Trívia: A participação dos fãs se deu por meio de um concurso no site de Christina. Originalmente, a música conteria um número menor de gravações, mas Christina e Premier receberam tantas mensagens, que mudaram a estrutura da música.


It seems like a lifetime
Since I felt like a prisoner of my dreams, yeah
It took such a long time
For me to realize just how to be
And to listen to me
Don’t go thinkin’ I’m not thankful
Cause me, I’ve got my hands full of good things, oh
And I hope I can give back
A little bit of what you’ve given me

So thank you
For standing
Right by me [I will always love you]
So thank you
For being
Behind me [You are just so amazing]
And watching me grow
And lettin’ others know
That you’ll still believe in what I’ll be

[Fan recordings]

Ha.

Some people have said things
In times about me that weren’t always true (Ooh yeah)
But you’ve always been there
To give that extra love to pull me through
To do what I gotta do
Cause there’ll always be those ups and downs
But you always seem to stick around
And see
See me through to believe (yeah)
And I hope I can keep back
A little bit of what you’ve given me
Ya give me all that I need (yeah)

So thank you
For standing
Right by me [I thank you for everything]
So thank you
For being
Behind me [Thank you, Christina]
And watching me grow
And lettin’ others know
That you’ll still believe in what I’ll be [Sing it, girl]

It took a while ‘til I could do what I wanted
And now I’m so happy that I started where
I started
I’m thankin’ god that I can be in a position
To do my own thing now
And make my own decisions
And so I’m thanking you
For being true
And standin’ by me through and through

[Fan recordings]
