Stripped (Intro)
Waited a long time for this feels right now
Allow me to introduce myself
Want you to come a little closer
I'd like you to get to know me
a little better....meet the real me

Sorry you cant define me...sorry I break the mold
Sorry that I speak my mind
sorry i do what I'm told
sorry if i dont fake it, sorry i come to real
i will never hide what I really feel, no way oh

So here it is..
no hype..
no glass..
no pretense....
Just me.......Strippedback to top
Can't Hold Us Down
So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cos I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled

When a female fires back
Suddenly the target don't know how to act
So he does what any little boy will do
Making up a few false rumors or two

That for sure is not a man to me
Slanderin' names for popularity
It's sad you only get your fame through controversy
But now it's time for me to come and give you more to say

This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout louder!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave them proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down


obody can hold us down
Nobody can hold us down
Nobody can hold us down
Never can, never will so what am I not supposed to say what I'm saying
Are you offended by the message I'm bringing
Call me whatever cos your words don't mean a thing
Guess you ain't even a man enough to handle what I sing

If you look back in history
It's a common double standard of society
The guy gets all the glory the more he can score
While the girl can do the same and yet you call her a whore

I don't understand why it's okay
The guy can get away with it & the girl gets named
All my ladies come together and make a change
Start a new beginning for us everybody sing

This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
What do we do girls?
Shout louder!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down lil' kim:
Check it - here's something I just can't understand
If the guy have three girls then he's the man
He can either give us some head, sex her off
If the girl do the same, then she's a whore
But the table's about to turn
I'll bet my fame on it
Cats take my ideas and put their name on it
It's aiight though, you can't hold me down
I got to keep on movin'
To all my girls with a man who be tryin to mack
Do it right back to him and let that be that
You need to let him know that his game is whack
And lil' kim and christina aguilera got your back

But you're just a little boy
Think you're so cute, so coy
You must talk so big
To make up for small lil' things
So you're just a little boy
All you'll do is annoy
You must talk so big
To make up for small lil' things

This is for my girls...
This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout louder!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down

This is for my girls all around the world
Who've come across a man who don't respect your worth
Thinking all women should be seen, not heard
So what do we do girls?
Shout louder!
Letting them know we're gonna stand our ground
Lift your hands high and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will, can't hold us down
Spread the word, can't hold us downback to top
Walk Away
What do you do when you know something's bad for you
And you still can't let go?

I was naïve
Your love was like candy
Artificially sweet
I was deceived by the wrapping

Got caught in your web
And I learned how to bleed
I was prey in your bed
And devoured completely

And it hurts my soul
Cause I can't let go
All these walls are caving in
I can't stop my suffering
I hate to show that I've lost control
Cause i, I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need to walk away from

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

I should have known
I was used for amusement
Couldn't see through the smoke
It was all an illusion

Now I've been licking my wounds (licking my wounds)
But the vemon seeps deeper (deeper, deeper)
We both can seduce
But darling you hold me prisoner (prisoner)

I'm about to break
I can't stop this ache
I'm addicted to your allure
And I'm fiendin' for a cure
Every step I take
Leads to one mistake
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need...

I can't mend
This torn state I'm in
Getting nothing in return
What did I do to deserve
The pain of this slow burn
And everywhere I turn
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need to walk away from

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya

Everytime I try to grasp for air
I get smothered in dispair, it's never over, over
Seems I'll never wake from this nightmare,
I let out a silent prayer
That it be over, over

Inside I'm screaming
Begging, pleading no more

I don't know what to do
My heart has been bruised
So sad but it's true
Each beat reminds me of you

It hurts my soul
Cause I can't let go
All these walls are caving in
I can't stop my suffering
I hate to show that I've lost control
Cause i
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need, oh

I'm about to break
And I can't stop this ache
I'm addicted to your allure
And I'm fiendin' for a cure
Every step I take
Leads to one mistake
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need, oh

