Someday by the Black Eyed Peas

Standout lyrics from this song:
“Someday you’re wonderin, if you’re really gonna make it (aw yeah)
And sometimes you wanna know, is there anyone to save you (aw yeah)
I know you’ve been down before, like underneath the ground (under the ground)
Still got another chance, to turn it all around (turn it around)
Just know your time will come, go give it all you got (give it all you got)
Don’t stop believin, so give it all you got

I Didn’t Know My Own Strength by Whitney Houston

Standout lyrics from this song:
“I didn’t know my own strength

And I crashed down and I tumbled but I did not crumble

Survived my darkest hour, my faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up, hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength”

Freedom Strength by Beyoncé

Standout lyrics from this song (and I LIVE for these two lines):
“Hey! I’ma keep running
Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves”
