  • You know the bed feels warmer
    Sleeping here alone
    You know I dream in color
    And do the things I want

    You think you got the best of me
    Think you had the last laugh
    Bet you think that everything good is gone
    Think you left me broken down
    Think that I'd come running back
    Baby you don't know me, 'cause you're dead wrong

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
    What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
    Footsteps even lighter
    Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and I
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

    You heard that I was starting over with someone new
    But told you I was moving on over you

    You didn't think that I'd come back
    I'd come back swinging
    You try to break me but you see what doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
    What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
    Footsteps even lighter
    Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and I
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

    Thanks to you I got a new thing started
    Thanks to you I'm not the broken-hearted
    Thanks to you I'm finally thinking 'bout me
    You know in the end the day to left was just my beginning
    In the end

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
    What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
    Footsteps even lighter
    Doesn't mean I'm over 'cause you're gone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
    Just me, myself and I
    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
    Stand a little taller
    Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
