Song Description

The singer recalls events in her life that could've knocked her down but stays true to her mantra that she isn't an ordinary woman.

Story Behind the Song

I guess I've just had one too many friends who have had to overcome crazy crap, like cancer, and wanted to write a song to honor their bravery and strength. This song started with the groove and I just plunked the words in from there. I was trying to write something to a quirky beat - that's where those "parenthetical" lines came in. Was just a fun song to write and I love dedicating it to friends who I know who are survivors of all kinds.

Lyrics

Been struck by lightening (stung a little)
Been bitten by a lion (left a little mark)
Been tempted to hide behind these memories
But I got a little mantra & It's gotten me this far


CHORUS
I am not an ordinary woman
Seen more than my share of troubled times
I could choose to play a victim or a martyr in this life
But I didn't, no
I am not an ordinary woman


Been ambushed by villains (I bled a little)
Been buried underground (got a little dark)
It'd be easy to turn off all the love in me
But I'd be the one to suffer if I harden my heart


REPEAT CHORUS


Every battle scar
Every broken heart
Has strengthened my conviction


REPEAT CHORUS
