Feel like I've been locked up
Nobody seen, let's go
Come on, come on
Baby, baby, baby
I grant you three wishes 'cause I be the genie
Christina Aguilera

It seems like a lifetime
Since I felt like a prisoner of my dreams, yeah, yeah
It took such a long time
For me to realize just how to be and to listen to me

Don't go thinking I'm not thankful
'Cause me, I've got my hands full of good things
And I hope I can give back
A little bit of what you've given me

So thank you for standing right by me, I will always love you
So thank you for being behind me, you are just so amazing
And watching me grow and letting others know
That you still believe in what I'll be

So people have said things in times
About me that weren't always true, ooh, yeah
But you've always been there
To give that extra love to pull me through, to do what I gotta do

'Cause there'll always be those ups and downs
But you've always seemed to stick around and see
See me through to believe, yeah

And I hope I can give back
A little bit of what you've given me
You given me all that I need, yeah

So thank you for standing right by me, I thank you for everything
So thank you for being behind me, thank you, Christina
And watching me grow and letting others know
That you still believe in what I'll be, sing it, girl

It took awhile 'til I could do what I wanted
And now I'm so happy that it started where we started
I'm thanking God that I could be in the position
To do my own thing now and make my own decisions

And so I'm thanking you for being true
And standing by me through and through
