Verse 1

All it takes is rumors to start a fight-

Even if I always keep my lips shut tight,

They're really good at making up my words.

A shield isn't good enough anymore,

I hold them up but I'm still at the floor,

That's why it's time that I took up my swords.

Chorus

I'm a good person,

But this is a big bad world.

And I won't make it if

I'm a self-righteous little girl….

I will never start a fight myself,

But if you do, don't expect me to sit and cry and yelp.

Believe me, I'll be fighting back.

It's the will to hurt a person, not the strength that I lack.

And believe me, I'll fight back.

Verse 2

All it takes is a few harsh words for me

To be hurt and crying, I'm really that easy,

I don't know how but they always figure this out.

And then there they go, exploiting it,

Trying hard to knock me off my feet,

But I'm done hiding the hurt behind just a pout.

Chorus

I'm a good person,

But this is a big bad world.

And I won't make it if

I'm a self-righteous little girl….

I will never start a fight myself,

But if you do, don't expect me to sit and cry and yelp.

Believe me, I'll be fighting back.

It's the will to hurt a person, not the strength that I lack.

And believe me, I'll fight back.
