All her life all she's seen
Are the meanest, hurtful things.
That took away her faith of dreams and beautiful things.
She told herself that it would always be like this. That dreams were only for the lucky and the strong.
Now she's older and her wounds have made her stronger than you know.
Where once pain lived,
A heart of steel began to grow.
All her life she was told
She'd be nothing when she grew older.
That's what her fear told her.
All she felt of life were the kicks and all the blows,
But she vowed that someday, the world would know her name,
And in time all the bruises life gave her wouldn't feel the same.
When you've been fighting for your dreams all your life,
When you've been struggling day and night, to make things right,
When fear turns into fire and tears turn into will,
That's what turns a sad, little girl you once knew into a superhero.
And her fear will now drive her,
Instead of keeping her still.
Making wings out of pain,
Where she will someday fly high, again.
