Mary Mary is an American contemporary gospel duo, consisting of sisters Erica Atkins-Campbell (born (1972-04-29)April 29, 1972) and Trecina "Tina" Atkins-Campbell (born (1974-05-02)May 2, 1974). The duo are often credited along with Kirk Franklin for broadening the fan base of urban contemporary gospel in the 2000s by introducing elements of soul music, hip hop, funk and jazz. Mary Mary broke onto the music scene with their popular song "Shackles (Praise You)"—which is considered one of the pioneering songs of urban contemporary gospel music. The group's name, as stated in an interview is inspired by the two famous Mary's from the Bible; Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, and Mary Magdelene. more »

Hoo woo, hoo woo
Any day now, it's what I kept telling myself
On the last mile, on the road to somewhere
But along the way I (got stopped by)
All the wind and the rain and

To my surprise and it shook my heart
Blew my mind
I had to cry so many nights
I had to hold on for my life
But all I can say now is that I survived

[Chorus]
I survived, I survived, I survived
I survived, I survived, I survived
Oh, Lord I had a lot on me
Truth be told, it almost broke me
But I'm so glad
I survived, I survived, I survived now

Now hurt and pain were sometimes my company
Separated from those, then I suppose
I didn't have no guarantees
But one thing, I knew for sure was
I've had my share of ups and downs

I made it even though
Oh, it shook my heart blew my mind
I had to cry so many nights
I've had to hold on for my life
But all I can say now is that I survived

[Chorus]

I know you heard this message before
I wanna tell you once more it's alright, you will
I know the road your on might seem long
But I encourage you to hold on, hold on
You will survive, I do believe you will
But all I can say now is that I survived

[Chorus]

When the weight of the world's
All on your shoulder
Just remember, remember, remember
To keep your head up and survive

Oh, Lord I had a lot on me
Truth be told, it almost broke me
But I'm so glad
I survived, I survived, I survived now
I survived, I survived, I survived 
I survived, I survived, I survived now
Oh, Lord I had a lot on me
Truth be told, it almost broke me
But I'm so glad
I survived, I survived, I survived now
