Intro/Chorus:

You really sunk me down, you made me feel so low.

I was on the ground, but now I’m so thankful. Ya

I’m so glad that you were bad, you taught me things I

never had — known. I’m so good being alone, just some

things —– don’t feel like home.

I thought it was normal how you treated me. I never knew but everyone could see. You made me think that’s how it should be… deserved what I got, even physically. Made me feel I never mattered at all.

I wasn’t good enough — you made me feel small.

Chorus:

I’m so glad that you were bad, you taught me things I

never had — known. I’m so good being alone, just some

things —– don’t feel like home.

Moments I didn’t recognize who I was at all.

Had to catch myself before the fall. Came to terms with what

you put me through. To say hello to me —- I had to say
(pause)
…goodbye to you.

Chorus:
If you could see me now feeling strong. My voice is loud not silent, I’m feeling proud. My mirrors a new person reflecting me. I’m staring at the person I was meant to be. There’s a new girl — I like who I see. I’m

looking ahead to my destiny …
