Work In Progress (Growing Pains) Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Look in my eyes.
Tell me what you see
Do you see perfection in me?
To you, do I look complete?
Now take one more look pass my celebrity.
That's where you'll find the real me.
To you, do I still look complete?

[Pre-Chorus:]
I got every material thing I could ever need. (Hmmm)
I got the love from my fans that adore me. (Yeah)
And I'm grateful. (And I thank you so very much)
But my love for myself is lacking a little bit. (Just a little bit)
I can admit that I'm working on me. (Hmmm)
Staying faithful. (Staying faithful and what I'm tryna say is...)

[Chorus:]
Just like you sometimes I get down. (Just like you, I get down)
Sometimes I just wanna cry. (I just wanna cry)
Sometimes I get depressed.
And just like me, tryna be complete. (And just like me, tryna be complete, ohh)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress.

[Verse 2:]
Life can be difficult.
No one promised that it would be...
(No one promised it would be sunshine all the time)
Sunshine all the time, easy.
Some pain is guaranteed.
But it ain't impossible.
You can find the joy, you see.
Took me a while but I did finally.
Open your eyes and you will see I'm just like you.

[Chorus:]
Just like you sometimes I get down. (Get down, ohh)
Sometimes I just wanna cry. (Just wanna cry)
Sometimes I get depressed. (So depressed)
And just like me, tryna be complete. (Just like me, tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress. (We're all just, ohh)

[Bridge:]
Anybody knowing what it is to struggle. (Ohhh)
Never ever running in the face of trouble. (Oh yeah)
Say "I'm with you". (I'm with you)
"I feel you". (I feel you)
"I'm with you".
Just like you... (Sometimes I fall but I feel your pain. We're all the same)
(We're all the same, ohhh I am just like you)

[Chorus:]
Just like you sometimes I get down.
Sometimes I just wanna cry.
Sometimes I get depressed. (So depressed)
And just like me, tryna be complete. (Oh just like, just like me) (Tryna be complete)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress. (Just understand we're all a work in progress)

Just like you sometimes I get down. (Yeah, yeah, yeah, ohhh)
Sometimes I just wanna cry.
Sometimes I get depressed. (Can you hear me, can you feel me?)
And just like me, tryna be complete. (I am, I am, I'm just like you)
Just understand we're all just a work in progress. (A work in progress)
