint its true
Im too busy surviving
Whether its heaven or hell
Im gonna be living to tell, so

No risk no glory [no glory]
A little

Up and down and all around
Its all about survival

Heres my question [my question]
Does your criticism [criticism]
Have you caught up in what you cannot see
Well if you give me respect
Then youll know what to expect, a little
