You can take your words and throw them away
I've come to learn to ignore what you say
All they do is criticize and make me feel like
I am nothing

You can search me for the tears
But you should know they were never here
I didn't cry and crumble at your lie
That said I was nothing

I built these walls to protect my heart
And nothing you say or do will make them fall apart

I'm not going to breakdown
I'm not giving up
I'll prove you wrong when you say
I'm not strong enough
I will go the distance
I'll make it to the top
I will keep moving on
Even when you say I should stop

You can tell your stories but just know
That I will not let my emotions show
I will not fight because you know I'm right
I am not nothing

You can act like you know everything about me
But there's a side that I'll never let you see
If you ever find it, you'll have to admit
I am not nothing

I built these walls to surround my heart
And nothing you say or do will make them fall apart

I'm not going to breakdown
I'm not giving up
I'll prove you wrong when you say
I'm not strong enough
I will go the distance
I'll make it to the top
I will keep moving on
Even when you say I should stop

You don't know what I'm capable of
You don't know who I am
You don't realize what words can do
You'll just never understand
No, you never will

If you burn me, I'll rise from the ashes
If you cut me, I'll never bleed
If you chase me, I'll be out of your reach
Because you're words as harsh as they seem
Will never make a mark on me

It's best if you give up now
Because you will never tear me down

I'm not going to breakdown
I'm not giving up
I'll prove you wrong when you say
I'm not strong enough
I will go the distance
I'll make it to the top
I will keep moving on
Even when you say I should stop

I will never stop
