Verse 1

Don't know who you are,

Or what pleasure you'd get if you could break me down.

I've got many scars.

But I've come a long way, I've turned my life around.

Chorus

And you can't drag me back to those dark days.

My life's good now, you can't take it away.

I've worked too hard to find ground under my feet,

Overcome my fear of being shot in the streets.

And I know I'll be okay.

You can't drag me back to those dark days.

Verse 2

Noone's scared forever.

I've learnt to wear my heart on my sleeves again.

I've found love, finally.

Now let me forget my past and let go of the pain.

Chorus

And you can't drag me back to those dark days.

My life's good now, you can't take it away.

I've worked too hard to find ground under my feet,

Overcome my fear of being shot in the streets.

And I know I'll be okay.

You can't drag me back to those dark days.

Bridge

I know you can't slit my throat with a knife.

Somehow I still believe in the good in life,

In all those old sayings that truth is above lie.

And I've done nothing wrong to deserve to die.

I know millions of innocent people die every day.

But I've turned my life around, now it won't be taken away.

I'm not scared of you like I was before.

I'm not thirteen anymore.

Chorus

And you can't drag me back to those dark days.

My life's good now, you can't take it away.

I've worked too hard to find ground under my feet,

Overcome my fear of being shot in the streets.

And I know I'll be okay.

You can't drag me back to those dark days.
