Verse 1

When I'm caught up in a bad day,

And nothing seems to go my way,

When the world has sharpened its claws,

And my heart screams without a pause.

When I'm crumpled inside myself,

And nobody sends any help.

I close my eyes, let go of my pain,

And let music take care of me again.

Pre-chorus

It's gonna take way more than a guy

To bring my spirits down.

Won't stop moving cause you caught my eye,

Not worth wasting a frown.

Chorus

Baby I know how to walk alone,

I'm grooving to the beat

Flowing through my earphones.

Baby I dodged all your sticks and stones,

I'm standing on my feet

Cause I've got a backbone.

Verse 2

When everything seems so unfair,

And I'm longing for tender care.

When I can't find ways to fight you,

And my glasses seem painted blue.

When I'm broken and exhausted,

And your voice just won't leave my head.

I close my eyes, let go of my pain,

And trust music to always keep me sane.

Pre-chorus

It's gonna take way more than a guy

To bring my spirits down.

Won't stop moving cause you caught my eye,

Not worth wasting a frown.

Chorus

Baby I know how to walk alone,

I'm grooving to the beat

Flowing through my earphones.

Baby I dodged all your sticks and stones,

I'm standing on my feet

Cause I've got a backbone.

Bridge

I know I can't control what the others say,

I can't change the way people choose to think.

But I'm strong enough to keep the dogs at bay,

And I won't stand and let you watch me sink.

Pre-chorus

It's gonna take way more than a guy

To bring my spirits down.

Won't stop moving cause you caught my eye,

Not worth wasting a frown.

Chorus

Baby I know how to walk alone,

I'm grooving to the beat

Flowing through my earphones.

Baby I dodged all your sticks and stones,

I'm standing on my feet

Cause I've got a backbone.
