Stronger Than I Was

You used to say, that I'd never be
nothin' without you and I'd believe
I'm shot in the lungs, I gasp, I can't breathe

and I'd beg and I'd plead drop to knees and I'd cry and I'd scream "baby please don't leave"

Chorus
But you won't break me, you'll just make me, stronger than I was
before I met you, I'll bet you'll I'll be just
fine without you and if I stumble, I won't crumble, I'll get back up and uuuhhh
but im'a 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 ug-ly and mad
but you're all that I love, I grasp, you can't leave

and I'd beg and I'd 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 nothin', nothin' 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

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 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?

mmlp2lyrics_stronger_11
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

mmlp2lyrics_stronger_12
take ya back now what's the likelihood of that? bite me bitch, chew on a nineteen footer
'cause this mornin' I finally stood up, held my chin up finally showed a sign of life in me for the
first time since you left and left me with nothin' but shattered dreams and the life we coulda
had, and what coulda been, but I'm breakin' out of this slump I'm in
336040
mmlp2lyrics_stronger_13
pullin' 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 fuckin' punch again
took it on the chin like a champ, so don't lump me in with those 'chump-ions'
I'm done being your punching bag

Bridge
It was November 31st today
would have been our anniversary, two years but you left on the first 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
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
