Better Days

Hey lil' mama why you look like that?
don't let these problems get you down
you've got to hold your head up
and wipe away that frown
'cuz i know that you know that
better days come around

it seems hard at times
you've got so much on your mind
some days you just wanna curl up and sleep
but you've got mouths to feed
everyone talkin at you is just noise
sister girl, you're strong, keep your poise
you try so hard to make everyone proud
while feeling sad and lonely in a crowd
you try to pull yourself together while being pulled in different ways
baby girl don't forget that there's always better days

i know sometimes you'd rather throw in the towel
God don't put anything in front of you that you can't do
and i know you, you always come through
so hold your head up
and wipe away that frown
'cuz you should always remember
better days come around

yes, it's always easier said than done
people looking in never knowing where you're from
why you feel the way you feel
sometimes you don't even know the deal
tears fall and you don't know why
sometimes it feels better just to cry
it's so hard and it's so real
but trust that change comes always
it's just as sure as time
and for you, in that time there will be better days

so hold your head up
put on your shiny crown
and never ever forget
the better days that come around
