Natasha Bedingfield is another ‘real’ artist; there’s always much energy and provocation in her music – both words, style and voice.  I’ve admired her since “Unwritten” but in “Strip Me” she has taken her artistry to a whole new level.  There have been a lot of nay-say about the album by critics but it has coherent musical and contextual theme and I love it.

Here’s the lyrics to her song “Weightless” from the “Strip Me” album.  It’s my favourite among the tracks and it’s as inspirational as “Unwritten”.

Natasha Bedingfield

Beautiful woman ... Viva Natasha!

I have to keep reminding myself
I’m not like anyone else
That’s my face on my ID
That makes me VIP
No one exactly like this
No one with my fingerprints
No one can touch you like me
No I can’t fake what you see

They told me, “Girl, to get you’re way, you’ve got to be a bitch!”
They say a guy won’t get the girl, if he’s not filthy rich
You stop with little changes, till you don’t know who you are
Surround yourself with friends who only call you a superstar

Oh yeah (oh yeah), Oh yeah (oh yeah), Oh yeah (oh yeah)
(Ready, set, baby let’s go)

The sky is the limit and I just wanna float
Free as a spirit on a journey of hope
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless, I’m weightless
Millions of balloons gather to the ground
Weight of the world tries to hold us down
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless, I’m weightless

I’m weightless, I’m weightless, I’m weightless … Mm

All the things I held in my fist
If I don’t let go, I don’t exist
They’ve become the things that define me
How I look and the things to buy me
That’s not important anymore
I feel me rising off the floor
Light as a feather, I’m carefree, I’m weightless…

The sky is the limit and I just wanna float
Free as a spirit on a journey of hope
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless, I’m weightless
Millions of balloons heading to the ground
Weight of the world tries to hold us down
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless, I’m weightless

(Oh yeah) I’m weightless, (oh yeah) I’m weightless, (oh yeah) I’m weightless
La la la la la…

They told me, “Girl, to get you’re way, you’ve got to be a bitch!”
They say a guy won’t get the girl, if he’s not filthy rich
It seems to me that’s so heavy it weighs you down like lead
Don’t wanna be someone I hate ’cause that too make no sense … No

The sky is the limit and I just wanna float
Free as a spirit on a journey of hope
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless … I’m weightless

(Ready, set, baby let’s go) … Woo

The sky is the limit and I just wanna float
Free as a spirit on a journey of hope
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless (oh weightless), I’m weightless (oh weightless)
Millions of balloons gather to the ground
Weight of the world tries to hold us down
Cut the strings and let me go
I’m weightless (oh weightless), I’m weightless…

(Ready, set, baby let’s go)
Oh yeah (oh weightless), oh yeah (oh weightless), oh yeah (oh weightless)
I’m free as a spirit
Oh yeah (oh weightless), oh yeah (oh weightless)
There’s nothing holding me down
(Oh yeah) … (Nothing holding me down)
