Self Worth Song Lyrics

Here are just a few of the powerful Lyrics from some of the Self-Love Anthems listed in the playlist.

Scream these words out loud, and sing yourself a love song.

I’ve been so down and under pressure

I’m way too fine to be this stressed, yeah

I’m not the girl I was or used to be

Bitch, I might be better

About Damn Time Lizzo
So what? Still got knives in my back

So what? So I'm tied to the tracks, yeah

I'm gonna dance on broken glass

And here I go, here I go

So what? Still got knives in my back

So what? So I’m tied to the tracks, yeah

I’m gonna dance on broken glass

And here I go, here I go

Broken Glass Rachel Plattern

I am beautiful no matter what they say

Words can’t bring me down

I am beautiful in every single way

Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no

So don’t you bring me down today

Beautiful Christina Aguilera

I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all

Is happening to me

I found the greatest love of all

Inside of me

The greatest love of all

Is easy to achieve

Learning to love yourself

It is the greatest love of all

Greatest Love of All Whitney Houston
Hey, if you were a friend, you want to get know me again

If you were worth a while

You'd be happy to see me smile

I'm not expecting sorry

I'm too busy finding myself

I got this

I found me, I found me, yeah

Hey, if you were a friend, you want to get know me again

If you were worth a while

You’d be happy to see me smile

I’m not expecting sorry

I’m too busy finding myself

I got this

I found me, I found me, yeah

Brand New Me Alicia Keys
I am invincible, unbreakable

Unstoppable, unshakeable

They knock me down, I get up again

I am invincible, unbreakable

Unstoppable, unshakeable

They knock me down, I get up again

The Champion Carrie Underwood
