Monáe, Janelle - Victory Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
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 till 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

[Chorus:]
Cause to be victorious
You must find glory in the little things
To be victorious
You must find glory in the little things

[Verse 2:]
Surrounded by the schemes and senseless lives
And blaming others, feeling victimized
Oh tomorrow, one day they'll know
To win you'll 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

[Chorus]

There's a greater love
In the little things (oh the little things)

[Chorus]

It's the little things, all the little things
You'll find a greater love in the little things
There's a greater love, love, love...

    Janelle Monáe is just marvelous and I have just got to know her stuff now.
    This song is a treat, the groove reminds me of "Little Wing" by Jimi Hendrix, also sung by Sting and The Corrs.

  7. John Walter

    Whewwww...Love the beginning. So hot!....Damn, J.....Sang Goddess!!

  8. joe a

    I'm endlessly excited for Dirty Computer
    I've been revisiting her discog the past few weeks, and this song will always be in my top 3 from this album. from the first time I heard it, it's reminded me of The Sweetest Thing by Lauryn Hill. both songs = classic soulful exquisiteness

  9. Anthony Paris

    Such a powerful piece. Its beautiful, uplifting and borderline spiritual all while being simple and easy to listen to.

    It reminds me "ex factor" of Lauryn

    Flávio Ribeiro To Zion

    Jarrell Debose

    So reminiscent of that Album #Queens

  17. Ché Moni

    Not only does this give me a Lauryn Hill vibe as others have mentioned, but the style & harmonies used for the ad-libs past the 3:08 mark, remind me of D'Angelo's ad-libs in "Lady" around the ending of the song (more specifically, in him singing "...you're my lady... my divine lady...").

    I appreciate how true she is not only her fans, but to herself. Since I've been listening to her from "The Audition" album, she has yet to lose herself; only grow & develop in her skills. And I feel that's totally captured within this song!

    Mr.Perseverance1956

    MG !!! I love this song...So inspiring. Well written and delivered by Janelle. Just want you need on a rainy day. Its a shame these singers don't get push center stage American just don't appreciate the talent in ppl enough.

  32. Lachel Moosins

  33. Tammar Tucker

    @Montrez Rambo yes this is in the style of Lauren Hill all day just a higher pitched voice. It amazes me that you noticed that too.

  34. Dominic Washington

    Tomorrow im playing her whole catalog lol

  35. JustMister13

    Love that woman's voice. 

    JustMister13

    Heh. 5 years later and this is one of my all time favorite songs.

  36. steve l.

    @TheEditorialWizard "like a mustard seed" (faith)

  37. KLaTV

    Replay after replay... I need to stop being lazy and sync this on my iPhone.

  38. Nefaria Le Leurre

    TImbre wise, she reminds me quite a bit of Solange but as far as enunciation and tone she sounds like Lauryn Hill. In fact, if Luaryn Hill was a soprano she'd most likely sound like Janelle Monae.

  39. Ramomarka

    what does she say at 3:56?

    RsM Campbell

    Ramomarka "it's the LITTLE THINGS, like the MUSTARD SEED" (from the bible, faith the size of mustard seed could move a mountain)

  40. Roberto Chiodi

    amazing song. amazing voice.
