Guerrera 04:34
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

Stronger 04:23
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.

Goddess 03:34
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

The Fight 02:27
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.
