  • Hear Me Roar - Exiark feat. Megaphoric

    3,620 views 2 years ago
    It's been quite awhile since I've written any original music, but I made an exception for my friend, Exiark for his new album. He is ridiculously talented and it was such a treat to see what awesome things he could do with my voice. Be sure to buy his album and subscribe to his channel!

    The lyrics I wrote were very much influenced by Helen Reddy's "I am woman", as a song of female empowerment and an ode to the discouragement some girls (and feminine men) feel growing up with others telling them who to be. Of course, I do hope any male or non-binary listeners feel equally empowered while listening

    LYRICS
    Nothing's quite as easy as it seems
    Not like the beginning
    Feels like every day I wanna scream
    In this game there's no winning

    Can someone tell me just what happened
    To my perfect story
    Thought I had this under wraps and
    Knew what's waiting for me

    You can't throw me away
    You'll find nothing better
    You can't force me to stay
    Donning your red letter
    You can't take it away
    What I've worked so hard for
    At the end of the day
    You will hear me roar
    (x2)

    Can someone tell me just what happened
    Thought I had this under wraps and
    Knew what's waiting for me
    Something with more glory
    Knew what's waiting for me
    Somewhere skies aren't stormy
    People to adore me

    You can't throw me away
    You'll find nothing better
    You can't force me to stay
    Donning your red letter
    You can't take it away
    What I've worked so hard for
    At the end of the day
    You will hear me roar

    The knife held in your hands no longer stings
    You think you'll hold me back with just these chains
    It's cute you think that you can stop my reign
    There's nothing that I have you can contain
    So go ahead and try, I will maintain
    The power that I have and will gain

    You can't throw me away
    You'll find nothing better
    You can't force me to stay
    Donning your red letter
    You can't take it away
    What I've worked so hard for
    At the end of the day
    You will hear me roar Show less
