Life is good. When trouble comes, there is no better time to count your blessings.



OK now Normally I’m a positive dude, with a positive life and I’m in a positive mood
But sometimes when I think it’s going my way
Something nutty happens, and it all goes sideways
In my mind it’s a straight line of life, then life happens and my sanity takes flight
My humanity brake lights, profanity makes my, sane side look crazy if you know what I mean
I mean c’mon, its 1st world problems I know
And we need sunshine and rain to make the flowers grow
I’m powerful and I got the power yo, to keep the stress at bay and dismay on the go
But, sometimes my minds like a civil war
I try to separate the sides then they quibble more
It’s something’s eating at me about to nibble more
My thoughts be travelling if only they could dribble more

Chorus: It’s alright, on the days when the sun don’t shine so bright
It’s alright trouble may find me in this life
But no matter what I see, whatever it may be I’m a light, you’re a light, it’ll be alright

Its two lions on my shoulders one fear and faith
And I decide which to feed which will be become great
Life is full of uncertainty, and twists of fate
Keep looking up with your head high don’t quit the race
Imma live my life, enjoy this ride, you can do the same only you decide
Imma run my race full of faith and vigor
See my problem may be big but my God is bigger
Seasons will change people come and go
Money come and go it’s a natural flow
And what I focus on will grow so I look for the good
Where I find it in the suburbs and back to the hood
Keep my focus on the future leave behind the past
Be strong and full of courage I was tested and passed
Gotta think like a winner let the rest of ‘em chatter
In the end I’m alright and that’s all that matter

Y’all serving up death you call it making a killing, I devote my energy toward love and healing
You get a little ovation plus compensation, you get cash then I make change across the nations
If I fall 10 feet then I’ll climb 11, gotta keep it coming strong keep my motor revvin
If you ask me for 6 Imma give you 7, Imma ride this wave all the way to heaven
Take the focus off myself look around for a second
Be a blessing to another sure cure for depression
See the game ain’t won with your wealth or possessions
Your obsession is deception try a different direction
Love wins in the end when faith begins, to shine brighter than a lighter in a room that’s dim
Man, we can save a nation plus a whole generation, decide fate together, it’s alright
