[chorus]

This is a dangerous game that you play;

You don’t know just what you say;

You’re a master with words;

But don’t you know I’m self-assured?

You think your words hurt like knives;

But here is something you don’t realize;

My skin is made of stone;

And my heart is my own.

 

I may be just a girl;

But I can change this world;

If you think you can outwit me;

You won’t, I guarantee.

You’re putting your dignity on the line;

I promise you victory will be mine;

You think you can trick me with your words;

But don’t you know that’s absurd?

 

[chorus]

 

I may be just a girl;

But I will change this world;

You said you like to dance with fire;

But you’ve always been a liar.

I’m a tempest that will never slow;

I’m someone you will never know;

You can’t handle me;

Even in your wildest dreams.

 

[chorus]

 

I may be just a girl

But I will devastate your world;

You spin your web of lies;

But you can never look into my eyes.

If you think your words cut like knives;

Then my words destroy lives;

You can’t beat me at my own game;

Now you’ll never forget my name.

This is absolutely amazing! It's so down to earth and honest, and, being a singer, I notice so many people lack this skill. Well done!

@Peripatetic260 Thank you very much, that means a lot! I have considered songwriting as a career, maybe as more of a supplement to being a teacher. But anyway, thanks a lot!

Don't play normal, play exceptionally.

Singing is kinda my thing so I was singing it and could just see how it would sound... Some day I might ask you to write me a song to sing!
