Pure Defiance

Because some days this is the only song that works, even if it’s corny…

She’s fed up with throwing in the towel
She is pulling herself bit by bit away from the cobwebs
Hasn’t slept all night and isn’t tired
Doesn’t need a mirror to know she’s looking good
Today she’s put mascara on her eyelashes
Today she likes her smile and isn’t estranged from herself
Today she dreams what she wants and refuses to worry
Today she’s a woman aware of her soul.

Today you will discover that the world is just for you
That no one can do you harm, no one can do you harm
Today you are going to understand
That fear can be broken by slamming a door
Today you’ll make others laugh
Because your eyes are tired of being of being lament, of being lament…
Today you will discover that the world is just for you
Today you’ll even find the way
To laugh even at yourself and see you made it
That, today, you will be the woman
You damn well know you can be

Today you are going to care for yourself
Like no has before
Today you will look forward
Cause looking back already hurt too much.
A brave woman, a smiling woman
Look how it unfolds
Today the perfect woman they were waiting for was born
She has broken without shame all the rules that made
Today she’s wearing her heels to make sure her steps are heard
Today she knows her life won’t be a failure

Today you will discover that the world is just for you
That no one can do you harm, no one can do you harm
Today you will conquer the sky
Without looking down to see how far it is from the ground
Today you will be happy
Even if the winter is cold, and long, and long.
Today you’ll find the way
To even laugh at yourself and see that you made it.
Today you will discover that the world is just for you
That no one can harm you, no one can harm you.
Today you will understand
That fear can be broken by slamming a door.
Today you will make other laugh
Because you are eyes have gotten tired of being lament, of being lament
Today you’ll find the way
To laugh even at yourself and see you made it.
