Verse 1

If you can just be gone in the blink of an eye,

That means you were never here, it was all a lie.

That makes me angry, that makes me ache,

I never thought you and I could break.

But I guess we never were one in the first place.

That's why you could leave, you had nothing to erase.

Pre Chorus

Well, I don't know what the future holds,

But growing up, I've always been told,

That women have the power of the earth,

We can take on anything, you can't break my heart.

Chorus

And tonight I decided to lift the burden off my chest,

Hold it in my hands and just throw it away.

And tonight I decided to give the what ifs a rest,

I can feel it in my heart, I'm gonna be okay.

Verse 2

Time heals, they say, but I think it's just perception.

And I've had a change in it, thanks for the lesson.

I'd tell myself to watch out next time,

But I'm done now with wedding bell chimes.

Yesterday I was lost, now I see open doors.

Without you holding me back, I'll be so much more!

Pre Chorus

Well, I don't know what the future holds,

But growing up, I've always been told,

That women have the power of the earth,

We can take on anything, you can't break my heart.

Chorus

And tonight I decided to lift the burden off my chest,

Hold it in my hands and just throw it away.

And tonight I decided to give the what ifs a rest,

I can feel it in my heart, I'm gonna be okay.

Bridge

Yeah, I don't know what the future holds,

But pleading to you is getting old,

When you've made up your mind to be cold,

There's nothing I can do, but just grow bold.

Chorus

So tonight I decided to lift the burden off my chest,

Hold it in my hands and just throw it away.

So tonight I decided to give the what ifs a rest,

I can feel it in my heart, I'm gonna be okay.

Chorus

And tonight I decided to lift the burden off my chest,

Hold it in my hands and just throw it away.

And tonight I decided to give the what ifs a rest,

I can feel it in my heart, I'm gonna be okay.
