Pressing On
Vanessa Bell Armstrong Lyrics


There were days when I thought I wouldn't make it through the night
Hard times all around, I wouldn't let it get me down, that's right

There were times when I thought that I was cursed, yes, I did
But I, I think that I've been through, through the worst

So I just keep pressing on, on and on
God knows I took the licking but I just keep on ticking
Pressing on, on and on
Oh yes, it has been rough but I'm blessed with special love
So I just keep pressing on, I'm gonna keep pressing on

Not a penny in my pocket and no more money in the bank
Oh, I tried to get along just to pay my bills and drew a blank
And through it all I still kept my faith
I didn't think for a moment that I would fail

Still I just keep pressing on, on and on
God knows I took some licking but I just keep on ticking
Pressing on, on and on
Oh yes, it gets so rough but I'm blessed with special love

Still I just keep pressing on, on and on
God knows I've took a licking but I just keep on ticking
Pressing on, on and on
Oh yes, it's been rough

It's gonna get harder as you get closer to your goal
But don't you give up, you can reach the top without selling, selling your soul

Through it all I still kept my faith
I didn't think for a moment that I would fail

So I just keep pressing on, on and on
God knows I took some licking but I'm gonna keep ticking
Pressing on, on and on
Oh yes, it gets so rough, well, I'm blessed with special stuff
Pressing on, you got to press, on and on
If you're gonna make in you got to take and press
Pressing on, on and on
Press on, it might get rough, it seems so tough
You have to press
You can do it
With God's help you can do it

We all need to be encouraged sometime. At times I needed to hear this and I thank God for artist that realize it can get tough and encourage with their gifts to go on. Thank God for Vanessa Bell for being there and doing what she does for us. What better to use your gift for God!!!

Talk about planting seeds ..I remember hearing this song as a kid but I never forgot it..Fast forward to adulthood when I needed strength....I don't go to rap, reggae, or R&B...I go back to my roots that started with this song that was planted in my spirit as a youth...Parents keep playing gospel music around your kids..they may act like they are not listening but it's soaking in their spirit.
