I Built a City

(Verse 1)

You sit in your room 

Covered in blankets

A pillow to your face

Masking your cries

The tears raining down

The choked sobs stoppep

You tell yourself it's lies

What they said isn't true

Your heart disagrees

For the truth 

Shines in their words

 

(Chorus)

I spend countless hours

Learning to love me

To respect myself

Then you showed up

With a few words

You bring the city down

A few whispers and I'm out

I built a city

For you to destroy

 

(Verse 2)

You go through your day

Not trusting your mood

Your thoughts stuck on their words

Truth or lie?

Your mind can't decide

The words got sting

You can't shake the feeling

That they might be true

So you cower

Tears in your eyes

 

(Bridge)

You can't block the sounds

You can't forget

Your mind keeps spinning

Arund those words

That hold great weight

You are so scared

That they might be true

You are alone

In this darkness

So you do one thing 

To dull the pain

You let your tears fall

 

(Chorus)

I spent countless hours
Learning to love me
To respect myself
Then you showed up
With a few words
You bring the city down
A few whispers and I'm out
I built a city
For you to destroy
