It all depends on how you look at it
It may seem old to you,
but did you know for someone like me
it's all brand new

Oh I know, I said I was lonely and feeling kinda sad,
but chile look at me now, I'm feeling better than I ever have

The child in me was crying out, wondering what was going on,
I was forced to face myself, by myself, and do it all alone

I feel like jumping, hopping and skipping
cause I'm happy as can be,
I guess you can call me the product
of a recycled personality

I've hurt and been hurt, taught and been taught,
but I finally realized there's no need to be distraught

It has all been part of my test, to prove my worthiness,
to exist and do my best to live unselfish

After all is said and done
I stand before you as one

One with myself, loving myself, hugging myself,
enjoying myself, being myself

You ask how I did it, it is no big secret,
no special formula, no rhythm, no rhyme,
I guess I've just been recycled time after time.
