I woke up this morning with a smile on my face
And nobody’s gonna bring me down today
Been feeling like nothing’s been going my way lately
But I decided right here and now that my outlooks gonna change

That’s why I’m gonna
Say goodbye to all the tears I’ve cried
And everytime somebody hurt my pride
Feeling like they won’t let me live life
And take the time to look at what is mine
I see every lesson so clearly
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 from me
They can say all they wanna say about me
But I’m gonna carry on
I’m gonna keep on singing my song

I never wanna dwell on the pain again
There’s no use in reliving how I hurt back then
Remembering too well, the hell I felt when I was running out of faith
Every step I’m about to take is towards a better day

Cause I’m about to
Say farewell to every single lie
& All the fears I’ve held too long inside
Everytime I felt I couldn’t 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 from me
They can say all they wanna say about me
But I’m gonna carry on
I’m gonna keep on singing my song

Everytime I tried to be what they wanted from me
It never came naturally
So I ended up in misery, was unable to see
All the good around me
Wasted so much energy on what they thought of me
Then simply just remembering to breathe

Oh, I’ve learned I’m humanly unable to please
Everyone at the same time, so now I’ve found
My peace of mind living one day at a time

At the end I answer to one god
It comes down to one love
til’ I get to heaven above
I have made the decision
Never to give in
Til the I day I die no matter what

I’m gonna carry on, I will keep on singing my song.

I believe that they can do what they wanna.
Say what they wanna say
But I’m gonna keep on

I believe they can take anything from me
But they can’t take my inner peace

Oh, yeah…
Say what you wanna say, but I’m gonna sing my song

—Christina Aguilera, “Singing my Song”
