Track Name: Guerrera
Verse 1:
I grew up
With some fears and doubts
But they soon were
Gone, gone, gone, gone
Every time I’ve been pushed down
Or bossed around
I’ve gotten up, and moved
On, on, on, on

Pre-Chorus:
My mama told me
When I was young
Girls can be petty
And boys can be dumb

Chorus:
Yo soy guerrera
Soy mujer
Yo soy alguien que confía
En su ser
Yo soy poderosa
Soy un río
Y nadie puede quitarme
Lo que es mío
Yo soy guerrera

Verse 2:
My favorite word
Is no, because
I know I have to prove them
Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong
When I am told to
Give up, on something
You can bet I’ll stand
Strong, strong, strong, strong

Pre-Chorus 2:
My mama told me
When I was young
Girls can be petty
And boys can be dumb
But if you believe in yourself
Anything can be done

(Chorus) x3
Track Name: Stronger
Verse 1:
Life can sometimes be,
A little too much to bear
It’s hard to move along
When no one’s standing there
That day, I almost gave up
But then I heard you say,
Something innocent, something sweet
And I’m still here today.

Chorus:
Your eyes told me,
I no longer had to hide
As time went on,
I could finally confide, in someone
Who always had,
An open heart, and open mind
You always held me close,
When I needed to cry,
And after all you’ve done for me
Everything that we’ve been through

I just want to let you know,
I’m stronger now, because of you…

Verse 2:
All those memories,
Are like a movie set in time
To a perfect song
That doesn’t need to rhyme
All those conversations
Stories meant to last
Are just another reason
Our pain is fading fast.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
We are unbreakable
And I know your heart is made of gold
Friendship is more than just a smile
It’s a feeling, that brings you back to life…

(Chorus)

I’m stronger now,
I’m so much stronger now…because of you.
Track Name: Goddess
Verse 1:
I’ve grown up in a world
Where no is a question or a suggestion
And I’m not taken seriously
The world works in ways
I just don’t understand
Oh no, I don’t want you to hold my hand

Verse 2:
I’d like to walk down the street
Without fearing a man will look at me
Like I’m a fresh piece of meat
And if there ever comes a day
I gotta bare my teeth and bite, I will
But it shouldn’t be that way

Pre-Chorus 1:
You can try to silence me
Perhaps one day you’ll see

Chorus:
I am a goddess (x6)

Verse 3:
I don’t need a prince to save me
Screw the patriarchy
I’m a girl of warrior stone
Every step I take
Just gets me closer to the day
I can be proud of the woman I’ve become

Pre-Chorus 2:
You can go and steal my crown
But you will never bring me down

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Try to see the world through our tired eyes
And walk a lifetime in our worn out shoes
What will it take for you to realize
Why we keep on singing
Why we won’t stop singing

Chorus:
I am a goddess
I am a goddess

(Chorus)

Outro:
I’ve grown up in a world
Where no is a question or a suggestion
And I’m not taken seriously
Track Name: The Fight
Verse 1:
1, 2, 3
You couldn’t break me
I was nothing to you
But a liability

Verse 2:
1, 2, 3
You didn’t break me
Even when my life fell apart
And I was down on my knees

Chorus:
You didn’t take the fight out of me
You didn’t take the fight out of me
After all of this time
Oh, I do hope you find that
You didn’t take the fight out of me

Verse 3:
4, 5, 6
You did all this
Fed me twisted, tangled lies
But I broke out of your web, I’ve played dead enough times

Chorus:
You didn’t take the fight out of me
You didn’t take the fight out of me
You were in this to kill
Oh, say what you will ‘cause
You didn’t take the fight out of me

Verse 4:
7, 8, 9
You’ve run out of time
The bridge you burned set my world on fire
But lit my way as the ashes rose higher and higher and higher and higher

Chorus:
You didn’t take the fight out of me
You didn’t take the fight out of me
In the end you were wrong
And I grew strong, oh
You didn’t take the fight out of me
You didn’t take the fight out of me
You tried and you failed
My pride was never derailed, no
You didn’t take the fight
Out of me
You didn’t take the fight out of me.
