I had a dream I got everything I wanted Not what you'd think And if I'm bein' honest It might've been a nightmare To anyone who might care. And you say: As long as I'm here, no one can hurt you Don't wanna lie here, but you can learn to If I could change the way that you see yourself You wouldn't wonder why you hear: They don't deserve you. I tried to scream But my head was underwater They called me weak Like I'm not just somebody's daughter It coulda been a nightmare But it felt like they were right there. And it feels like yesterday was a year ago But I don't wanna let anybody know 'Cause everybody wants something from me now And I don't wanna let 'em down. If I knew it all then, would I do it again? Would I do it again? If they knew what they said would go straight to my head What would they say instead? Em alta:. Compartilhar no Facebook Compartilhar no Twitter.
