Life is a mountain of a journey 
With rivers to cross at every turn
It's always something or too much of nothing 
But if there's one thing I've learned 

When life hits hard you gotta hit a little harder bear that heavy load
It's all gonna get a lot better farther along the road
Lord knows when you're down so down you gotta dig a little deeper
Keep reaching for the sky

And when life hits hard there's bound to be a reason why
Everyone's searching for the answer 
When maybe this only thing to do
Is cherish the good times and hold on through the bad times 

Trustin' that time will deliver you
And when life hits hard
In this one way we're all alike 
We share a strong will to survive 

And when life hits hard
And when life hits hard there's bound to be a reason why
When life hits hard
