When everything is aiming to break you

And you feel you’re about to let them win

When life’s looking for a victim

Mija, don’t give in

Tienes que ser stronger than the stories

Mas fuerte than the lies

When life backs you in a corner

Don’t ever compromise

You have to smile through all the damage

Because the world is watching as you fall

When you feel the weakness rising

Just keep pushing through it all

Life no está echa de rainbows

And flowers can’t heal your pain

So fight your own inner battles

And never let them win.
