"Cruz" as written by Christina Aguilera and Linda Perry....
I'm leaving today
Living it
Leaving it
To change

Slowly drifting
Into a peaceful breeze
Tongue tied and twisted
Are all my memories
Celebrating a fantasy come true
Packing all my bags
Finally on the move

I'm leaving today
I'm living it
Oh I'm leaving it
To change

As I'm driving
I'm captured by the view
So much beauty
The road becomes my muse
The heat is rising
And my hand surfs through the wind
Cool, calm, collected
Is the child that lies within

See I'm leaving today
I'm living it
Oh I'm leaving it
To change, oh yeah

See I'm leaving today, oh yes I'm
Living it
Oh I'm leaving it
To change

But somehow I miss it
I think I'll really miss it
One day, oh

I turn up the radio
And I'm feeling like I've never felt before
Turn down the memories of
Yester-years and broken dreams I bring
Finally free, ooh

Slowly drifting
Into a peaceful breeze, oh
Oh

Ooh yeah
I'm leaving today, oh yes I'm
Living it, oh yeah
Leaving it to change
To change, oh no

See I'm leaving today, oh yes I'm
Living it, living it
Leaving it, leaving
To change
Oh oh

I'm leaving today
Oh I'm living it
I'm leaving it to change
Living it, to change
Leaving it
To change
Ooh, oh yeah

Living it, leaving it
Said I'm living it
I'm leaving it
Living it, leaving it
To change
I'm leaving it to change

But somehow I miss it
I think I'll really miss it
One day, yeah

    General CommentThe lyrics to this song are amazing and inspiring. I don`t want to state the obvious, but this song is about someone leaving their past behind and doing something new for themselves. Finally achieving freedom from something that was holding them back . . .

    General CommentYes, it is so inspiring and liberating. Along with Soar, the most emotional part of Stripped (which is quite deep in fact). It's about letting go...something that tied you back and that you will surely miss, a part of you. But it is necessary, for you need to move on.
    Her voice is so strong and yet touching and it shows her emotion, and listening to it live...it moves you even more. I appreciate so much her work.

    General CommentI agree. I think it's about her leaving her past. Maybe like she just turned 18, and finally came out of her rough childhood, and now she's leaving it all behind. That's my view of the song, especially since her childhood was VERY rough.

    General CommentTo me, this song is all about leaving your home town, moving away from friends, family and everything you've ever known and loved. And despite being excited about what lies ahead, there are some mixed apprehnsions in there too. I've been there!

    General CommentThis is another one of my theme songs :).

    For the first time in my life, I moved away to go to school so I can totally relate to "Cruz"

    I'm leaving it to change....
