Not Nothing

No one ever made me feel as small as you did
No one made me feel as cursed
I’d lie awake in bed just staring at the ceiling
Wondering if things would get worse

I was trapped under your thumb
Believing when you called it love

But I will forgive myself
And start to let it go
Accept that who you chose to be
Was out of my control
And though it might be hard
To begin again
I’ll write myself a brand new story
With a happy end
I survived
So tonight
I am taking back my life
And I’ll show you
That I am not nothing

I kept my head above the water
‘Til the moment when all the elements aligned
And I could fly away to heal my broken spirit
And leave my demons far behind
You always said that I was weak
But the bravest thing I did was leave

So I will forgive myself
And start to let it go
Accept that who you chose to be
Was out of my control
And though it might be hard
To begin again
I’ll write myself a brand new story
With a happy end
I survived
So tonight
I am taking back my life
And I’ll show you
That I am not nothing

Looking up at the sky
I think I see the start of a sunrise

And I will forgive myself
And start to let it go
Accept that who you chose to be
Was out of my control
And though it might be hard
To begin again
I’ll write myself a brand new story
With a happy end
I survived
So tonight
I am taking back my life
And I’ll show you
That I am not nothing
I’ll show you
That I am not nothing
