  • The world spit me out and I was spinning around
    Lost in a free fall
    Forever going down, and breakin' through the ground
    When I thought I reached the end, I start to fall again

    But I was taught
    To never surrender
    When it's hard to get up
    Gonna fight till I can stand and say

    Oh, you can turn me down, you can throw me now
    The harder out, the harder I come back around
    You can break my heart but you can't scratch my name
    I can take the hit 'cause I'm a boomerang
    Oh, whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa I'm a boomerang
    Oh, whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa I'm a boomerang

    Now I'm 10 feet tall, all my problems feel so small
    Nothing in my way to make me change
    No ceiling to my sky, just open space to fly
    Every time I'm feeling down, I turn it back around

    But I was taught
    To never surrender
    When it's hard to get up
    Gonna fight till I can stand and say

    Oh, you can turn me down, you can throw me now
    The harder out, the harder I come back around
    You can break my heart but you can't scratch my name
    I can take the hit 'cause I'm a boomerang
    Oh, whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa I'm a boomerang
    Oh, whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa I'm a boomerang

    Even though I'm flying high
    The sky can change one day
    I can hit some turbulence, but who I am is never gonna change
    'Cause I'm a boomerang
    'Cause I'm a boomerang
    'Cause I'm a boomerang

    Oh, you can turn me down, you can throw me now
    The harder out, the harder I come back around
    You can break my heart but you can't scratch my name
    I can take the hit 'cause I'm a boomerang
    Oh, whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa I'm a boomerang
    Oh, whoa, oh whoa, oh whoa I'm a boomerang (boomerang) Writer/s: Anthony Preston, Azengo, Daniel Murcia, Jackson Morgan, Sandy Julien Wilhelm
