I am from the tiny town
Where I learned how to tough it out
Where I kicked the dirt an' my dreams around
To conquer the whole world

My uncle slipped me fifty bucks
Some rolled their eyes an' wished me luck
Yeah, I spent the first night in the cab of my truck
An' I am still that girl

I like a challenge an' I like to fly
I'm not always perfect, I'm not always right
When I go to weddings, it always makes me cry

My heart is fragile an' I can be hurt
An' I can crumble inside at the drop of a word
But I can jump off a limb into a river of change
I'm taking back my brave

I kinda lost it for a while
I had to force myself to smile
An' I quit going that extra mile
Abandoned my belief

An' I spent hours on the phone
Crawlin' back to my comfort zone
Then I woke up one day, said, "I'm not runnin' home
It's just not like me"

'Cause I like a challenge an' I like to fly
I'm not always perfect, I'm not always right
New born babies always make me cry

My heart is fragile an' I can be hurt
An' I can crumble inside at the drop of a word
But I can jump off a limb into a river of change
I'm taking back my brave

I'm my momma's only girl
The child in a mess
(I've always been that way)
I've been pushin' the limits
Since I was little, yeah, yeah

Oh, my heart is fragile an' I can be hurt
An' I can crumble inside at the drop of a word
But I can jump off a limb into a river of change
I'm taking back my brave

I'm taking back my brave, yeah
Takin' it back, back
I'm takin' it back, back
I'm taking back my brave, yeah
Takin' it back, back