I can't mend
This torn state I'm in
Getting nothing in return
What did I do to deserve
The pain of this slow burn
And everywhere I turn
I keep going right back
To the one thing that I need to walk away from

I say...
I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

Only thing I need to do is walk away

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk away

I need to get away from ya
I need to walk away from ya
Get away, walk away, walk awayback to top
Fighter
After all you put me through
You'd think I'd despise you
But in the end I want to thank you
Because you made me that much stronger

When i, thought I knew you
Thinking, that you were true
I guess i, I couldn't trust
Called your bluff, time is up
'cause I've had enough
You were, there by my side
Always, down for the ride
But your, joy ride just came down in flames
'cause your greed sold me out of shame, mmhmm

After all of the stealing and cheating
You probably think that I hold resentment for you
But, uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do
I wanna know just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you

'cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohhhh, ohh-yeah ah uhhhuh

Never, saw it coming
All of, your backstabbing
Just so, you could cash in
On a good thing before I realized your game
I heard, you're going around
Playing the victim now
But don't, even begin
Feeling I'm the one to blame
'cause you dug your own grave

After all of the fights and the lies
Yes you wanted to harm me but that won't work anymore
Uh, no more, oh no, it's over
'cause if it wasn't for all of your torture
I wouldn't know how to be this way now, and never back down
So I wanna say thank you

'cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
Makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
It makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in dnial
But in the end you'll see
You-won't-stop-me

I am a fighter and i
I ain't goin' stop
There is no turning back
I've had enough

'cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
Makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
It makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

'cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
Makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
It makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighterback to top
Primer Amor (Interlude)
Yo te contare una historia
De como un puertoriqueño me robo el corazon
Nunca mas he vuelto a amar de esa manera
Quizas jamas lo hare
Es la historia de mi primer amor
Era buen mozo con grandes y profundos ojos marrones
Un bailarin
Juntos nos perdimos en el ritmo del amor
Asi es como comenzoback to top
Infatuation
He comes from a foreign place
An island far away
Intrigues me with every move
Til' I'm breathless, I'm helpless
Can't keep my cool
Steals my heart when he takes my hand
And we dance, to the rhythm of the band
I feel his finger tips, grip my hips
And I slip as we dip into a state of bliss

Mama used to warn me
To beware of those latin lovers
She said I gave my heart too soon
And that's how I became your mother
I said ay mama, you seem to forget
I'm not in love yet
Sweet talk don't win me over
But I realized
Big brown eyes can hypnotize
When he says

I am full blood boricua
Read the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, mami I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers te quiero, te quiero
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can't help my infatuation
It's pure infatuation

Skin the color of cinnamon
His eyes light up and I melt within
Feels so good it must be a sin
I can't stop what I started
I'm giving in
He brings life to my fantasies
Sparks a passion inside of me
Finds the words when I can not speak
In the silence, his heartbeat is music to me

Mama used to warn me
Not to rush love with another
She said I'm not trying to lecture
I just care about my daughter
Ay mama, you seem to forget
I never will let
A man control my emotions
But when he smiles
I feel like a little child
When he says

I am full blood boricua
Read the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, mami I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers te quiero, te quiero
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can't help my infatuation
It's pure infatuation

Caught between my mama's words
And what I feel inside
I'm wanting to explore his world
But a part of me wants to hide
Should I risk it, can't resist it
This has caught me by surprise
Should i, let him take me to puerto rico
I can't hold back no more
Let's go tonight... you adore me, never be lonely

I am full blood boricua
Read the tattoo on his arm
He tells me, mami I need ya
And my heartbeat pumps so strong
Getting lost in el ritmo
He whispers te quiero, te quiero
I begin to give in with no hesitation
Can't help my infatuation

I can't help, what I'm feeling
Infatuated

Loves Embrace (Interlude)
I will tell you, a story
Of how a puerto rican stole my heart
I have never loved that way again
Perhaps, I never will
It is the story of my first love
He was handsome
With big and deep brown eyes
A dancer
Together, we were lost in the rhythm of love
This is how it beganback to top
Loving Me 4 Me
People ask if I'm in love with you
Because I'm sitting here with your picture
And smiling to myself (I smile)
I'm kinda lost in my own thoughts of you
My heart speaks before my mind thinks through
And I blush as I say yes (yes)

