Aiko, Jhene - W.A.Y.S. Lyrics




At forty-four minutes to four
An angel walked up to my door
Opened the windows to my soul
Told me he thinks that I should know
That there's no slowing down
As the globe spins 'round and 'round
You gotta keep going, gotta keep going
Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
Gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
You gotta keep going, you gotta keep going
You gotta keep going

If there's one thing that I learned
While in those county lines
It's that everything takes time
You have gotta lose your pride
You have gotta lose your mind
Just to find your peace of mind
You have got to trust the signs
Everything will turn out fine

So why aren't you smiling? Why aren't you smiling?
Life can get wild when, you caught in the whirlwind
Lost in the whirlwind, you're chasing the wind
You gotta understand
There's really no end, there's really no beginning
There's really no real, there's really no pretending
There's really no fail, there's really no winning
Cause nothing really is and everything really isn't

At forty-four minutes to four
An angel walked up to my door
Opened the windows to my soul
Told me he thinks that I should know
That life only gets harder but you gotta get stronger
This is for my brother, I do this for my daughter
That's why I keep going, that's why I keep going
That's why I keep going
That's why I keep going, I gotta keep going
I gotta keep going, I gotta keep going
I gotta keep going, gotta keep going
Gotta keep going

I gotta show them, that I can keep going
I gotta keep going, I gotta keep going
I gotta keep going

Why aren't you smiling? Why aren't you smiling?
Life can get wild when, you caught in the whirlwind
Lost in the whirlwind, you're chasing the wind
You gotta understand
There's really no end, there's really no beginning
There's really no real, there's really no pretending
There's really no fail, there's really no winning
Cause nothing really is and everything really isn't
That's why I keep going

  21. 520 Emma

    The only person who makes me feel loved is Jhene ✨🕊

  22. Genae

    i didn't understand any of this when i was younger. i just knew i liked the song, but now that i'm older? Ohh man this song hits hard!

  23. Danelle Johnson

    This song is so calming. W(why). A.(aren’t) Y(you) S(smiling). I smile hearing that. It brings me comfort. My granny and uncle passed away within months of each other I haven’t been the same since, so when she says I gotta keep going it feels like it’s for my granny, and my mom. Right now I’m going through a devastating (to me probably) breakup and I just don’t understand where everything went wrong and why he doesn’t love me anymore. It hurts on a different level. I’m homesick so listening to this song sounds like an internal cry for help and also to let my family know I can do it. I wish I could just get over this breakup; that’s all I want.

  24. Mike Knocks

    this song keeps me going!

  25. Leia’s World

    This song has been giving me strength for so many years 💙💙

  26. Zintle_Ndaliso

    2019 and I still love this song

  27. Alisha James

    This is why I love her music...she takes me to a place where I can think about something deeper than just a man, or what’s on the surface.

  28. Theresa Leary

    I got to keep going

    [Verse 1]
    At forty-four minutes to four
    An angel walked up to my door
    Opened the windows to my soul
    Told me he thinks that I should know
    There's no slowing down
    As the globe spins 'round and 'round

    [Refrain]
    You better keep going, better keep going
    Better keep going, you better keep going
    Better keep going, you better keep going
    You better keep going, you better keep going
    You better keep going

    [Bridge]
    If there's one thing that I learned
    While in those county lines
    It's that everything takes time
    You have gotta lose your pride
    You have gotta lose your mind
    Just to find your peace of mind
    You have got to trust the signs
    Everything will turn out fine

    [Hook]
    So why aren't you smiling? Why aren't you smiling?
    Life can get wild when you're caught in the whirlwind
    Lost in the world when you're chasing the win
    You gotta understand
    There's really no end, there's really no beginning
    There's really no real, there's really no pretending
    There's really no fail, there's really no winning
    Cause nothing really is, and everything really isn't
    [Verse 2]
    At forty-four minutes to four
    An angel walked up to my door
    Opened the windows to my soul
    Told me he thinks that I should know
    That life only gets harder, but you gotta get stronger
    This is for my brother, I do this for my daughter

    [Refrain]
    That's why I keep going, that's why I keep going
    That's why I keep going
    That's why I keep going, I gotta keep going
    I gotta keep going, I gotta keep going
    I gotta keep going, gotta keep going
    Gotta keep going
    I gotta show them that I can keep going
    I gotta keep going, I gotta keep going
    I gotta keep going

    [Hook]
    Why aren't you smiling? Why aren't you smiling?
    Life can get wild when you're caught in the whirlwind
    Lost in the world when you're chasing the win
    You gotta understand
    There's really no end, there's really no beginning
    There's really no real, there's really no pretending
    There's really no fail, there's really no winning
    Cause nothing really is and everything really isn't

    2019... just lost my brother to gun violence her music is truly a blessing for me right now

  43. Madd World Productions

    this got me through when I was about to quit

  44. La'Rose

    Going through a tough time. I have not listened to music in 2 weeks, everything stings been protecting myself from negative words and emotions at all cost. My sister sent this to me, I hesitated to click on it, glad I did. Currently crying my eyes out...but I got to keep going.

  45. PRINCESS MAIAH

    why aren't you smiling😩..

    I listen to this song and Promises every single time I am down. I am bawling right now in my car. It's the only place O can car where my kids won't see me. I feel like I am failing as a Mom. I hate being a single mother you have to stay on at all times. No breaks given no here can you take the girls for a little bit or can you help me. I feel like I am fucking drowning. I get so close and the world comes crashing down to let me know you will never succeed. I am trying so hard I just gotta keep going and where the happy mask. I wish my girls Dad's wanted them. They are my entire world....its nothing I wouldn't give for them....😓
