May 2014
The moon smiles down on me
Stars winking with a unique light
The wind dances with my hair
And I feel alive again

My voice rises on the wind
I let the laughter in, as I dance around
Feeling so unlike me, and in the sound
I feel like I can live here forever

The up and down roller-coaster
It's loving every second you have
It's terrifying, exhilarating, intoxicating
It's the thrilling ride of life

It's like living a dream
It's like the sun shines just for me
It's terrifying, exhilarating, intoxicating
It's the thrilling ride of life

It's been so long since I've felt like this
I've been beat when I'm down
I feel like I've been pushed around too long
And I finally stopped taking the crap

I stood up, I'll shout out
Nothing you say can keep me down
You're not welcome anymore
If all you do is tell me where I fall short

I was passive, I was meek
I used to take all the crap
I never let my hurt show
I'm taking charge to let you know

I'm not that girl anymore
I'm finally finding me
She's strong, and unafraid
And I'm not going back to who I used to be
Because I love me.

The up and down roller-coaster
It's loving every second you have
It's terrifying, exhilarating, intoxicating
It's the thrilling ride of life

It's like living a dream
It's like the sun shines just for me
It's terrifying, exhilarating, intoxicating
It's the thrilling ride of life

And now that I've finally found me
I hope that you can hold on to her
Because if you can't she'll be gone
And after all this I hope you see

I'm me, and I love it
It's time that I show it
I love, and I know it
It's everything I ever want to be

And if you don't like me
Then go find someone new
This girl sure don't need you
I hope that's something you see

The up and down roller-coaster
It's loving every second you have
It's terrifying, exhilarating, intoxicating
It's the thrilling ride of life

It's like living a dream
It's like the sun shines just for me
It's terrifying, exhilarating, intoxicating
It's the thrilling ride of life

And the ride will move on
With or with you there
Because I'm me
