thank you lyrics – jamelia

[verse 1:]
the fights, those nights
i tried to pretend it don’t hurt
the way, i prayed
someday that you would love me
really, completely
just how i wanted it to be
but no, so wrong
can’t believe i stayed with you so long

[b-chorus:]
you hit, you spit, you split, ever-y bit of me, yeah
you stole, you broke, you’re cold
you’re such a joke to me, yeah

[chorus:]
for every last bruise you gave me
for every time i sat in tears
for the million ways you hurt me
i just wanna tell you this
you broke my world, made me strong
thank you
messed up my dreams, made me strong
thank you

[verse 2:]
my head, near dead
just the way you wanted it
my soul, stone cold
cos i was under you’re control
so young, so dumb
knew just how to make me succ*mb
but i understand
to make yourself feel like a man

[b-chorus:]
you hit, you spit, you split, ever-y bit of me, yeah
you stole, you broke, you’re cold
you’re such a joke to me, yeah

[chorus:]
for every last bruise you gave me
for every time i sat in tears
for the million ways you hurt me
i just wanna tell you this
you broke my world, made me strong
thank you
messed up my dreams, made me strong
thank you

[middle eight:]
you coulda had it all babe
it coulda been so right
i woulda given you everything
morning through night
yeah, you taught me some lessons
those are my blessings
that won’t happen again
thank you

[chorus till end]
