No Work, All Play – Hilary Duff

This song sums up my feelings very well. I think that it is important to work hard in life so that you deserve to play. I also think that it takes time to get to know yourself and what you want. So many people in my generation seem afraid of hard work and self improvement. I find it sad. Remember that not trying is failing by default. Push yourself harder, Go a little further, Want more out of life, Help others, Help yourself. I found this song inspirational. Maybe it will speak to some of you as well.

No Work, All Play – Hilary Duff
Some people go through life like it’s a breeze
They float their way through days
And never feel the grey
And their tears fall
But they don’t sting
Their teporary marks
Not always from the heart
They live lightly
Breathe so easy
You’re digging in
To what’s within

[Chorus]
No work all play
What a mistake
Let the clouds roll in and fill the sky
Get that melancholy feeling inside and
Work on yourself
Don’t run from the pain you’ve felt
You don’t have to slide
Life’s not one big high

Sometimes it’s hard lookin’ at yourself
You’d rather place the blame
Then point it your own way
I still do hide from my feelings myself
But I’m trying hard these days
Not to procrastinate
And face my fate
Stay on my case

[Repeat Chorus]

No one is perfect
No one’s the same
We’ve all got problems
We haven’t faced
The challenges well
They’ll make you strong
Don’t put them off for too long

You gotta know yourself
To be yourself
You gotta do it all the way
You gotta know yourself
To be yourself
It’s a struggle everyday
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
You gotta do it all the way
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
And it’s a struggle everyday

[Repeat Chorus x2]

You gotta know yourself to be yourself
You gotta do it all the way
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
And it’s a struggle everyday
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
You gotta do it all the way
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
And it’s a struggle everyday
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
And it’s a struggle everyday
You gotta know yourself to be yourself
And it’s a struggle everyday
