Brand New Me

Album: Girl On Fire (2012)
  • It's been a while, I'm not who I was before
    You look surprised, your words don't burn me anymore
    Been meaning to tell you, but I guess it's clear to see
    Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of me
    Can't be bad, I found a brand new kind of free

    Careful with your ego, he's the one that we should blame
    Had to grab my heart back
    God know something had to change
    I thought that you'd be happy
    I found the one thing I need, why you mad
    It's just the brand new kind of me

    It took a long long time to get here
    It took a brave, brave girl to try
    It took one too many excuses, one too many lies
    Don't be surprised, don't be surprised

    if i talk a little louder
    If I speak up when you're wrong
    If I walk a little taller
    I'd be known to you too long
    If you noticed that I'm different
    Don't take it personally
    Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of me
    And it ain't bad, I found a brand new kind of free

    Oh, it took a long long road to get here
    It took a brave brave girl to try
    I've taken one too many excuses, one too many lies
    Don't be surprised, oh see you look surprised

    Hey, if you were a friend, you want to get know me again
    If you were worth a while
    You'd be happy to see me smile
    I'm not expecting sorry
    I'm too busy finding myself
    I got this
    I found me, I found me, yeah

    I don't need your opinion
    I'm not waiting for your okay
    I'll never be perfect, but at least now I'm brave
    Now, my heart is open
    And I can finally breathe
    Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of free
    That ain't bad, I found a brand new kind of me
    Don't be mad, it's just a brand new time for me Writer/s: NEAL BRIAN CONWAY, CRYSTAL WATERS, ALICIA KEYS, EMELI SANDE
