to the sky, i rise
spread my wings, and fly
i leave the past behind
and say goodbye to the scared child inside
i sing for freedom, and for love
i look at my reflection
embrace the woman i’ve become
the unbreakable lotus in me
i now set free

army of me

i’ve been standing where you left me, left me
praying that you’d come and get me, get me
but now i’ve found my second wind, wind
now i’ve found my second skin, skin

well i know what you were thinking
you thought you’d watch me fade away, away
when you broke me into pieces
but i gave each piece a name, a name

one of me is wiser
one of me is stronger
one of me’s a fighter
and there’s a thousand faces of me
and we’re gonna rise up
yeah we’re gonna rise up
for every time you wronged me
well you’re gonna face an army, army of me

welcome to my revolution
all your walls are breaking down, down
it’s time you had a taste of losing, losing
time the tables turned around, round

i see a glimpse of recognition
but it’s too little it’s too late, it’s too late
and what you thought was your best decision
just became your worst mistake

one of me is wiser
one of me is stronger
one of me’s a fighter
and there’s a thousand faces of me
and we’re gonna rise up
yeah we’re gonna rise up
for every time you wronged me
well you’re gonna face an army, army of me

so how does it feel
to know that i beat you
that i can defeat you
oh, how does it feel
’cause it sure feels sweeter
it sure feels sweeter to me

now that i’m wiser
now that i’m stronger
now that i’m a fighter
there’s a thousand faces of me

and i’m gonna rise up
yeah i’m gonna rise up
for every time you wronged me
there’s a thousand faces of me
yeah i’m gonna rise up
yeah i’m gonna rise up
for every time you wronged me
now you’re gonna face an army

i stand and believe in who i am

sing it out just for myself

blank page

i know there’s hurt, i know there’s pain,
but people change, lord knows i’ve been no saint
in my own way, regret choices i’ve made
how do i say i’m sorry? how do i say i’m sorry?

i was scared, i was unprepared
oh, for the things you said
if i could undo that i hurt you
i would do anything for us to make it through
draw me a smile and save me tonight
i am a blank page waiting for you to bring me to life
paint me a heart, let me be your art
i am a blank page waiting for life to start

let our hearts stop and beat as one together
let out hearts stop and beat as one forever

how can i erase decisions i’ve made?
how do i go back, what more can i say?
all that remains are hearts filled with shame
how do we say we’re sorry? how do we say we’re sorry

i was scared, i was unprepared
oh, for the things you said
if i could undo that i hurt you
i would do anything for us to make it through

paint me a heart, let me be your art
i am a blank page waiting for life to start

let our hearts stop and beat as one together
let out hearts stop and beat as one forever

i’d go back in time and i’ll realize
our spirits aligned and we’d never die

draw me a smile and save me tonight
i’ll be your blank page waiting for you to bring me to life
