Victory

This song is by Janelle Monáe and appears on the album The Electric Lady (2013).

Original video
Today I feel so troubled deep inside
I wish the tears would roll back in my eyes
Will I rise?
Oh I'll keep singing songs until the pain goes

If loving you means fighting til the end
Then I'll fight harder baby just to win
And if tomorrow shall come to me
I'll count your every kiss as a victory

Cause to be victorious
You must find glory in the little things
To be victorious
You must find glory in the little things

Surrounded by the schemes and senseless lies
And blaming others feeling victimized
Oh tomorrow one day they'll know
To win you'd have to lose all the things you know

Trying to light the fire deep inside
Father take all the fears and sorrow from my life
Cause when the rain falls my seed will grow
I'll be further to my dreams tomorrow

Cause to be victorious
You must find glory in the little things
To be victorious
You must find glory in the little things

There's a greater love
a greater love in the little things
Oh in the little things

Cause to be victorious
(You'll find a greater love)
You must find glory in the little things
(Just find the greater love)
To be victorious
You must find glory in the little things

It's the little things
All the little things
You'll find a greater love
In the little things
There's a greater love

It's the little things
Like a mustard seed
It's the little things
Oh the little things
Let me hear you say love
