"Brand New Me" as written by Emeli Sande and Alicia J Augello-cook....
It's been a while, I'm not who I was before
You look surprised, your words don't burn me anymore
Been meaning to tell you, but I guess it's clear to see
Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of me
Can't be bad, I found a brand new kind of free

Careful with your ego, he's the one that we should blame
Had to grab my heart back
God know something had to change
I thought that you'd be happy
I found the one thing I need, why you mad
It's just the brand new kind of me

It took a long long time to get here
It took a brave, brave girl to try
It took one too many excuses, one too many lies
Don't be surprised, don't be surprised

if i talk a little louder
If I speak up when you're wrong
If I walk a little taller
I'd be known to you too long
If you noticed that I'm different
Don't take it personally
Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of me
And it ain't bad, I found a brand new kind of free

Oh, it took a long long road to get here
It took a brave brave girl to try
I've taken one too many excuses, one too many lies
Don't be surprised, oh see you look surprised

Hey, if you were a friend, you want to get know me again
If you were worth a while
You'd be happy to see me smile
I'm not expecting sorry
I'm too busy finding myself
I got this
I found me, I found me, yeah

I don't need your opinion
I'm not waiting for your okay
I'll never be perfect, but at least now I'm brave
Now, my heart is open
And I can finally breathe
Don't be mad, it's just the brand new kind of free
That ain't bad, I found a brand new kind of me
Don't be mad, it's just a brand new time for me

    Song MeaningThis song is pretty amazing! I love it, I've been playing it on repeat.
    Anyway, to what i think the meaning of the song is. Well, I think it's about a girl who's changed, it took a while "It took a long long time to get here" but now she's stronger, braver and finally free. She totally changed and the guy that she used to be in a relationship with when she was more of a pushover has trouble accepting the 'new her'.

    In the bridge she says that if he was a friend and worth while he would try to get to know this new her instead being shocked and mad that he can't get whatever he wants from her all the time anymore.
    Just my opinion :) I just had to add this when i say that there were no other interpretations of the song.

    General CommentI think it's about a woman who completely lost herself in an unhealthy relationship. She battled thick and thin with this man to go nowhere good in the end. She made a new commitment to stop fighting so hard to something that broke her all the way down to nothing and instead fight to get herself back. She learned to love who she is inside and found a peaceful happiness no one could never take away again. She's learned happiness comes within and is one thing in this world that can't be stolen. She regrets nothing about the past because she realizes it's what made her stronger, wiser and inspired the brand new her she loves so much. She gave too much of herself to the wrong person. She runs in to him and the new her is like a slap in the face to what he had taken for granted and lost forever. In the end the only love that truly matters is the one who helps build you up not break you down. Settling for less than that is no longer an option.
