I let you push me past the breaking point
I guess that I forgot I had a choice

Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
  
 (7 - 11)
          You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the dust
Get ready 'cause I’ve had enough
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
         You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
I see it all, I see it now
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
 
C2. Complete:

I got the eye of the , a fighter, dancing through the
'Cause I am a and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a
'Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh - You’re gonna hear me roar
Now I’m floating like a
Stinging like a I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!) (...)
[Chorus]
