i'm trying, i swear to god i'm trying
but all i get from you are looks that tell me i'm no good
you're lying, to my face you're lying
you turn around and put me down with all your words

i swear to myself every night
your remarks won't phase me
i'll pull your knife from my back
until you realize you can't break me
i'll hold my head up high
i know i'll try to do my best
to laugh it off one more time
i'm going to be all right
