  • Well, you almost had me fooled
    Told me that I was nothing without you
    Oh, but after everything you've done
    I can thank you for how strong I have become

    'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
    I had to learn how to fight for myself
    And we both know all the truth I could tell
    I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"

    I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
    I hope your soul is changin', changin'
    I hope you find your peace
    Falling on your knees, prayin'

    I'm proud of who I am
    No more monsters, I can breathe again
    And you said that I was done
    Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
    'Cause I can make it on my own, oh
    And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
    I'll bring thunder, I'll bring rain, oh
    When I'm finished, they won't even know your name

    You brought the flames and you put me through hell
    I had to learn how to fight for myself
    And we both know all the truth I could tell
    I'll just say this is "I wish you farewell"

    I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin'
    I hope your soul is changin', changin'
    I hope you find your peace
    Falling on your knees, prayin'

    Ah sometimes, I pray for you at night, oh
    Someday, maybe you'll see the light
    Whoa oh oh oh, some say, in life, you're gonna get what you give
    But some things only God can forgive

    Yeah! (I hope you're somewhere prayin', prayin')
    I hope your soul is changin', changin'
    I hope you find your peace
    Falling on your knees, prayin' Writer/s: Andrew Joslyn, Ben Abraham, Kesha Sebert, Ryan S. Lewis
