Pressure of Life

Pressure of life

Sit down take a breather, you deserve it.
With all the damaging waves coming at you, trying to hold on without taking a break will destroy you.
The wolves in sheep clothing will attach on to you because you're an opportunity, that's great.
Never can you fail in life, if you just take a break.
Come back to the drawing board and never hesitate.
Sit down take a breather, you deserve it.
Let's go back in time and see where you made your mistakes.
Count back one, I should have did this.
Two, I shouldn't of did that!
Three, well let me try again and resuscitate back to these big ole fakes!
The pressure of life is being able to have that poker face and still be great!
Sit down take a breather, you deserve it.
We sit here looking for all the attention to be wanted, desired and respected.
The pressure of life is far from over!
Just remember it's okay to take a break!
