[Hook:]
Lord knows I had it hard today,
Had it hard today
Still I gotta keep my head up high along the way.
Cause it only gets better, better
It only gets better from here.
It only gets better, better,
It only gets better from here.

(Bridge 1)
Every day I gotta wake up early,
Let it break, thank the Lord at the take,
Get the troops, hit the booth, spiritual, it’s been great.
Practicing my gratitude, life is so beautiful,
Working on that attitude, just because

[Hook:]
It only gets better, better
It only gets better from here.
It only gets better, better,
It only gets better from here.

[Verse:]
Every day I gotta
Trust the God and hustle hard,
My grind is real, my hustle dope.
I’m finding meals, I’m signing deals,
I’m the Gladiator like Russell Crowe.
Yeah, you know it’s real, but I’m focused still
Why you focus shake it like gold field
Cause you’re not in tune, no, you’re not immune
No acclamation, no golden seal.
You sick side, gotta flush it down,
We talk to folks, cover your mouth,
Ain’t nobody gonna cover that shifts
So you go to work, you tuff it down.
You bust it out till you’re out for work,
I know your boss a jerk, you’re gonna cuss a mouth,
Hit it with a bus driver upper-cut,
That clock only thing you punchin' out.
I relate to you, you gotta pay your dues,
When the time is right you gotta make a move.
Your job is what you get paid to do,
Your call is what you’re made to do.
I got faith in you, you’re gonna make it through,
Cause you don’t chase money, money chasing you.
Keep laboring like you got a thing to do,
Won’t taste no foods like they put you.
No more wait for you, you gonna take it now,
You gonna make a vault.
As long as you walk on the earth with that first got to make me proud.
Hey, let me break it down, oh, bless your hearts,
Keep talking bout how stressed you are,
Better talk about how blessed you are.

[Hook:]
Lord knows I had it hard today,
Had it hard today
Still I gotta keep my head up high along the way.
Cause it only gets better, better
It only gets better from here.
It only gets better, better,
It only gets better from here.

(Bridge 2)
Every day I got to get up early, wake the kids,
Get on running made again
Go to work watching in,
Every day I’m hustling.
Fight the traffic, lose my cool,
Get the kids right after school,
Think it’s hard, yeah, that’s true,
This is what I have to do

[Hook:]
Cause it only gets better, better
It only gets better from here.
It only gets better, better,
It only gets better from here.

[Verse:]
What we got is true they listen
Try to talk to gal but is real what I’m spitting
Call Christ by name but still ain’t rising
Set to my lane but still ain’t listening
Got ice in the vans we make so frigid,
Still in the kill brain self when you hit it
Order pills when you pop that, pop that, pop that,
Don’t stop, get it, get it,
Started, we the fighters, we survivors but we ain’t living
My soul is blacker than the Friday after Thanks Giving.
We love that color 25% more like we like to face prison
But just because the president was black there’s no racism?
Post-racial? More like most racial,
They hate for you disgraceful,
Don’t let them take you off your base, let them motivate you.
Don’t let it overtake you, so what another clause,
Survive the storm but riding on the beach in the southern wild.

[Hook:]
Lord knows I had it hard today,
Had it hard today
Still I gotta keep my head up high along the way.
Cause it only gets better, better
It only gets better from here.
It only gets better, better,
It only gets better from here.

Memories live, man, and my memories stay alive
