Verse 1

One by one, every day.

You play your cards and take a chance away.

You try to make me feel

Like I'm chasing a dream that can never be real.

And you go on and on

With your little games that make me feel torn.

I've been torn apart

Again but now it's time to wake up with a start.

Chorus

How long did you think

You could make me scream?

How long did you think

I was gonna be the victim?

How long did you think it was gonna be

Before I tore it all down and broke free?

I'm tired of you always acting like

I can never even get close to my dream.

It's time that I do something about it

Instead of being a helpless victim.

Verse 2

Yes, you've taken away a lot

But I've got much more to me than you thought.

You accidentally made me strong

By making me pick myself up when things went wrong.

And you can keep on trying.

You can put on that pathetic fake smile while lying.

But I'll keep on believing in me.

Nothing that you do can bring me down, you will see.

Chorus

How long did you think

You could make me scream?

How long did you think

I was gonna be the victim?

How long did you think it was gonna be

Before I tore it all down and broke free?

I'm tired of you always acting like

I can never even get close to my dream.

It's time that I do something about it

Instead of being a helpless victim.

Bridge

I've been a victim

Of your dislike.

I've been a victim

Of your cruel strikes.

You'd stab me in the back,

I never even saw you coming, wow!

But I see through your mask,

I won't be your victim anymore now.

Chorus

How long did you think

You could make me scream?

How long did you think

I was gonna be the victim?

How long did you think it was gonna be

Before I tore it all down and broke free?

I'm tired of you always acting like

I can never even get close to my dream.

It's time that I do something about it

Instead of being a helpless victim.

A/N: from my real life.
