"Strip Me" as written by Wayne Wilkins, Natasha Bedingfield and Ryan Tedder....
La-la-la-la-la la
La la la la-la la la la

La-la-la-la-la la
La la la la-la la la la

Everyday I fight for all my future somethings
A thousand little wars I have to choose between
I could spend a lifetime earning things I don't need
That's like chasing rainbows and coming home empty

And if you strip me, strip it all away
If you strip me, what would you find
If you strip me, strip it all away
I'll be alright

Take what you want steal my pride
Build me up or cut me down to size
Shut me out but I'll just scream
I'm only one voice in a million
But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that!

I don't need a microphone yeah
To say what I've been thinking
My heart is like a loudspeaker
That's always on eleven

And if you strip me, strip it all away
If you strip me, what would you find
If you strip me, strip it all away
I'm still the same

Take what you want steal my pride
Build me up or cut me down to size
Shut me out but I'll just scream
I'm only one voice in a million
But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that!

Cause when it all boils down at the end of the day
It's what you do and say that makes you who you are
Makes you think about, think about it doesn't it
Sometimes all it takes is one voice

Take what you want steal my pride
Build me up or cut me down to size
Shut me out but I'll just scream
I'm only one voice in a million
But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that!

Take what you want steal my pride
Build me up or cut me down to size
Shut me out but I'll just scream
I'm only one voice in a million
But you ain't taking that from me (oh ooh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that from me (oh oh)
You ain't taking that!

    General CommentThis song is all about maintaining your individuality. You can't let people force you into their mold. Its a constant battle, you need to strip off everything about you that makes you fake. Your inner self is what makes you unique, bit the personalities that people get us to wear just corrupts us.

    General CommentI love this song-- This seems to relate to my life and a lot of other people I know. I feel like life can get so difficult and crazy, but it is so important to remember who you are through everything. Always be yourself, no matter what is you are dealing with, where you are, or who are with. Do not be afraid to express how you truly feel sometimes.

    "Take what you want, steal my pride"
    Even if you think you might lose some of your pride by doing something, does not mean it is wrong as long as you are being honest with yourself. No one can take away from who are you are.
