[Verse 1]
You used to say that I'd never be
Nothing without you and I'd believe

I'm shot in the lungs, I gasp, I can't breathe
Just lay here with me, baby, hold me please
And I'd beg and I'd plead, drop to knees
And I'd cry and I'd scream, "Baby, please don't leave"

Snatch the keys from your hand, I would squeeze
And you'd laugh, and you'd tease, you're just fucking with me
And you must hate me

Why do you date me, if you say I make you sick?
And you've had enough of me

I smother you, I'm 'bout to jump off the edge

[Hook]
But you won't break me, you'll just make me stronger than I was
Before I met you, I bet you I'll be just fine without you
And if I stumble, I won't crumble, I'll get back up and uhh
But I'mma still be humble when I scream "Fuck you"
Cause I'm stronger than I was


[Verse 2]
A beautiful face is all that you have
Cause on the inside you're ugly and mad
But you're all that I love, I grasp, you can't leave

Please stay here with me, baby hold me please
And I'd beg and I plead, drop to knees
And I'd cry and I'd scream, baby, please don't leave

But you left and you took everything I had left
And left nothing, nothing for me

So please don't wake me from this dream, baby
We're still together in my head

And you're still in love with me
'til I woke up to discover that that dream was dead


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
You walked out, I almost died, it was almost a homicide
That you caused cause I was so traumatized

Felt like I was in for a long bus ride
I'd rather die than you not be by my side
Can't count how many times I vomited, cried
Go to my room, turn the radio on and hide

Thought we were Bonnie and Clyde, nah
On the inside you were Jekyll and Hyde

I, felt like my, whole relationship with you was a lie
It was you and I, why did I think it was ride or die?

Cause if you coulda, took my life you woulda
It's like you put a, knife through my chest
And pushed it right through to the, other side
Of my back and stuck a spike too, shoulda

Put up more of a fight, but I couldn't
At the time, no one could hurt me like you coulda
Take you back now, what's the likelihood of that?
Bite me bitch, chew on a nineteen footer
Cause this morning I finally stood up
Held my chin up
, finally showed a sign
Of life in me for the, first time since you left me
And left me with nothing but shattered dreams
And the life we coulda, had and we could've been

But I'm breaking out of this slump I'm in
Pulling myself out of the dumps once again
I'm getting up once and for all, fuck this shit
I'ma be late for the pity party
But you're never gonna beat me to the fucking punch again

Took it on the chin like a champ
So don't lump me in with the chump-ions

I'm done being your punching bag
It was the November 31st today
Would've been our anniversary
Two years but you left on the 1st of May

I wrote it on a calendar, was gonna call
But couldn't think of the words to say
But they came to me just now
So I put 'em in a verse to lay

[Bridge]
And I thank you cause you made me a better person than I was
But I hate you cause you drained me, I gave you all, you gave me none

But if you blame me, you're crazy and after all is said and done
I'm still angry, yeah, I may be, I may never trust someone


[Hook]
