Anastacia – Payed My Dues (Album Version)

[Intro]
You can say what you want about me
Try to do what you want to me
But you cannot stop me

[Verse 1]
I’ve been knocked down, it’s a crazy town
Even got punched in the face in L.A
Ain’t nothing in the world
That you keep me from doing what I wanna do
‘Cause I’m too proud, I’m too strong
Live by the code that you gotta move on
Feeling sorry for yourself ain’t got nobody nowhere so I…

[Pre-Chorus]
Held my head high
(I knew) knew I’d survive
(Well, I made it) I made it
(Don’t hate it) Don’t hate it
That’s just the way it goes

[Chorus]
I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues, yeah
Tried to hold me down
You can’t stop me now
I paid my dues

[Interlude]
So, like I told you
You cannot stop me
I paid my dues

[Verse 2]
Now I’m still tested every day
And people try to mess with Anastacia
Got another thing coming, ’cause I handle mine
And I thought I better let you know
I’m no punk I can get down
I don’t give a damn about who’s around
That;s worked just fine ’til now so I…

[Pre-Chorus]
Held my head high
(I knew) knew I’d survive
(Well, I made it) I made it
(Don’t hate it) Don’t hate it
That’s just the way it goes

[Chorus]
I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues
Tried to hold me down
You can’t stop me now
I paid my dues, yeah

[Bridge]
Took so long to get me here
But I won’t live in fear
Are you trying to steal my shine?
But first they want to build you up
Then they tear you down
It’s a struggle, you try to bubble so I…

[Pre-Chorus]
Held my head high
(I knew) knew I’d survive
(Well, I made it) I made it
(Don’t hate it) Don’t hate it
That’s just the way it goes

[Chorus]
I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues
Tried to hold me down
You can’t stop me now
I paid my dues, yeah
I done made it through
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues
Tried to hold me down
You can’t stop me now
I paid my dues, yeah
