"Right to Be Wrong" as written by Joss Stone, Betty Wright and Desmond Child....
I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown
I've got a mind of my own
I'm flesh and blood to the bone
I'm not made of stone
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down too long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe
I've got a right to be wrong
Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
Got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

You're entitled to your opinion
But it's really my decision
I can't turn back I'm on a mission
If you care don't you dare blur my vision
Let me be all that I can be
Don't smother me with negativity
Whatever's out there waiting for me
I'm going to faced it willingly

I've got a right to be wrong
My mistakes will make me strong
I'm stepping out into the great unknown
I'm feeling wings though I've never flown
I've got a mind of my own
Flesh and blood to the bone
See, I'm not made of stone
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

I've got a right to be wrong
I've been held down to long
I've got to break free
So I can finally breathe
I've got a right to be wrong
Got to sing my own song
I might be singing out of key
But it sure feels good to me
I've got a right to be wrong
So just leave me alone

    General CommentWhen I hear this song I feel like she wants to say, 'Hey, Stop judging me for everything I do, if I fuck things, it's my problem, I've got a right to be wrong' ...But everybody has a point of view!!

    General CommentI'm in a situation that this song could definately apply to...
    =\
    I think this song means one of two things:
    1.) I'm new here- I don't know the ropes yet, so I shouldn't be lynched for the mistakes I've made.
    2.) I'm new here, and these guys are all like "Like me, like me, like me... You are soooo WRONG for not liking me...", and that's where I come in and I'm like, "I've got a RIGHT to be wrong!"

    bah... just a thought.

    General Commentgood song...
    I think it means,that if shes been held down "trying" to do the right thing always..maybe to please everyone else,and everyone wants her to be one way,but shes saying she has a right to be wrong..a right to make her own decisions..a right to choose for her self..and if she makes mistakes by living her life and her own decisions...she has a right to be wrong!..way to go...

    General Commentto me this is all about growing up, wanting to make your own mistakes, wanting to be independent, to fulfill your own expectation rather than your parents', relatives'... i think it's great as a motto for anyone who has reached this point in his life

    General Commentto me this song is about someone trying to hold onto a relationship and the other person trying to walk away from it even if it turns out to be the wrong decision

    General CommentThis song is so powerful. Especially for women because a woman sings it and with such conviction too. I play this song from time to time to center me when everyone's opinions start to cloud me.

    General CommentAmen!!!! When steppin' out into the great unknown, mistakes will be known. This goes out to everyone, stand by me or leave me alone! As far as you, it's your own "closet cross" you gotta carry! You never deserved this family! Forever, leave me the f-in hell alone! BROKE FREE SO NOW I CAN FINALLY BREATHE!
