As Your Own Song Plays
(Song For Gloria Gaynor)

"As Your Own Song Plays (Song For Gloria Gaynor)" —Emily, 16

 

I didn't even know that I had it in me

I didn't even know it was there

But in the hard times, I find the strength everywhere

 

I didn't even know that I had it in me

I didn't even know it was there

But in the hard times, I find the strength everywhere

 

In the smile of a child

In the beauty of the moon

I can let myself go

In the rhythm of a tune

In the words of a prayer

In the song of the waves

I can let myself go

As my own song plays

 

If you have hard times and you're scared

If you feel lost in despair

I know you can find your own strength everywhere

 

If you have hard times and you're scared

If you feel lost in despair

I know you can find your own strength everywhere

 

In the smile of a child

In the beauty of the moon

You can let yourself go

In the rhythm of a tune

In the words of a prayer

In the song of the waves

You can let yourself go

As your own song plays

 

I will survive, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give, and I will survive, I will survive

 

In the smile of a child

In the beauty of the moon

We let ourselves go

With the rhythm of a tune

In the words of a prayer

In the song of the waves

We let ourselves go

As our own song plays
