LyricsEdit

Watch me as I’m getting up
See me shaking off the dust
'Cause I'm starting again
Didn't think that I could
Didn't think so, did you
Cover up the scars of love
I dry my tears, I've cried enough
And I know as it ends
That I wouldn't undo
Anything we’ve been through

'Cause I see
To fly you need to fall
And I have won the war
The battles that were lost, now don't matter
I won't blame the world
'Cause everytime it hurt
When I went through the worst
I came up better

Better

I came up better

Watch me as I’m letting go
Everything I used to know
And I'll never look back
Didn't think that I could
Didn't think so, did you
Memories stuck on repeat
Stopping as I set them free
And I know as it ends
That I wouldn’t undo
Anything we’be been through

'Cause I see
To fly you need to fall
And I have won the war
The battles that were lost, now don't matter
I won't blame the world
'Cause everytime it hurt
When I went through the worst
I came up better

Better

I came up better

I came up better
