Lyrics:

She is a pyramid
But with him she’s just a grain of sand
This love’s too strong like mice and men
Squeezing out the life that should be laid in She was a hurricane-cane-cane-cane
But now she’s just a gust of wind
She used to set the sails of a thousand ships
Was a force to be reckoned with She could be a statue of liberty
She could be a Joan of Arc
But he’s scared of the light that’s inside of her
So he keeps her in the dark Oh, she used to be a pearl…Ohh
Yeah, she used to rule the world…Ohh
Can’t believe she’s become a shell of herself
‘Cause she used to be a pearl She was unstoppable
Moved fast as light, could never lench
But now she’s stuck deep in some man
Wishing that they’d never ever met She could be a statue of liberty
She could be a Joan of Arc
But he’s scared of the light that’s inside of her
So he keeps her in the dark Oh, she used to be a pearl…Ohh
Yeah, she used to rule the world…Ohh
Can’t believe she’s become a shell of herself
‘Cause she used to be a – Do you know that there’s a way out,
there’s a way out
there’s a way out
there’s a way out You don’t have to be held down,
be held down
be held down
be held down ‘Cause I used to be a shell
Yeah, I let him rule my world
my world, ohh, yeah But I woke up and grew strong
And I can still go on
And no one can take my pearl You don’t have to be shell, No
You’re the one that rules your world, ohh
You are strong and you’ll learn
that you can still go on And you’ll always be a pearl She is unstoppable
