Change Me 

All I know of life is what I’ve seen,
What I’ve heard, what I tried to be

But that’s not me

All I know of time is what you’ve shown me, 

What they told me, and what I tried to see

But I can’t see clearly today

I can’t see clearly today

 

So why don’t you ever try 

To change me, to change me 

Why don’t you ever try 

To change me, to change me 

 

All I know of who you are is what you’ve said, 

What you’ve done, who you’ve proven to be

and that’s how I’d like to be

But all I know of who I am is what I’ve said, 

What I’ve done, and who I’ve failed to be 

Cus that’s all that I can see today

That’s all that I can see today 

 

So why don’t you ever try 

To change me, to change me 

Why don’t you ever try 

To change me, to change me 

 

Instead you call me beautiful

But I just don’t feel beautiful

No I just don’t feel beautiful

Not today

 

So why don’t you ever try 

To change me, to change me 

Why don’t you ever try 

To change me, to change me 

Only Want Me

You say words like I have never heard before

Those lips that charmed so many ones before 

My eyes, they tell me, you're the one I need

Inside I know you're not for me

You, oh you, you tell me 

You only want me, only want me

What am I to do (with you)

When you tell me

You only want me, only want me

Know that I want you (I want you, I want you, I want you)

You stare with those eyes that never look away

Until you've found another one to chase

All those sweet nothings whispered in her ear

And still you say just what I wanna hear

You, oh you, you tell me 

You only want me, only want me

What am I to do (with you)

When you tell me

You only want me, only want me

Know that I want you

(I want you, I want you, And now you say you want me too)

And I try to say what's on my mind
When you say you want me too

But I've seen through all those charming lines

And I'm not falling for you

When you tell me

You only want me, only want me

What am I to do with you

When you tell me 

You only want me, only want me

Know that I want you 

Can't Break Me

I grew up thinking you had all of me

I let your claws around my heart

I gave you every single piece of me

Until I found out who I was

 

One by one you filled me with your lies

One by one you left me here to die

 

You gave me nothing, taking everything

You filled me with your fear and shame

You told me you were all I’d ever need

You didn’t know who I was

 

One by one you filled me with your lies

One by one you left me here to die

 

But you can’t break me,
You can’t break me now, now 

Oh you can’t shake me,
You can’t knock me down, down

 

You walk around like you have everything you need

You walk around like you are everything to me (to me, to me)

You walk around like you have everything you need 

But you don’t have me, you don’t have me, you don’t have me

 

You can’t break me,
You can’t break me now, now 

You can’t shake me, 

You can’t knock me down, down

 

I am stronger now than I’ve ever been 

I am stronger now than I’ve ever been

I am stronger now than I’ve ever been

Than I’ve ever been

 

Oh I am stronger now than I’ve ever been 

I am stronger now than I’ve ever been

I am stronger now than I’ve ever been

Than I’ve ever been

 

You can’t break me, 

You can’t break me now, now 

You can’t shake me, 

You can’t knock me down, down
