  • Lyrics
  • Go ahead and say what you're gonna say
    Give it to me straight, don't sugarcoat it
    Go ahead and do what you're gonna do
    We're already done, I already know it
    So you can take your new blond out to get your drink on
    For everyone to see
    But you don't get to get to me

    I wear my pain like stilettos
    As bad as it may hurt, no, you'll never know
    I keep walking with my head up, putting on a show
    And fronting like nothing is wrong
    I talk the talk like I'm a tough girl
    'Cause there ain't room for weakness in a rough world
    That keeps saying you were never enough, girl,
    Yeah, when you get burned, you learn to be strong
    I wear my pain like stilettos

    I ain't staying down, tonight I'm going out
    Yeah, even if I have to fake it
    A little black dress to cover my mess
    So you won't know my heart is breaking
    I pull myself together from the fallout of forever
    For everyone to see
    Oh, you don't get to get to me

    I wear my pain like stilettos
    As bad as it may hurt, no, you'll never know
    I keep walking with my head up, putting on a show
    And fronting like nothing is wrong
    I talk the talk like I'm a tough girl
    'Cause there ain't room for weakness in a rough world
    That keeps saying you were never enough, girl,
    Yeah, when you get burned, you learn to be strong
    I wear my pain like stilettos

    I wear my pain like stilettos
    As bad as it may hurt, no, you'll never know
    I keep walking with my head up, putting on a show
    And fronting like nothing is wrong
    I talk the talk like I'm a tough girl
    'Cause there ain't room for weakness in a rough world
    That keeps saying you were never enough, girl,
    Yeah, when you get burned, you learn to be strong
    I wear my pain like stilettos, yeah
    I wear my pain like stilettosWriter/s: FOREST WHITEHEAD, KELSEA NICOLE BALLERINI, KEVIN STUART JAMES SAVIGAR
