Avril Lavigne – It Was In Me Lyrics

It Was In Me Lyrics by Avril Lavigne


[Avril Lavigne]
Ahh
I’ve been to all the parties and it wasn’t there
I followed where my heart leads, it wasn’t there
Screamed at the top of my lungs and no one cared
Oh, oh, oh
I’ve searched up on the mountaintops, it wasn’t there
I drove a Maserati, no fulfillment there
I’ve run around the whole damn world to get back here
Oh, oh, oh

[Avril Lavigne]
Now let me feel high when I’m sober
Let me feel young when I’m older
Let me feel proud when it’s over
I finally realized, all of this time
It was in me
All along, it was in me

[Avril Lavigne]
I took the time to listen and I found it here (Ahh)
I stopped to see the vision and it was clear (Ahh)
Everyone’s got an opinion but I don’t care
Oh, oh, oh

[Avril Lavigne]
Now let me feel high when I’m sober
Let me feel young when I’m older
Let me feel proud when it’s over
I finally realized, all of this time
It was in me
All along, it was in me

[Avril Lavigne]
Oh, and I
All I needed was a little faith in my life
All I needed was a little trust in myself
All I needed was to find the truth in my heart
Ah, ah, ah

[Avril Lavigne]
So let me feel high when I’m sober
Let me feel young when I’m older
Let me feel proud when it’s over
Yeah, it was in me (Let me feel high when I’m sober)
It was in me (Let me feel young when I’m older)
Let me feel proud when it’s over
I finally realized, all of this time
It was in me
All along, it was in me

About ‘It Was In Me’ Song :

“This is the most sentimental track on the album, ‘Head Above Water’.
At least, it was the one i liked the most.
Avril discusses how she wants to feel high when she is sober and young when she is old in a contradictory, yet catchy chorus.”
This song can be compared to ‘iris’ by the Goo Goo Dolls.
The style is similar, besides the construction of the verses.
The track is another intense ballad.
The lyrics are very intimate as she sings about how she could not always find herself in life, but after so much searching, she realised that everything was inside her.
