"emancipate" as written by Kelis Rogers, Marco Benassi and Jean Baptiste Kouame....
Let me tell you what love is
It's when you meet each other halfway
I'm en route

[Chorus]
Emancipate yourself
Emancipate yourself
Emancipate yourself
Emancipate yourself

Look in your own mirror and know who you are
Live your life accordingly the truth is on your arm
And it's good, baby
You've done good, baby

Be just who you are make no apologies
And when it's said and done who's really sorry
You're ok, baby
It's ok, baby

[Chorus]

Dare to be a better you each chance you get
We're all human and fall short and nothing's over yet
It's up to you, baby
Give 'em you, baby

Life's too short to waste your time do what you love
Don't be ashamed it's better have peace by a dove
Give 'em you, baby
Give 'em room, baby

[Chorus]

Like the phoenix from the ashes
Or a sunrise off in the distance
I'll try again, I'll try again
I'll try again, we'll try again

Like the phoenix from the ashes
Or a sunrise off in the distance
I'll try again, I'll try again
I'll try again, we'll try again

[Chorus]

    General Commentthe first bit of this song is so annoying - she does not need to say it 16 times in a row. but then as soon as the bit about the phoenix starts, amazing.
