LISTEN UP, I’M NOT THE GIRL I USED TO BE.

LISTEN UP, I’M NOT THE GIRL I USED TO BE.

My mama always said
I was a poet
That didn’t know it
But saying these words out loud fills me with dread

And I’ve been bottled up
For too long
Gotta sing my song
All these emotions have been piling up

So, listen up:

Don’t blame me for what you’re too afraid to do
Don’t hate me ‘cause I’m not like you
The best things in life are on the other side of terror
Jump, don’t jump; the decision is a horror

Lately, I’ve been living
Like there’s no tomorrow
Baby, it’s so refreshing
Leaving behind all the sorrow

I used to be so afraid
Of the things they’d think
Downgrade, waylaid – but damn it, I’m remade
I’ll run to the edge, get so close to the brink

Because living without fear
Is so much better than with regret
I’m not that sweet little girl anymore, my dear
I’m strong, aiming high; ready, aim, set

My mama always said
I can handle anything
If I give it my everything,
I can knock ‘em, knock ‘em dead
