Verse 1

Gripping your hands tight, I was on cloud nine,

Soaring through the skies like a kite,

Gliding with the winds through the night.

Gripping your hands tight, everything was fine-

Pre-chorus 1

Until you let go of my hands,

And I crash landed on the ground,

I shattered into tiny pieces,

And you never even looked down.

Chorus

Well, thank you, the pain molded me.

Living undercover, now I'm breaking free.

I won't hide in my cocoon any longer.

I'm emerging out of it so much stronger.

I'm not scared today- the sky doesn't seem too high.

Now I'll spread my own beautiful wings, like a butterfly.

Verse 2

Distant memory, now that's all you are to me,

You don't have to say you're sorry,

I'm flying higher without you, don't worry,

Distant memory, of me crying, but now I see,

Pre-chorus 2

You chained me to the ground

With the shackles around my heart.

And when push came to shove,

It took you seconds to tear me apart.

Chorus

Well, thank you, the pain molded me.

Living undercover, now I'm breaking free.

I won't hide in my cocoon any longer.

I'm emerging out of it so much stronger.

I'm not scared today- the sky doesn't seem too high.

Now I'll spread my own beautiful wings, like a butterfly.

Bridge

I'll fly so far away from you, you can't catch me.

I know you won't even try to- I'm not what you wanted.

Well, that's fine, because you're not what I need,

Glad you burned down your illusion, now I'm undaunted.

Chorus

So, thank you, the pain molded me.

Living undercover, now I'm breaking free.

I won't hide in my cocoon any longer.

I'm emerging out of it so much stronger.

I'm not scared today- the sky doesn't seem too high.

Now I'll spread my own beautiful wings, like a butterfly.

Watch me fly.
