You can say what you want about me
Try to do what you want to me
But you cannot stop me

I've been knocked down, it's a crazy town
Even got punch in the face in L.A.
Ain't nothing in the world that can keep me
From doing what I wanna do

'Cause I'm too proud, I'm too strong
Live by the code that you gotta move on
Feelin' sad for yourself
Ain't got nobody nowhere

So I
(Held my head high)
I Knew I
(Knew I'd survive)
Well, I made it
(I made it)
I don't hate it
(Don't hate it)
That's just the way it goes, yeah

I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues, yeah
Tried to hold me down
You can't stop me now
I paid my dues

So like I told you
You cannot stop me
I paid my dues

Now I'm still tested every day
And people try to mess with Anastacia
Got another thing comin'
'Cause I handle mine
And I thought I better let you know

I'm no punk, I can't get down
I don't give a damn about who's around
That was just fine 'til now

So I
(Held my head high)
Knew I
(Knew I'd survive)
Well, I made it
(I made it)
Oaah
(Don't hate it)
That's just the way it goes, yeah

I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues, yeah, yeah
Tried to hold me down
You can't stop me now
I paid my dues, yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Took so long to get me here
But I won't live in fear
O' you tryin' to steal my shine
But first they wanna build you up
Then they tear you down
It's a struggle, you try to bubble

So I
(Held my head high)
Knew I
(Knew I'd survive)
Oaah
(I made it)
Oaah
(Don't hate it)
Said that's just the way

(I done made it through)
(Stand on my own two)
(I paid my dues)
Yeah

(Tried to hold me down)
But you can't stop me now
(I paid my dues)
Oaah

(I done made it through)
(Stand on my own two)
(I paid my dues)
Yeah

(Tried to hold me down)
But you can't stop me now
I paid my dues
