Here are 15 Eminem lyrics to help you find that inner strength


This is your moment, and every single minute you spend
Tryna hold on to it because you may never get it again.

Till I colapse

Success is my only motherf—in’ option, failures not!

Lose yourself

You don’t get another chance, life is no Nintendo game.

Love the way you lie

When I say I’ma do something I do it, I don’t give a damn what you think, I’m doing this for me.

Not afraid

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo!

Lose yourself

Seize the moment try to freeze it and own it, squeeze it and hold it. ‘Cause we consider these minutes golden.

Sing for the moment

There’s no mountain I can’t climb. There’s no tower too high. No plane that I can’t learn how to fly.

My dad’s gone crazy

God gave you shoes to fit you. So put ‘em on and wear ‘em. Be yourself man be proud of who you are… Never let anyone tell you you ain’t beautiful.


Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us. Money’ll brainwash you and leave your ass mindless, while snakes slither in the grass spineless.

Rock bottom

Why do we say that until we get that person that we think’s

Gonna be that one, then once we get ’em it’s never the same

You want them when they don’t want you

Soon as they do, feelings change

Space Bound

My confidence is up, this stage is my pedestal

I’m unstoppable, Incredible Hulk

You’re trapped in my medicine ball

Drop the world

I’m standing up, Imma face my demons, I’m manning up, Imma hold me ground.

Not Afraid

No wonder I had to unlearn everything my brain was taught

Guts Over Fear

The passion in the flame is ignited

You can’t put it out once we light it


In the land of the killers a sinner’s mind is a sanctum

Holy or unholy, only have one homie.

Sing for the moment

eminem-lyrics-to-motivate-youBut you gotta search within you
And gotta find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you
And get that motivation to not give up
And not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face, and collapse.

Till I colapse

‘Cause some things just don’t change

It’s better when they stay the same

Cold wind blows

I said this looks like a job for me
So everybody, just follow me!
‘Cause we need a little controversy
‘Cause it feels so empty without me

Without me
