You ignore me until I see your way
But how could I trust the words you say?
Would you hurt me until I give in?
Would you resist common sense and turn into sin?
I told you I wouldn’t fall down
Never again shall I make a sound
Because if I wasn’t giving in
Then I wouldn’t be sitting here crying
But sometimes it just takes a kick to the gut
To show you how you can get back up
And maybe I had to learn the hard way
But baby, I’m coming back today
And I’m going to show you how strong I really am
Going to show you, I’m not afraid, of any man!