What a feeling of vulnerability coming over me
And I'm feeling weak and I can't speak (speak)
Never thought I'd give in so willingly to a human being
With abilities to set me free
Free, make me be me
Makes me want to say

Your lips, your love, your smile, your kiss
I must admit it's a part of me
You please me, complete me, believe me
Like a melody
Your soul, your flow, your youth, your truth is simply proof
We were meant to be
But the best quality that's hookin' me
Is that you're loving me for me (loving me)
Is that you're loving me for me (ooh)

People ask why I'm in love with you
Well, let me start by saying
You got my heart by just being who you are
And what we got is between me and you
It doesn't matter about the money I make
Or what I do, or that I'm a, huh, a star

Unconditionally you're there for me
Undeniably you inspire me, spiritually, oh so sweet
This is meaningful, it's incredible, pleasurable, unforgettable
The way I feel, so sweet
Makes me want to say

Your lips, your love, your smile, your kiss
I must admit it's a part of me
You please me, complete me, believe me
Like a melody
Your soul, your flow, your youth, your truth is simply proof
We were meant to be
But the best quality thats hookin' me
Is that you're loving me for me (loving me)
Is that you're loving me for me (oh oh yeah)

Its so amazing how something so sweet
Has come and rearranged my life
I've been kissed by destiny
Oh, heaven came and saved me
An angel was placed at my feet
This isn't ordinary, he's loving me for me

Stripped of all make up, no need for fancy clothes
No cover ups, push ups
With him, I dont have to put on a show
He loves every freckle, every curve, every inch of my skin
Fulfilling me entirely, taking all of me in
He's real, he's honest, and he's loving me for me
Yeahback to top
Impossible
Its impossible,
Its impossible to love you
If you don‘t, let me know, what your feeling
Its impossible, for me to give you what you need
If your always, hold it from me
I don't know what hurt you
I just, I wanna make it right
Cuz boy I'm sick and tired of tryin to read your mind

Cuz it's impossible
Oh, baby it's impossible
For me to love you... this way
Its impossible
Oh baby it's impossible
If your making it this way
(if you keep treating me this way
Over, and over.)

Impossible to make it easy
If your always trying to make it so damn hard
How can i, how can i, give you all my love baby
If your always, always putting up your guard
This is not a circus
Don't ya play me for a clown
How long can emotions keep on going up and down

Underappreciated
I remember when it all first began
We were tight right from the start
It wasn't long before you came on strong
Trying hard to win my heart
I played hard to get
But I couldn't help but give up my heart in the end
You were thoughtful
Careful not to hurt the relationship

What happened to those days
When you used to be compassionate?
Caring what I thought and said
So attentive, a gentleman
Now it's hard to turn your head
Away from the tv set
Taking me for granted, frankly
It's gotta quit

(chorus)
Ooh I feel underappreciated
Now girls help me out
If you know what I'm talking about
I said I'm feeling underappreciated
For all the time and effort
I have put in this commitment

Take it back again
To the very begining
When our love was something new
Back when romance was important
And not just another thing to do
I was feeling high on loves delight
Thought I'd never come back down
Now it seems that you and me
Have lost our solid ground

After time I realized I seem to give
More than I get
Slowly how things seem to change
After a few years commitment
Used to talk for hours on end
Of our dreams while we lay in bed
I miss those days when you stayed awake
Now you roll over and snore instead

(chorus)

I miss the nice massages
The long phone calls and the
Way you talked how it turned me on
Miss the bubble baths
Had the sweetest laughs
I'm needin' those days back

(chorus) x2back to top
Beautiful
Don't look at me every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, it's hard to breathe
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the fame, I'm so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
So don't you bring me down today

To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The piece is gone and the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words won't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words won't bring you down
Don't you bring me down today...

