Lyrics

In my youth, I was tough
I enjoyed being rough
I would fight anyone
Just to climb one more rung
Now I don't want to struggle anymore
So I lay down my worries at your door

Oh, victory
This is my happiest day
Take all my troubles away
Cause' I feel like I've already won

I was strong, I was mean
I could ride in-between
Now I can't hide my feelings anymore
So I throw wide open every door

Oh, victory
This is my happiest day
Take all my troubles away
Cause' I feel like I've already won

Cause' I can't hide my feelings anymore
So I throw wide open every door

Oh, victory
This is my happiest day
Take all my troubles away
Cause' I feel like I've already won

Oh, victory
This is my happiest day
Take all my troubles away
Cause' I feel like I've already won
Feel like I've already won
I feel like I've already won
I feel like I already won
