Every Time I even think of you, all those bad memories just fade away, 'cause your smile's enough, you're enough...

I can take a lot,

to being called fat, dumb and ugly

To being told that I am worthless

That my parents must've been druggies

I can take a lot,

From the hurtful words to the bakward truths

The silent mocks and broken stares

To the lying friends, who didn't seem rude


I cant take a lot,

From getting pushed around

to being called a waste of space

to the stinging feeling

From being told Im a mistake


I can take a lot,

From being told that there's no point

to the flat tone of life

where ther's no choice


But one thing I wont take, 

Is being told that i'm not enough

Because, that will never be true,

because, all I need Is my own love


I wont take

Being called a pointless soul

Because in this world I have my life planned

In this world, I'm going for gold
