They Said

They said that you were perfect
They said nothing would go wrong
They said you couldn’t hurt me
They said I was too strong
They said a lot of things
That I held on to so tight
They said a lot of things
That I found were just not right
They said that you were different
That you couldn’t break my heart
They said I could believe them
And that really wasn’t smart
So after I was broken
And after you were gone
I found that more than just you leaving
Could go so very wrong
So I finally broke the pattern
And started being me
I saw what I had been missing
The sense of being free
So now I listen to myself
Don’t let “them” lead my life
I found that on my own
I can make things right
