Happy With Yourself

I see a light at the end of the tunnel but I think it's a train
I think I'm going to be hit again
It seems like every step forward moves me two steps back
Every mosquito is set on attack

::Chorus::
Mama always told me, "if you look at life like it's a game than you're gonna lose
If you want something better then your gonna need to choose
To be happy with yourself"
She said, "as long as you're moving forward with every step you take
As long as you do positive things with every decision you make
As long as you embrace the ones around you that care
As long as when you have good times you're willing to share
You can be happy with yourself"

Sometimes I get the feeling that I'm always moving uphill
I'm not going anywhere, I lack the will
The wheels are spinning but I can't seem to find the gear
If only Mama was near

Chorus

Have you ever felt you were a hamster on a wheel?
What you thought was important was no big deal
The rat race is running but your never going to win
Everytime I get the feeling I should just give in

Chorus
