Song Lyric Sunday – Alice by Avril Lavigne

The very first song I thought of when I posted the theme was “Magic” sung by Selena Gomez in the Disney TV show Wizards of Waverly Place.  Believe it or not, it was one of my favorite shows to watch with the kiddos and I think I ended up liking it more than they did.  However, I listened to it and read the lyrics and it just wasn’t something I wanted to use as my pick.  I usually tend to post songs with lyrics that have deeper meanings.

While I was listening to it, though, I saw this song on the “up next” feed.  I remembered hearing this song when I saw the movie Alice in Wonderland and I remembered falling in love with it.  I didn’t necessarily take the time to try and find it, though, so it was a nice surprise today when I clicked on it and listened to it.

It’s a little sideways to the theme, but what is more magical than Alice in Wonderland?  I know that’s not really what the song is about though.  It’s more about Alice standing up and finding her way home rather than giving in to fear.  There’s some great empowerment themes in the song and it’s something I really needed to hear today.

I do hope you enjoy!

Written by Avril Lavigne

Trippin’ out
Spinnin’ around
I’m underground, I fell down
Yeah, I fell down

I’m freakin’ out
So where am I now?
Upside down
And I can’t stop it now
It can’t stop me now,
Ohhh

I, I’ll get by
I, I’ll survive
When the world’s crashin’ down
When I fall and hit the ground
I will turn myself around
Don’t you try to stop it!
I, I won’t cry

I found myself (myself) in Wonderland
Get back on my feet again
Is this real? (Is this real?)
Is it pretend? (Is it pretend?)
I’ll take (I’ll take) a stand (A stand) until (Until) the end

I, I’ll get by
I, I’ll survive
When the world’s crashin’ down
When I fall and hit the ground
I’ll just turn myself around
Don’t you try to stop me!
I, I won’t cry

I, I’ll get by
I, I’ll survive
When the world’s crashin’ down
When I fall and hit the ground
I will turn myself around
Don’t you try to stop me!
I, and I won’t cry
