Thank You

Album: Thank You (2004)
Charted: 2
  • The fights, those nights
    I tried to pretend it don't hurt
    The way, I prayed
    Someday that you would love me
    Really, completely
    Just how I wanted it to be
    But no, so wrong
    Can't believe I stayed with you so long

    You hit, you spit, you split, ever-why bit of me, yeah
    You stole, you broke, you're cold
    You're such a joke to me, yeah

    For every last bruise you gave me
    For every time I sat in tears
    For the million ways you hurt me
    I just want to tell you this
    You broke my world, made me strong
    Thank you
    Messed up my dreams, made me strong
    Thank you

    My head, near dead
    Just the way you wanted it
    My soul, stone cold
    'cause I was under you're control
    So young, so dumb

    Knew just how to make me succumb
    But I un-derstand
    To make yourself feel like a man

    You hit, you spit, you split, ever-why bit of me, yeah
    You stole, you broke, you're cold
    You're such a joke to me, yeah

    For every last bruise you gave me
    For every time I sat in tears
    For the million ways you hurt me
    I just want to tell you this
    You broke my world, made me strong
    Thank you
    Messed up my dreams, made me strong
    Thank you

    You coulda had it all babe
    It coulda been so right
    I woulda given you everything
    Morning through night
    Yeah, you taught me some lessons
    Those are my blessings
    That won't happen again
    Thank you Writer/s: CARSTEN SCHACK, JAMELIA DAVIS, PETER BIKER
