Do you like the way it feels when you get hurt?
Maybe you should take a long hard look at your self-worth
There's an emptiness inside
It started many years ago
You always try to fill it up
Its a familiar place you go
One day you'll just have to wake up, girl

[Chorus]

You know you got a lot to learn
Youve got to do it for yourself
Find your own direction, don't rely on someone else
You got to know it in your heart
Youve got to build it up with love, it isn't hard to rise above
Wake up, you don't wanna make up
Youve got to do it for yourself

I know it feels sometimes that loneliness is worse
And with every change there comes a melancholy search
Now you can walk away from this
It doesnt't have to bring you down
Have faith in destiny you what goes around, comes around
You don't have to stay and take it, girl

[Chorus]

Got nowhere to run
Got nowhere to hide
These changes will come if you just open your eyes
Got nowhere to run
Got nowhere to hide

You gotta do it for yourself
You gotta know it in your heart
It isn't hard to rise above
