Venus

Left my insecurity
On earth
I’m never coming down
Venus
Ready for your blinding light

What if
I was the only girl
Venus
Teach me to rule the world
I’m strong
See me now I’m shining bright

I’m over the fear
Of letting them down
I’m ready to own my destiny
I’m letting them go
The demons in me
I’m letting you go

I’m cutting signals off from ground control
I see a goddess floating in the sky
She tells me all you have to do is fly
Venus I’m burning in the atmosphere
And I don’t care now if I shine too bright
I’ve seen the beauty in the blinding light
Now I can
Fly

She says
My prosperity
My life
Only belongs to me
Venus
Rise me up and set me free

I cant
Can’t be the only girl
Ready
Waiting to rule the world
Venus
Rise them up and set them free

I know that you’re scared
Of taking the crown
They make it seem so impossible
If you let them go
The demons in you
Girl, you let them go

I’m cutting signals off from ground control
I see a goddess floating in the sky
She tells me all you have to do is fly
Venus I’m burning in the atmosphere
And I don’t care now if I shine too bright
I’ve seen the beauty in the blinding light
Now I can
Fly

Cause they blinded me
Now I finally see
They can’t bring me down
I got with Venus with me
No more holding me back

She’s been calling me
from the day I was born
You’re my warrior
Princess
A goddess
A queen

I’m cutting signals off from ground control
I see a goddess floating in the sky
She tells me all you have to do is fly
Venus I’m burning in the atmosphere
And I don’t care now if I shine too bright
I’ve seen the beauty in the blinding light
Now I can
Fly
