From the recording With or Without You

Lyrics

All I keep on hearing is
That last hurtful thing that you said
Words that keep
Repeating in my head

It’s made it hard to get back up
And tell myself I’ve cried enough
The truth is that you lied to me
And took away my dignity


But I’m the one who’s standing tall
I’m tough and brave and beautiful
The things you couldn’t see
Well you’re the fool, not me


All the time I fought for you
It taught me what love’s supposed to do
Look at me I’m stronger now
I made it through somehow
I'll give my heart to someone else
Cause I’ve learned to love myself
And you’re the one who really should be sad
oooohhh
‘Cause This is the me you could’ve had


If you see me out somewhere
Just pretend we never met
It’s easier
Than facing the regret


‘Cause you’ll see what a big mistake
You made that night you walked away
Admit it boy you know I’m right
There’s good that came from your goodbye


I’m the one who’s standing tall
I’m tough and I’m brave, I’m beautiful
The things you couldn’t see
Well you’re the fool, not me


All the time I fought for you
It taught me what love’s supposed to do
Look at me I’m stronger now
I made it through somehow
I'll give my heart to someone else
‘Cause I’ve learned to love myself
And you’re the one who really should be sad
oooohhhhh
‘cause, This is the me you could’ve had

I pushed through that pain
You left me no choice
I’m better on my own
I’ve finally found my voice
Oooooohhhhhhhh

This is the me
This is the me
I’m sayin’
This is the me you could’ve had

Oooohhhhh ooohhhhh
