  • La-la-la-la-la la
    La la la la-la la la la

    La-la-la-la-la la
    La la la la-la la la la

    Everyday I fight for all my future somethings
    A thousand little wars I have to choose between
    I could spend a lifetime earning things I don't need
    That's like chasing rainbows and coming home empty

    And if you strip me, strip it all away
    If you strip me, what would you find
    If you strip me, strip it all away
    I'll be alright

    Take what you want steal my pride
    Build me up or cut me down to size
    Shut me out but I'll just scream
    I'm only one voice in a million
    But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that!

    I don't need a microphone yeah
    To say what I've been thinking
    My heart is like a loudspeaker
    That's always on eleven

    And if you strip me, strip it all away
    If you strip me, what would you find
    If you strip me, strip it all away
    I'm still the same

    Take what you want steal my pride
    Build me up or cut me down to size
    Shut me out but I'll just scream
    I'm only one voice in a million
    But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that!

    Cause when it all boils down at the end of the day
    It's what you do and say that makes you who you are
    Makes you think about, think about it doesn't it
    Sometimes all it takes is one voice

    Take what you want steal my pride
    Build me up or cut me down to size
    Shut me out but I'll just scream
    I'm only one voice in a million
    But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that!

    Take what you want steal my pride
    Build me up or cut me down to size
    Shut me out but I'll just scream
    I'm only one voice in a million
    But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
    You ain't taking that! Writer/s: NATASHA BEDINGFIELD, RYAN TEDDER, WAYNE WILKINS
