Ooooh
La la la
La la la
Mmmm
Hey yea
No no
Mmm
Oh no
Hmmm

Oooh I'm so happy that I'm 
Livin' my life
I never knew what I went through 
But hoped everything'd turn out right 
I'm rememberin' the days that I was holdin' my head down
When people came around I always pretended to smile 
But I knew
Deep in my heart 
That I was slowly  Fallin apart
Some days
All I wanted 
Was to hold my mother's hand
And hear her say
"Baby...
You're gonna make it"
Over and over again 
So I

And I been livin' my life for quite some time
(Livin' my life)
And I'm
So glad I made it this far
(oh)
And
Nothin' honna bring me back down
And
Nothin' gonna turn me around 
(turn me around)

And I been livin' my life for quite some time
And I'm
So glad I made it this far
(so glad)
And
Nothin' gonna bring me back down
And
Nothin' gonna turn me around 

Don't want nobody to think 
It was easy for me
It took a while just to get down
Too many people just didn't believe 
I'm remembering the sacrifices that I had to make
I would cry myself to sleep and say that it would be ok
But I knew
That if I prayed 
That I would be on my way someday 
Some times 
All I wanted 
Was to hear my father say
He would say
"Baby...
You're gonna make it
And I don't care what people say"
So I'm

And I been livin' my life for quite some time
And I'm
So glad I made it this far
And
Nothin' gonna bring me back down
(Bring me back down)
And
Nothin' gonna turn me around 
(Turn me around)

And I been livin' my life for quite some time
And I'm
So glad I made it this far
And
Nothin' gonna bring me back down
(Bring me back down)
And
Nothin' gonna turn me around 
(Turn me around 

Oh I want the world to see
 Everything that's happened to me
I went from goin' out my mind
To always on time
And I am no longer a fool
 Since my days are cold without you
And I'm so
(I'm so)
 Happy 
(Happy)
Baby baby babe
Said I'm so
(I'm so)
 Happy 
(Happy)
Baby baby babe

And I been livin' my life for quite some time
And I'm
So glad I made it this far
(So glad)
And
Nothin' gonna bring me back down
(Nothing)
And
Nothin' gonna turn me around 
(And oooooooh)

And I been livin' my life for quite some time
And I'm so glad I made it this far
(Yeah yeah)
And
Nothin' gonna bring me back down
(Bring me back down)
And
Nothin' gonna turn me around 
(Turn me around)
