"Finally" as written by Ce Ce Peniston, Felipe Trio Delgado, Rodney Kay Jackson, E. L. Linnear and Harry Byart....
Mmm

Ever since I was a baby girl, I had a dream
Cinderella theme
Crazy as it seems
Always knew that deep inside that there would come that day
But I would have to wait
Make so many mistakes
I couldn't comprehend
As I watched it unfold
This classic story told, I left it in the cold
Walking through un-open doors that led me back to you
Each one unlocking more of the truth
I finally stopped tripping on my youth
I finally got lost inside of you
I finally know I needed to grow
And finally my mate has met my soul

Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have our differences
Something strange and new is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad
It's the best that I've ever had
Give my love to him finally

Mmm

I remember the beginning you already knew
I acted like a fool
Just trying to be cool
Frontin' like it didn't matter
I just ran away
Put on another face
Was lost in my own space
Found what it's like to hurt selfishly
I was scared to give up me
Afraid to just believe
I was in a jealous, insecure, pathetic place
Stumbled through the mess that I had made
Finally got out of my own way
I finally started living for today
I finally know I needed to grow
And finally my mate has met my soul

Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have our differences
Something strange and new is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad
It's the best that I've ever had
Give my love to him finally

Mmm

Finally, finally

Finally
Now my destiny can begin
Though we will have our differences
Something beautiful is happening, is happening
Finally
Now my life doesn't seem so bad
It's the best that I've ever had
Give my love to him finally

Oh
Finally, finally
Finally

    General CommentNormally a song like this would typically relate to a love being found but I see it as a girl journey in finding God within her. If you look at it out of the context of love, I think it makes perfect sense. But anyway, I think this is one of Fergie's decent songs (no spelling necessary) and lyrical wise, it actually pretty good. Big girls don't cry is still definitely my favorite.

    General CommentThis song can defenetly relate to god.
    But from a personal experience.
    I believe this song is about her searching for that cinderella story and when she finally found it she couldn't believe it came true so she left (it in the cold) knowing what she had was good she felt it was too good to be true ...(how could she find her cinderella story so fast so quick?). she ran away on a journey to see if there was something better (selfishly) and found out what it was like to be hurt.."maybe a guy who treated her wrong" (proving herself wrong)..for what she had found was really her (soulmate)....so her journey led her right back to him......(her cinderella story)....so now that she knows that she needed to grow....finally now her journey is complete...finally she can give her love to him....finally(because when she walked out that door to find nothing(she admits in the song she made some mistakes)...she now knows it was him all along)....

    It could also mean her getting back with him and having difficulties because she knows she did something wrong for leaving him with no reason(connected to "big girls don't cry)....(Fair tails don't always have a happy ended do they?...and I forsake the dark ahead if I stay!).....

    When she left him in the cold and came back to him.....there was a lot of mess to clean up..."stumbling through the mess that I have made"......

    And when her and him finally cleared the issues...she can finnaly see.....her destiny can begin


    Basicly about a girl who made a mistake unpurposely just following her heart and made some mistakes along her way....maybe hurt some people admitting to it.....and finally realized what she needed was right in front of her in the beginning..

    People if you have something goood no matter what....even if u think someone can love u better hold on to it tight and never let it go...if sumone better is out there leave it in gods hands!!!.....peace.

    General CommentI agree with the above. It's about a girl who's insecure, selfish, and afraid to love. Then she finds out, after soul searching, that what she had was good for her all along and now she's in a better place to love her man.

    This and "Big Girls Don't Cry" remind me of my ex-girlfriend who left for Indiana pretty recently. She was having a bad time in LA, but once she got there she kept telling me she missed me. Now she's there working stuff out for herself.

    General Commentone correction in the lyrcs - its not 'though it will have a different set' its actually 'though we will have our differences' :)

    the song could be about god like everyone said, or it could be about how her life is 'finally' falling into place,things are starting to go right for her, and she's living her life the right way (i've finally started living for today)n she's met the one that helped make it happen. just my thought. peace x