No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
When the sun is shining through
Then the clouds won't stay
And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The sun won't always shine
(sun won't always shine)
But tomorrow will find a way
All the other times

We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down
We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words can't bring us down
Don't you bring me down today

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down todayback to top
Make Over
I can't believe what you did to me
Down on my knees and I need to break free
All these years you violated me
(violated me)
I don't know why I can't feel inside
I try to hide can't make it alright, it's overkill
Now I'm ready to fight
(ready to fight)
I don't need nobody tryin' to make me over
I just want to live simple and free

I just want to get away
Savin' all your bullshit for another day

Feeling confined like I'm bein' force fed
My visions blurry and I'm lost in regrets
It's overload and I'm outta control
(outta control)
So sick and tired of bein' misused
(so misused)
You're taking me down with all your mental abuse
And I said, I gotta get you outta my head
Everybody's always trying to look me over
I just wanna live simple and free

Chorus:
I just want to get away
Saving all your bullshit for another day
I'm the only one that can rescue me from me

Leaving the house around quarter to five
Zipped up my boots and I'm ready to ride
And I feel so high, I feel so alive
Let down my hair feel the wind on my skin
Crossin' the border where my new life begins
And I close my eyes and take it all in
I don't need nobody tryin' to make me over
(don't make me over)
I just want to live simple and free

Repeat chorus x2

You wanna break me down...(x3)back to top
Cruz
I'm leaving today
Living it
Leaving it
To change

Slowly drifting
Into a peaceful breeze
Tongue tied and twisted
Are all my memories
Celebrating a fantasy come true
Packing all my bags
Finally on the move

I'm leaving today
I'm living it
Oh I'm leaving it
To change

As I'm driving
I'm captured by the view
So much beauty
The road becomes my muse
The heat is rising
And my hand surfs through the wind
Cool, calm, collected
Is the child that lies within

See I'm leaving today
I'm living it
Oh I'm leaving it
To change, oh yeah

See I'm leaving today, oh yes i'm
Living it
Oh I'm leaving it
To change

But somehow I miss it
I think I'll really miss it
One day, ohh

I turn up the radio
And I'm feeling like I've never felt before
Turn down the memories of
Yesteryears and broken dreams and I'm free
Finally free, ooh

Slowly drifting
Into a peaceful breeze, oh
Ohh

Ooh yeah
I'm leaving today, oh yes i'm
Living it, oh yeah
Leaving it to change
To change, oh no

See I'm leaving today, oh yes i'm
Living it, living it
Leaving it, leaving
To change
Ohh oh

I'm leaving today
Oh I'm living it
I'm leaving it to change
Living it, to change
Leaving it
To change
Ooh, oh yeah

Living it, leaving it
Said I'm living it
I'm leaving it
Living it, leaving it
To change
I'm leaving it to change

But somehow I miss it
I think I'll really miss it
One day, yeahback to top
Soar
When they push when they pull,
Tell me can you hold on
When they say you should change,
Can you lift your head high
And stay strong
Will you give up, give in,
When your heart's crying out
That it's wrong
Will you love you for you
At the end of it all

In life, there's gonna be times
When you're feeling low
And in your mind insecurity
Seems to take control
We start to look outside ourselves
For acceptance and approval
We keep forgettin' that
The one thing we should know is

Chorus-
Don't be scared to fly alone,
Find a path that is your own
Love will open every door
Its in your hands,
The world is yours
Don't hold back and always know,
All the answers will unfold
What are you waiting for,
Spread your wings and soar

The boy who wonders is he
Good enough for them
Keeps tryin' to please 'em all
But he just never seems to fit in
Then there the girl who thinks
She'll never ever be good enough for him
Keeps tryin' to change
And that's a game she'll never win

Now in life there's gonna be times
When you're feeling low
And in your mind insecurities
Seem to take control
We start to look outside ourselves
For acceptance and approval
We keep forgetting that the one thing
We should know is

