Paid My Dues

Written by Anastacia Newkirk, Greg Lawson, Damon Sharpe, LaMenga Kafi

You can say what you want about me
Try to do what you want to me
But you can not stop me

I've been knocked down, it's a crazy town
Even got a punch in the face in L.A.
Ain't nothing in the world that could keep me from doing what I wanna do
'Cause I'm too proud, I'm too strong
I live by the code that you gotta move on
Feeling sorry for yourself ain't got nobody nowhere

So I (held my head high)
I knew I (knew I'd survive)
Well I made it (I made it)
I don't hate it (I don't hate it)
That's just the way it goes
So I done made it through, stand on my own two
I paid my dues
Yeah, you tried to hold me down
You can't stop me now
I paid my dues

So, like I told you, you can not stop me
I paid my dues, yes

Now I'm still tested every day
People try to mess with Anastacia
Got another think comin'
'Cause I have a mind
And I thought I better let you know
I'm no punk, I can get down
I don't give a damn 'bout who's around
That's worked just fine 'till now

So I (held my head high)
Knew I (knew I'd survive)
Well I made it (I made it)
Who, oh (I don't hate it)
That's just the way it goes, yeah
Ooh ooh (So I'm done, made it through)
Stand on my own two
I paid my dues
Yeah yeah, you tried to hold me down
You can't stop me now
I paid my dues

Took so long to get me here
But I won't live in fear
Of you tryin' to steal my shine
But first they wanna build you up
Then they tear you down
It's a struggle, tryin' to bubble

So I (held my head high)
Knew I (Knew I survive)
Oh (I made it, don't hate it)
Said that's just the way
I said I paid my, I paid my dues
Yeah
But you can't stop me now (you can't stop me now)
I paid my, paid my dues...
