Transformative Thursdays: “Rock It”

Rock It!

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath

Scared to let you know how I really felt

Sitting at home alone in my bed

Wishing you were with me instead

I let my thoughts push me farther from you

Until finally I got a little courage to pursue you

Thoughts held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Pushing aside the ugly weights

No longer gonna give in, going after you

Because I’m beautiful, I win, win!

Thoughts held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready ‘cause I’ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now

I got the beauty of a diamond, a jewel, shining through the dark.

‘Cause I am beautiful and you’re gonna see me rock it.

Better, better than a model!

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You’re gonna hear me roar

Now, I’ve got you for myself

No longer thoughts swimming in my head

I’m ready to be me ‘cause I am beautiful!

Thoughts held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Pushing aside the ugly weights

No longer gonna give in, going after you

Because I’m beautiful! I win, win!

Thoughts held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready ‘cause I’ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now

I got the beauty of a diamond, a jewel, shining through the dark

‘Cause I am beautiful and you’re gonna see me rock it

Better, better than a model

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

ROAR (by Katy Perry)

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath

Scared to rock the boat and make a mess

So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice

I let you push me past the breaking point

I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Already brushing off the dust

You hear my voice, you hear that sound

Like thunder gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Louder, louder than a lion

‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

You’re gonna hear me roar

Now I’m floating like a butterfly

Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes

I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Already brushing off the dust

You hear my voice, you hear that sound

Like thunder gonna shake the ground

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough

I see it all, I see it now
