You swept me off my feet
You erased my history
You took all of me
And filled it up with you

You’re a bully
You’re just a bully
 
I was scared you’d leave me
I was afraid you’d kill me
I tied myself in knots
because I knew what you could do
 
You’re a bully
You’re just a bully
 
When I​ walk​ in town
I keep my ​sh​ head down
I wear a ​mask
To c​o​ver my bruises
I​ d​o what I can
to ​keep​ the peace
I ​am​ too ​strong​ to be broken
 
You were weak one time
You were in bed with the flu
I loved you then
Cause you were really you
 
You’re a baby
You’re just a baby
 
You were so afraid
That people would think you were weak
So all you ever did was
Push them around,
And beat them down
 
You’re a baby
You’re just a baby
 
When I​ walk​ in town
I keep my head down
I wear a ​mask
To c​o​ver my bruises
I​ d​o what I can
to ​keep​ the peace
I ​am​ too ​strong​ to be broken
 
You broke down the door
That set me free
I always thought you were strong
But I was wrong that is me
I don’t need your strength
I’ve got my own
 
And you’re a bully
You’re just a bully
