Let me tell you what love is 
It's when you meet each other halfway 
I'm en route 

[Chorus] 
Emancipate yourself 
Emancipate yourself 
Emancipate yourself 
Emancipate yourself

Look in your own mirror and know who you are 
Live your life accordingly the truth is on your arm 
And it's good, baby 
You've done good, baby 

Be just who you are make no apologies 
And when it's said and done who's really sorry 
You're ok, baby 
It's ok, baby 

[Chorus] 

Dare to be a better you each chance you get 
We're all human and fall short and nothing's over yet 
It's up to you, baby 
Give 'em you, baby 

Life's too short to waste your time do what you love 
Don't be ashamed it's better have peace by a dove 
Give 'em you, baby 
Give 'em room, baby 

[Chorus] 

Like the phoenix from the ashes 
Or a sunrise off in the distance 
I'll try again, I'll try again 
I'll try again, we'll try again 

Like the phoenix from the ashes 
Or a sunrise off in the distance 
I'll try again, I'll try again 
I'll try again, we'll try again 

[Chorus]
