Verse 1

The future I had once planned is up in flames.

A part of me died, I'll never be the same.

I was overwhelmed by all the pain and shame.

You left me all alone to take all the blame.

Pre-chorus

And I stood there, I took your fall.

Yes, I stood there, taking it all.

But this won't break me because

That's my call.

Chorus

And perhaps you think this is the end of me,

When you see how my world's caught up in this wild tempest.

But I've never been more at peace with myself,

I lived through my greatest fear to be at my strongest.

Verse 2

Now you can't hurt me again, you've walked away.

Don't care that you won't hear what you had to say.

See, I'm surviving just fine through my worst days.

No, I don't need a breath-mint or an ash-tray.

Pre-chorus

And I'll stand here, no, I won't fall.

Yes, I'll stand here, taking it all.

But this won't break me because

That's my call.

Chorus

And perhaps you think this is the end of me,

When you see how my world's caught up in this wild tempest.

But I've never been more at peace with myself,

I lived through my greatest fear to be at my strongest.

Bridge

Stronger than the promises you made,

The ones that were so easy to break.

Stronger than a light that never fades,

Stronger than all my heart-ache.

Chorus

And perhaps you think this is the end of me,

When you see how my world's caught up in this wild tempest.

But I've never been more at peace with myself,

I lived through my greatest fear to be at my strongest.
