Hey sister
I never knew which way to go
Everybody had an answer, so I said
Go lecture someone, go lecture someone

I could feel it in my heart babe
I couldn't scream, I couldn't shout
I had to find out in my own way
Ran into someone, ran into someone

I'll be the woman, I am
Now I don't have to hide all that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am
Just had to let it show, had nowhere else to go

I had to learn to trust myself
I had to learn just when to say no
Always trying to please someone else
I had to let go, I had to let go

The world is filled of many wonders
I had to look to Heaven for my own
I saw the star that I was under
Lord, lead me back home, lead me back home

I'll be the woman, I am
Now I don't have to hide all that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am
Just had to let it show, had nowhere else to go

I can look at myself and I'm not afraid
I have finally learned how to love
I can feel everything that I've never felt
And I'm sure now that I've always known

I'll be the woman, I am
Now I don't have to hide, I can let it show all that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am
Now I can let it show, had nowhere else to go
[Incomprehensible]

I'll be the woman, I am
Now I don't have to hide all that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am
Just had to let it show, had nowhere else to go

I'll be the woman, I am
Now I don't have to hide all that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am
Finally feeling free, finally feeling free

I'll be the woman, I am
Now I don't have to hide all that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am
I just had to let it show, had nowhere else to go

I'll be the woman, I am
All that I feel inside
I'll be the woman, I am, hear me sing
Just had to let it show, nowhere else to go
I'll be the woman, I am
