Roar by Katy Perry

When I’m really struggling, really need to feel empowered. This is what I listen to, and these are the words I sing. Roar by Katy Perry (autistic community version) I bit my tongue and held my breath Scared to rock the boat and make a mess So I sat quietly, I agreed politely I guess that I forgot I had a choice Pushed past the breaking point I stood my ground, fell every time Life held me down, but I got up (hey) Already brushing off the dust You hear my voice, you hear that sound Like thunder, gonna shake the ground Life held me down, but I got up (hey) Get ready ‘cause I’ve had enough I see it all, I see it now We’ve got the eye of the tiger, we are fighters Going to lift us higher ‘Cause we are autistic, and you’re gonna hear us roar Louder, louder than a lion ‘Cause I am autistic, and you’re gonna hear me roar Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh You’re gonna hear me roar Now I’m floatin’ like a butterfly Stinging like a bee, I earned my stripes You were never a zero, but my own heroes Life held me down, but I got up (hey) Already brushing off the dust You hear my voice, you hear that sound Like thunder, gonna shake the ground Life held me down, but I got up (hey) Get ready ‘cause I’ve had enough I see it all, I see it now We’ve got the eye of the tiger, we are fighters Going to lift us higher ‘Cause we are autistic and you’re gonna hear us roar Louder, louder than a lion ‘Cause I am autistic and you’re gonna hear me roar Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh You’re gonna hear me roar Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (you’ll hear me roar) Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh You’re gonna hear me roar Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar Because we’ve got the eye of the tiger, we are fighters Going to lift us higher ‘Cause we are autistic, and you’re gonna hear us roar Louder, louder than a lion ‘Cause I am autistic, and you’re gonna hear me roar Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (yeah) Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh you’re gonna hear us roar Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (you’ll hear me roar) Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh You’re gonna hear me roar Please feel free to share any of my posts and please like or follow to be notified of future posts.
