Jennings, Lyfe - It Coulda Been Worse Lyrics




Yeah, we're always complaining about how bad stuff is for us, complaining about the light bill. Hell, there's people that don't even got lights, you know?

So, I wanna tell everybody listening, "Man, embrace your struggle 'cause no matter what, man, true story—it could've been worse."

I was going through some changes in my life,
Cussing and complaining every night,
Telling God the way he's treating me ain't right,
And how I don't deserve this.

Then a voice from somewhere came to me
And said, "You got the audacity
To fix your mouth to disrespect."
How soon we forget.

And he said,
"Remember, when you were sick and you got better.
Remember, I put your family back together.
Remember, I could have cut you off forever.
So no matter how bad you think it hurts,

It could've been worse,
You could've been dead,
You could've been paralyzed,
Confined to a bed,

You could've lost everything,
You should've lost everything,
But somebody's watching you,
And gave you another chance."

It's so funny how we think we got it rough,
When there are babies who got mommas hooked on drugs,
And this depression got some folks losing their home
They spent their whole lives saving for.

It's petty in comparison,
And tell me, you would switch places with them.
You only go to God to complain,
But have you ever went to him to just say "Thanks"?

And don't you
Remember, he didn't let that disease take you.
Remember, he didn't even get a thank you.
Remember, how could he love you just to hate you.
So no matter how bad it hurts,

It could've been worse,
You could've been dead,
You could've been paralyzed,
Confined to a bed,

You could've lost everything,
You should've lost everything,
But somebody's watching you,
And gave you another chance.

It could've been worse,
You could've been dead,
You could've been paralyzed,
Confined to a bed,

You could've lost everything,
You should've lost everything,
But somebody's watching you,
And gave you another chance.

I have been listening to this song everyday for over a year to keep from hurting her. He is n constant pain and I can't help him. What do I do youtube?? How do I cope with my man ready to give up??
