​You’ve gotta stay strong,

You’ve gotta fight your own battles,

You’ve gotta live up to your dreams.

People are gonna want to bring you down,

People are gonna tell you what to do,

People are gonna say you’re wrong.

Nobody has to understand you,

Nobody has to know what’s really going on,

Nobody has the right to ruin who you are.


When you get shaken

There’s always a day when you get shaken,

Call that very shaken – not a simple disturb.

It’s when someone just breaks into your soul,

And you are obliged to see what you never liked.

But when you look into your soul

And you find all that rubish standing out,

You might like to know that those can be treasures

Of the most valuable kind,

Hidden by the worst pirates,

More likely, ourselves.
