Music Monday - Brand New Me by Alicia Keys


Alicia Keys needs no introduction. If it wasn't her voice, sound or songwriting talents that hooked me, then maybe it was the fact she's talented, stylish, gorgeous, around the same age as me and a mum like me. So it's really a no-brainer.

I have to admit when I first heard this track I didn't like it much. I found it a little bit too wet. So it's slightly ironic that it has has not only grown on me, but also become quite fitting for this time of year. Hence why it made it to Music Mondays! ^_^

Hope you guys had a good Monday and have a fab week!

LYRICS...

BRAND NEW ME
by Alicia Keys

It's been awhile
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 a 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 knows something had to change
Thought that you'd be happy
I found the one thing I need
Why you mad?
It's just a brand new kind of me.

CHORUS
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've been on to you too long
If you notice that I'm different
Don't take it personally
Don't be mad
It's just a brand new kind of me
It ain't bad
I found a brand new kind of free

CHORUS

I said you look surprised

If you are a friend
You'll want to get to know me again
If you're worth the while
You'll be happy to see me smile
I don't expect your sorry
I'm too busy finding myself
I got this
I found me
I found me

I don't need your opinion
I'm not waiting for your ok
I'll never be perfect
But at least now I'm brave
Now my heart is open
I can finally breathe
Don't be mad
It's just a brand new kind of free

That ain't bad
I found a brand new kind of me
Don't be mad
This is a brand new time for me
