Oh, woah, oh, yeah
I still think about how it used to be
So entwined in my own lies
Surrounded by this make believe
I’ve been held by despondency
I should have known the road
I chose would run out on me (oh no)

I could’ve faded been jaded by every consequence
(No, no no)
Every word that you heard was part of my defense
(My defense oh)
You can hurt me, desert me it makes no difference
I give as good as I get

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I’m not gonna to go that way again
(Never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Wouldn’t give it time to comprehend
(You should’ve known that)
You should’ve known it would make me stronger
I was never gonna fade away
(Hey, hey, hey)
Don’t you know that
I keep it coming
My destiny ain’t running away from me
Ain’t it all so bittersweet

(Oh, yeah)

In my life
I had no room for compromise
There’s things I’ve done that have been the ones
That I have had to leave behind
Look in my eyes, you barely recognize
The woman who depended on you
To sing a little praise or criticize
(Oh no)

So I hide it, divided by what I felt inside
(No, no, no)
Now I take it or make it
I’m gonna be alright
(Be alright, oh)
Whether you need me, believe me
You’ll never hurt my pride
Finally all this feels like

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I’m not gonna to go that way again
(Never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Wouldn’t give it time to comprehend
(You should’ve known that)
You should’ve known it would make me stronger
(Known it’d make me stronger)
I was never gonna fade away
(Hey, hey, hey)
Don’t you know that
I keep it coming
My destiny ain’t running away from me
Ain’t it all so bittersweet

Look into my eyes

I wont be left behind
Everything’s going to be fine
And I have never felt like this
I have no need to reminisce
Those old days have gone
And I keep holding on

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I’m not gonna to go that way again
(Never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Wouldn’t give it time to comprehend
(You should’ve known that)
You should’ve known it would make me stronger
(Known it’d make me stronger)
I was never gonna fade away
(Hey, hey, hey)
Don’t you know that
I keep it coming
My destiny ain’t running away from me
Ain’t it all so bittersweet

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I’m not gonna to go that way again
(Go that way again baby)
(Never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Wouldn’t give it time to comprehend
(You should’ve known that)
You should’ve known it would make me stronger
(You should’ve known, oh)
I was never gonna fade away
(Hey, hey, hey)
Don’t you know that
I keep it coming
My destiny ain’t running away from me
Ain’t it all so bittersweet

Like a weight falling from my shoulders
I’m not gonna to go that way again
(Never going back)
When everybody said that my days were over
Wouldn’t give it time to comprehend
(You should’ve known that)
You should’ve known it would make me stronger
(Known it’d make me stronger)
I was never gonna fade away
(Never gonna fade away)
(Hey, hey, hey)
Don’t you know that
I keep it coming
My destiny ain’t running away from me

(FADE)
