Verse 1

The more you hurt me,

The more my illusion of you fades,

I've stopped falling free,

Once upon a time you were bright red,

Shining in the center of my eyes,

But now somewhere between my sighs,

Your harsh words, all your thoughtless actions,

They finally woke me up and

Chorus

I just wanted to thank you for every scar

That you're making in my heart,

Cause it's showing me who you are,

Your true colors- shades of black and blue,

I can finally see right through you

Because of the cruel things you do.

Verse 2

The more you ignore me,

The easier it gets for me to forget

Everything we used to be,

And the sweet memories that we made.

Long gone are the summer days,

When you were on my mind, always.

Thought I knew you like the back of my hand.

But I didn't, I see now, and

Chorus

I just wanted to thank you for every scar

That you're making in my heart,

Cause it's showing me who you are,

Your true colors- shades of black and blue,

I can finally see right through you

Because of the cruel things you do.

Bridge

And the way you treat you,

How you push me so far away,

Thank you for every scar,

Because I can finally say,

I'm better off without you in my life.

My tears have dried, now I'll wipe

The sad scowl off my face,

And I just wanted to thank you for the mess.

Chorus

I just wanted to thank you for every scar

That you're making in my heart,

Cause it's showing me who you are,

Your true colors- shades of black and blue,

I can finally see right through you

Because of the cruel things you do.

So thank you.
