Lyrics

The Essence of Life
©Words and music by Chris Chickering (Chris Chickering Music,

You gotta love the pain
Love the struggle
'Cause this is the essence of life

You gotta love the fear
Love the trouble
'Cause it's all a part of the ride

You gotta face the mirror
Face the music
And take every day as it comes

And when you stop fakin' it
That's when you start makin' it

Every day gets a little bit brighter, oh
Every load gets a little bit lighter, oh
When you come to terms and reconcile
That it's gonna go wrong
then it's gonna go right sometimes
That's where you'll find
Yea, the essence of life

You gotta love the falls
Love the failures
'Cause that's how you know you're alive

You gotta love the tears
Love the heartaches
'Cause they make you stronger inside

You gotta welcome strange
And crazy days
'Cause change is the only sure thing

And once you accept the fact
Is when you start finding that

Every day gets a little bit brighter, oh
Every load gets a little bit lighter, oh
When you come to terms and reconcile
That it's gonna go wrong
then it's gonna go right sometimes
That's where you'll find
The essence of life

Every day gets a little bit brighter, oh
Every load gets a little bit lighter

Every day gets a little bit brighter, oh
Every load gets a little bit lighter, oh
When you come to terms and reconcile
That it's gonna go wrong
then it's gonna go right sometimes
That's where you'll find
The essence of life
Yea the essence of life
The essence of life...

Na na na na, na na na na

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na
