about

Phoenix is a song written about letting go of your past in order to move forward. As a victim of domestic abuse, I felt this song was very powerful for me to be able to let go of my past in order to get on with living my life again no longer feeling a victim. Thanks for listening to my song, and I hope you found it as moving as I did while making it.

lyrics

Yeah
You can’t keep me down
And how you tried
I can’t die
I stay on my grind
I’m not invincible
but how I try

To make my name known every day
I’m rising from the ashes
You burned down around me
I arise
I arrive unscathed
Untouched, unphased
In incredible ways

What, you thought you could just shove me aside
Torture my heart?
Inside my mind
I’ve got a better plan
I’ve got something left to prove
Just stick around
I’ve got something for you

Watch me rise
Shaking off the ashes
With wings of fire
I fly
Watch me arise
You thought you’d shut me down for life
You thought you’d burn me down inside
I don’t think so
I’m coming back to life

Coming back with a vengeance
Burning you for your decision
Pushing through the sky as I fly
I arise so full of life
Leaving a trail of fire in the sky

Here we are again
Among the ashes once more
I arise again
Beaten, broken and sore
It seems it never ends
The feelings of abuse
Let’s tell my side of the story too

About how you used me
About how you abused me
What you thought you could just get away with this
I don’t think so
There’s a life line I missed
I grab for it
And just in case I missed

I pull it out of you
I think I’m ready to prove
That this is not my fault
I’m not someone you can use
You can’t use me as an excuse
For the reasons you choose to abuse
I won’t be a victim to your lies
And every bit of your hateful demise
This is just another way for me to arise
Watch the fire reign down from the sky as I fly

What, you thought you could just shove me aside
Torture my heart?
Inside my mind
I’ve got a better plan
I’ve got something left to prove
Just stick around
I’ve got something for you

Watch me rise
Shaking off the ashes
With wings of fire
I fly
Watch me arise
You thought you’d burn me down inside
You thought you’d shut me down for life
I don’t think so
I’m coming back to life

Coming back with a vengeance
Burning you for your decision
Pushing through the sky as I fly
I arise so full of life
Leaving a trail of fire in the sky
