You'll hear me sing one day.
You've put me down in the ground, deep underneath.
You've bullied me, teased me because notes could not come out of my voice,
And whenever I looked up to the greatest of musicians you told me I will never be one of those boys.
But you'll hear me roar one day, on the radio on vh1 or on of the viral YouTube videos,
And people will queue up for tickets to my shows.
Oh you'll goddamn hear me roar from stadium heights,
And in the words of Ed I'll not stop till my name is in lights.
I have a guitar, I have a pen and I have a voice that will be heard,
I'm not one of your realistic prisoner but rather an optimistic free bird.
Oh you'll hear me roar,
As the lights come on and a whole stadium will be chanting the lyrics I scribbled.
And I'll let a tear trickle down, and I'll come up to the mic,
And you'll hear me roar.
