​Survivor

This song is by Robert Cray and appears on the album Time Will Tell (2003).

Trouble all around me everywhere
There was a time when I didn't care
Life was a party
That's all we knew

Now I'm so glad
To be here today
Cause not everybody
Can stand up and say
That they're a survivor
Survivor
Survivor
You've got to choose
If you wanna be a survivor
Survivor
Survivor
Oh, yeah, you've got to choose

Some learn
Some don't
Some live
You know that
Some won't
And time will tell
Turn around
Your life of hell
The good old days
Were such a waste of time

You take a little schoolboy
And teach him who to hate
Then you
Send him to the desert?
For the oil near Kuwait?
You try to change a world that
You don't understand

Now I'm so glad
To be here today
Cause from now
Until forever
And ever yeah
You be lucky if
You can stand up and say
That you're a survivor
Survivor
Survivor
You've got to choose
If you wanna be a survivor
Oh, oh, oh
You've got to choose
If you wanna be a survivor
You've got to choose

Oh, yes,
I'm so glad to be here today
I'm so glad
To be a survivor
You'll have to turn around your life a hell
Can't change anything you don't understand
Hmmm, hmmmm
You oughta be glad
