[Verse 1:]
The day seems so very long
But I'm trying to be strong
(Trying to be strong)
Well, hold on, I say
Things will soon turn my way
And then I'll have a clear view
But I gotta keep

[Chorus:]
Keep your head to the sky
I don't need to tell you why
Keep your head to the sky
I don't need to tell you why

[Verse 2:]
I sometimes get worried
And I wonder why I worry
Cause I know that I will make it through the storm
I'm tryin not to lose my cool
Because if in this world I do
The only person that's gonna miss out on everything is me
And I gotta keep

[Chorus]

Oooh, ooh
Oh, ooh, oh
Keep your head up
Don't you look down for nobody
Don't you do it, don't you do it
Keep your head

[Chorus]

Everyday's a struggle
But struggling to be
Is very hard, so very hard
Because I'm out here trying to do the right thing
And when I look around here's the wrong thing
Tempting me to make me disagree
About how I feel about me
But I gotta keep

[Chorus]