Chorus

In the mirror is where she comes
Face to face with her fears
Her own reflection
Now foreign to her after all these years
All of her life she has tried
To be something beside herself
Now time has passed
And she's ended up someone
Else with regret

What is it in us that makes us feel
The need to keep pretending
Gotta let ourselves be

Repeat chorus 2xback to top
Get Mine, Get Yours
Baby you pretend that things ain't what they seem
All this tension , titling just exactly what we should be
Baby I don't mind us being some kind casual thing
Listen all I want to do for now is have you come and take all of me,
Can you

Chorus:
Put your hands on my waistline
Want your skin up against mine
Move my hips to the baseline
Let me get mine you get yours
Hang a please don't disturb sign
Put my back into a slow grind
Runnin' chills up and down my spine
Let me get mine you get yours

If you see me with a man understand that you can't question me
The feelings taht you caught ain't my fault can't help your jealousy
If you can handle the fact that what we have has got to be
Commitment free. then we can keep this undercover lovin' commin'
Hidden underneath the sheets.
Can you

Chorus

So come on and freak my body we can get nasty naughty
All night private party
Gotta hit that spot just right
Work me like a 9 to 5

It ain't about the kissin' and huggin' cause this is a physical lovin'
Straight sweatin' our bodies are rubbin'
Gotta hit that spot just right work me like a 9 to 5

*whisper*
We have a physcial thing
We make love, but don't fall in love

Let me get mine you get yours

*whisper*
We spend time
Just enough so you get yours, and I get mine
No strings attatched
I want your body
Not your heart

Chorus x2

*whisper*
Yeah,
Don't be shy
I won't bite

Let me get mine you get yoursback to top
Dirrty
Dirrty
Filthy
Nasty
Too dirrty to clean my act up
If you ain't dirrty... you ain't here to party!

Ladies move, gentlemen move
Somebody ring the alarm
A fire on the roof
Ring the alarm (and I'm throwin elbows)
I said ring the alarm (and I'm throwin elbows)
Ring the alarm (and I'm throwin elbows)

Ooh, I'm overdue
Gimme some room, I'm comin' through

And let's get dirrty (that's my jam)

Sweatin' till my clothes come off

It's explosive, speakers are thumpin'
Still jumpin', 6 in the morning
Table dancin', glasses are crashin'
No question, time for some action!

Temperature's up (can you feel it? )

Gonna get my girls
Get your boys
Gonna make some noise...

Gonna get rowdy
Gonna get a little unruly
Get it fired up in a hurry
Wanna get dirrty
It's about time that I came to start the party
Sweat drippin' over my body
Dancin' gettin' just a little naughty
Wanna get dirrty
It's about time for my arrival

Ahh, heat is up
So ladies, fellas, drop your cups
Body's hot from front to back
Move your ass, I like that

Shake a little somethin' (on the floor)

Sweatin' till my clothes come off

Let's get open, cause a commotion
We're still goin', 8 in the morning

Get up, get it up
Yo, that's what's up
Givin' just what you want to the maximum

That's when we take it to the parking lot
And I betcha somebody's gonna call the cops
Uh oh's, here we go's
Ohh... yeahh...

Gonna get rowdy
Gonna get a little unruly
Get it fired up in a hurry

Wanna get dirrty
It's about time that I came to start the party
Sweat drippin' over my body
Dancin' gettin' just a little naughty
Wanna get dirrty
It's about time for my arrival

Wanna get rowdy
Let's get a little unruly
Wanna get dressed in a hurry
Let's get dirrty
It's about time that I came to start the party
Let's get a little unruly
Wanna get dressed in a hurry
Let's get dirrty
It's about time for my arrivalback to top
Stripped, Pt. 2
Sorry if I ain't perfect
Sorry I don't give a -what-
Sorry I ain't a diva
Sorry just know what I want
Sorry I'm not a virgin
Sorry I'm not a slut
I won't let you break me
Think what you want

