January 12, 2011 – Song 69

Ohhh shit. This is the first song in the Trifecta of Strength. I have to save the rest of it in a “break glass in case of emergency” kind of way because I have like almost three hundred days to go. Anything could happen man!

Props to Christian for remembering it was somebody’s birthday. Song 69.

What’s nice about this is I don’t even have to do anything…Mary J already wrote the damn song. Well, anything that is except fashion up a “Footprints in Sand” type plaque for myself with these goddamned lyrics on it.

Work your thing out
The…re’s so many girls
I hear you been running
From the beautiful queen
That you could be becoming
You can look at my palm
And see the storm coming
Read the book of my life
And see I’ve overcome it

Just because the length of your hair ain’t long
And they often criticize you for your skin tone
Wanna hold your head high
Cause you’re a pretty woman
Get your runway stride on
And keep going
Girl live ya life

I just wanna be myself
Don’t sweat girl be yourself
Follow me
Follow me
Follow me
Girl be yourself
That’s why I be myself
And I’m gonna love it

Let em get mad
They gonna hate anyway
Don’t you get that?
Doesn’t matter if you’re going on with their plan
They’ll never be happy
Cause they’re not happy with themselves

Na na work what you got
I’m talking bout things that I know
Na na work what you got
It’s ok show yourself some love
Na na work what you got
Don’t worry bout who’s saying what
It’s gonna be fine
Work what you got

Feeling great because the light’s on me
Celebrating the things that everyone told me
Would never happen
But God has put his hands on me
And ain’t a man alive could ever take it from me

Working with what I got I gotta keep on
Taking care of myself I wanna live long
Ain’t never ashamed what life did to me
Wasn’t afraid to change cause it was good for me
I wanna…I just wanna be myself

“Sometimes I like to feel empowered too.”
-Christian Brandt upon putting on No Doubt’s Greatest Hits.

“A lioness inside me just woke up”
-Jessica Skolnik in reference to I don’t even know what!
