Verse 1:

You only loved me when I was broken.

You only cared when I was lost,

And I was your lovely little token

That you could keep by you at no cost,

And now that I'm finally taking back what's mine,

You seem to not want to be around,

And honestly babe I think that's just fine

Because your love is keeping me down

Hook:

But how could you stand to see me so fragile

And not give a damn about me now that I'm strong

You were once my comfort, my savior.

Now, everything about you just feels so wrong,

And after everything you put me through

Tell me why is it that I still long for you?

And I think it's about time that you knew

That this is killing me,

You're killing me

Chorus:

And I can't take this anymore.

No matter how hard it hurts, I have to let it go

Because I know if I stay here, I'll be a prisoner,

And I know you like to feel superior,

But I refuse to let you make me feel inferior,

So I'm taking all that's left of me,

And finally setting myself free,

And today's the first day I won't be

Your little broken prisoner.

Verse 2:

I've seen the sunset for too long.

I've let darkness engulf me,

And you're like a prayer hat's gone wrong

That's keeping me down on my knees.

You wound these tendrils around my heart

And watch me as I suffocate

And tell me it's to keep me from falling apart

When it's you who's breaking me babe

Hook:

But I will not let you see me so fragile

Because you could care less about me now that I'm strong.

You can't be my comfort, my savior

Because everything about you is just so wrong.

After everything you put me through

Tell me how can I still long for you?

But eventually, I'll get over you.

I'm breaking free.

I will break free

Chorus:

Because I can't take this anymore.

No matter how hard it hurts, I have to let it go

Because I know if I stay here, I'll be a prisoner,

And I know you like to feel superior,

But I refuse to let you make me feel inferior,

So I'm taking all that's left of me,

And finally setting myself free,

And today's the first day I won't be

Your little broken prisoner.

Bridge:

I've spent far too many years

Watching me lose it all,

But instead of building me up,

You only let me fall.

How dare you tell me

Some people weren't made to fly.

I refuse to sit back

And let you make me cry,

No not this time

Chorus:

Because I can't take this anymore.

No matter how hard it hurts, I have to let it go

Because I know if I stay here, I'll be a prisoner,

And I know you like to feel superior,

But I refuse to let you make me feel inferior,

So I'm taking all that's left of me,

And finally setting myself free,

And today's the first day I won't be

Your little broken prisoner.
