Invincible - Kelly Clarkson (ft. Sia)


The Experience: In Invincible Kelly Clarkson and Sia join forces in a power anthem to hope and meaning in life. Are you invincible... a perfect storm?


Music video: Different women are trapped, their light boxed in by their problems. As the song progresses they are released, able to mourn, and able to hope.


The Meaning: When you lose hope and feel like you are all alone you need someone to take you by the hand and show you the meaning behind the mess you think you are. In Invincible Kelly and Sia show us that when that person (whom here they call Teacher) finally enters our life we begin to see ourselves in a different light. She is still her, but now she recognizes she is a perfect storm. She might not be perfect and the world might still be a hard place, but now she is invincible. With this new courage her Teacher has given her she becomes a warrior for she has finally realized in his light that her freedom lies in accepting herself as she is ...it's being weak, but strong in the truth she found. She does not need to hide from the world or be afraid and unsure for she discovers that all the fears in her life are empty threats that don't exist. In this new strength she can now sing the refrain of this anthem challenging the world to beat down on her like a waterfall because she is not afraid anymore and is ready to be free.


Ask yourself: Are you still running from your fears or have you turned to face them head on recognizing that you are invincible... a perfect storm?


LYRICS:

You know I was broke down, I had hit the ground
I was crying out, I couldn't make no sound
No one hears the silent tears collecting
You know I had lost hope, I was all alone
Never been so long till you came along
Teacher, I feel the dots connecting

Beat down on me, beat down like a waterfall
Cause I can take on so much more than I had ever dreamed
So beat down on me, beat down like a waterfall
Cause baby, I am ready to be free

Now I am invincible
No, I ain't a scared little girl no more
Yeah, I am invincible
What was I running for
I was hiding from the world
I was so afraid, I felt so unsure
Now I am invincible
Another perfect storm

Now I am a warrior, a shooting star
Know I got this far, had a broken heart
No one hears the silent tears collecting
Cause it's being weak, but strong in the truth I found
I have courage now, gonna shout it out
Teacher, I feel the dots connecting

Beat down on me, beat down like a waterfall
Cause I can take on so much more than I had ever dreamed
So beat down on me, beat down like a waterfall
Cause baby, I am ready to be free

Now I am invincible
No, I ain't a scared little girl no more
Yeah, I am invincible
What was I running for
I was hiding from the world
I was so afraid, I felt so unsure
Now I am invincible
Another perfect storm

I was running from an empty threat
Of emptiness
I was running from an empty threat
That didn't exist
I was running from an empty threat
Of abandonment
I was running from an empty threat
That didn't exist

Now I am invincible
No, I ain't a scared little girl no more
Yeah, I am invincible
What was I running for
I was hiding from the world
I was so afraid, I felt so unsure
Now I am invincible
Another perfect storm

Now I am invincible
No, I ain't a scared little girl no more
Yeah, I am invincible
What was I running for 
I was hiding from the world
I was so afraid, I felt so unsure
Now I am invincible
Another perfect storm