To all my dreamers out there - I'm with you
All my underdogs, ha - I feel you
Lift your head high and stay strong
Keep pushin' onback to top
The Voice Within
Young girl don't cry
I'll be right here when your world starts to fall
Young girl it's alright
Your tears will dry, you'll soon be free to fly

When you're safe inside your room you tend to dream
Of a place where nothing's harder than it seems
No one ever wants or bothers to explain
Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

Chorus:
When there's no one else, look inside yourself
Like your oldest friend just trust the voice within
Then you'll find the strength that will guide your way
You'll learn to begin to trust the voice within

Young girl don't hide
You'll never change if you just run away
Young girl just hold tight
Soon you're gonna see your brighter day

Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
It's so hard to stand your ground when you're so afraid
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
When you look outside look inside to your soul

Chorus

Life is a journey
It can take you anywhere you choose to go
As long as you're learning
You'll find all you'll ever need to know
(be strong)
You'll break it
(hold on)
You'll make it
Just don't forsake it because
No one can tell you what you can't do
No one can stop you, you know that I'm talking to you

Chorus

Young girl don't cry I'll be right here when your world starts to fallback to top
I'm OK
Once upon a time there was a girl
In her early years she had to learn
How to grow up living in a war that she called home
Never know just where to turn for shelter from the storm
Hurt me to see the pain across my mother's face
Everytime my father's fist would put her in her place
Hearing all the yelling I would cry up in my room
Hoping it would be over soon

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday
And I'm ok

I often wonder why I carry all this guilt
When it's you that helped me put up all these walls I've built
Shadows stir at night through a crack in the door
The echo of a broken child screaming please no more
Daddy, don't you understand the damage you have done
To you it's just a memory, but for me it still lives on

Bruises fade father, but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so, so afraid
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday

It's not so easy to forget
All the lines you left along her neck
When I was thrown against cold stairs
And every day I'm afraid to come home
In fear of what I might see there

Bruises fade father but the pain remains the same
And I still remember how you kept me so afraid
Strength is my mother for all the love she gave
Every morning that I wake I look back to yesterday
And I'm ok
I'm okback to top
Keep on Singin' My Song
Oohhh, yeah, oooh huh
I woke up this morning with a smile on my face
& nobody's gonna bring me down today
Been feeling like nothings been going my way lately
So I decided right here and now that my outlooks gotta change

That's why I'm gonna
Say goodbye to all the tears I've cried
For everytime somebody hurt my pride
Feeling like they won't let me live life
& take the time to look at what is mine

I see every lesson completely
I thank God for what I got from above
I believe they can take anything from me
But they can't succeed in taking my inner peace
They can say all they wanna say about me

But I'm gonna carry on
Keep on singing my song

I never wanna dwell on my pain again
There's no use in reliving how I hurt back then
Remembering all of the hell I felt when I was running out of faith
Every step I vowed to take was towards a better day

Cos I'm about to
Say goodbye to every single lie
& all the fears I've held too long inside
Everytime I felt I could try
All the negativity I had inside

For too long I've been struggling. I couldn't go on
But now I've found I'm feeling strong and moving on
I believe they can take anything from me
But they can't succeed in taking my inner peace
They can say all they wanna say about me

But I'm gonna carry on
I'm gonna keep on singing my song

Whoa, & everytime I tried to be what they wanted from me
It never came naturally
So I ended up in misery, wasn't able to see
All the good around me
They wasted so much energy on what they thought of me
Simply just remembering to breathe

I'm human, I ain't able to please
Everyone at the same time, so now I find
My peace of mind living one day at a time

I'm human and I answer to one god
It comes down to one love
Until I get to heave above I've made the decision
Never to give up
Til the I day I die no matter what I'm gonna carry on & keep on singing my song.....

(they can't take anything from me)

I believe that they can do what they wanna.
Say what they wanna say

(they can say what they wanna)

But I'm gonna keep on
(keep on )
I believe it
That they can take from me
But they can't take my inner peace

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Say what you wanna say, but I'm gonna sing my song
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
