The Greatest - Sia

By: Hannah Shlapak

Music has the power to change our perspective, mood and even our thoughts. Isn’t that amazing? When you’re feeling down on yourself, when nothing appears to be working out, or when you just need a good tune to keep you going, check out Sia’s “The Greatest.”

Its message is this: Don’t give up. Don’t let anyone else’s bad thoughts, negativity, or your own inward demons get you down. Out of your struggles are born your successes. You don’t need anyone else to make you so wonderful, you are the greatest all on your own! You are free to be you and you “wow” us all.

Uh-oh, running out of breath, but I

Oh, I, I got stamina

Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes

Well, oh, I got stamina

And uh-oh, I see another mountain to climb

But I, I, I got stamina

Uh-oh, I need another lover, be mine

Cause I, I, I got stamina

Don't give up, I won't give up

Don't give up, no no no

Don't give up, I won't give up

Don't give up, no no no

I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive

I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest

The greatest, the greatest alive

The greatest, the greatest alive

Well, uh-oh, running out of breath, but I

Oh, I, I got stamina

Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes

But, oh, I got stamina

And oh yeah, running to the waves below

But I, I got stamina

And oh yeah, I'm running and I've just enough

And uh-oh, I got stamina

Don't give up, I won't give up

Don't give up, no no no

Don't give up, I won't give up

Don't give up, no no no

I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive

I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest

The greatest, the greatest alive

The greatest, the greatest alive

Oh-oh, I got stamina

Oh-oh, I got stamina

Oh-oh, I got stamina

Oh-oh, I got stamina

Hey, I am the truth

Hey, I am the wisdom of the fallen - I'm the youth

Hey, I am the greatest

Hey, this is the proof

Hey, I work hard, pray hard, pay dues, hey

I transform with pressure - I'm hands-on with effort

I fell twice before my bounce back was special

Letdowns will get you, and the critics will test you

But the strong will survive, another scar may bless you, ah

Don't give up (no no), I won't give up (no no)

Don't give up, no no no (nah)

Don't give up, I won't give up

Don't give up, no no no

I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive

I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)

The greatest, the greatest alive

(Don't give up, don't give up, don't give up; I got stamina)
