Oooohhhh
This is me
This is who I am..

I'm still tryna make it out
Cause I'm still just another girl from the ghetto
There's so much in my life
I break down cause I'm so deep in the struggle
(There isn't sun in rain. there ain't joy in pain.)
Thought I found my way out then I'm back again
From the streets to the stage of Hollywood
Back to the blessings
And the love in the hood

[Chorus]

I'm just a girl tryna make a way (ohhhohhh)
It gets so hard but I'll be ok (be ok)
I don't really care what the people say
Cause this is me
A mother, a daughter (daughter), a sis to my brother (sis to my brother)
I'm every woman cause I gotta be
And god put me through it
Cause he know I can do it
Cause this is me yeah


Southern girl with city dreams
Got a sack full of clothes and just a few ol' dollars
Bustin' tables while I'm tryna sing
Hope I hit it big so I can send for my daughter
(there isn't sun in rain. there ain't joy in pain.)
Thought I found my way out then I'm back again
From the streets to the stage of Hollywood
Back to the blessings
And the love in the hood

[Chorus]

I'm just a girl tryna make a way (make a way)
It gets so hard but I'll be ok (ohhhohhh)
I don't really can what the people say (oh yeah)
Cause this is me (this is me yeah)
A mother (mother), a daughter, a sis to my brother (sis to my brother)
I'm every woman cause I gotta be (oh yeah)
And god put me through it
Cause he know I can do it
Cause this is me yeah
[breakdown]
No one really knows the whole truth
(The whole truth about me)
And no one's had to live in my life
(Then they would know it ain't easy)
Made my share of mistakes
That's alright
Cause I'm not gone be afraid no more
Cause this is me
And I won't hide who I am

[Chorus]

I'm just a girl tryna make a way (ohhh oh yeah!)
It gets so hard but I'll be ok
I don't really care what the people say (what the people really say!) (oh yeah!)
Cause this is me
A mother, a daughter, a sis to my brother (sis to my brother)
I'm every woman cause I gotta be (hey!)
And god put me through it
Cause he know I can do it
Cause this is me yeah
