Twist And Turns

Twists And Turns

Sometimes we
 Get let down 
With all the twist 
And turns in life
To keep your head
 Above water
You are ready and
 Determine to fight
You find the cost
 To feed your family
Is more than you can bear
And the worries shows on
Top of your head
With black and grey hair

You try to keep up with 
The browns afraid of
 Being left behind
You can’t afford that 
Big white house
You don’t even
 Have a dime
Your wife is on
 Your back and
Your baby needs
 A pair of shoes
You find yourself in
So much trouble and
Now you got the blues

Your job doesn't
 Pay enough money
So now you are talking
 About leaving
When you think you
 Got it under control
This week you 
Didn't break even
Now your kids are sick
From playing out in the cold
Little Johnny has a fever
With a red and runny nose
You feel bad inside because 
Others have money to burn
Hospital garnish your check
Because you had no insurance

You bow your head
 With a honest heart
Fighting tears as you pray
Sleepless nights, teary eyes
Believing there must be a way
Because life takes away
Whatever you earn
With all its twist and turns
Now you wonder
 How some can make it
And other can hardly stand
Half supporting your family
Makes you feel less of a man

You can’t stand the pressure
So you want to go back home
There are times in the day when
You prefer to be left alone
So you figured out that life
Waits patiently for no one
A lesson that is well learned
And life doesn't play fair
With all its twists and turns
