Stronger Than Ever
by Christina Aguilera



What you gave me I know you gave me
You remind me all the time
And how you hurt me and you don't see it
Again I am the child

And though you tell me that you love me
I can't feel it and I'm afraid to let you down
It's all or nothing, I fear that something's wrong

I'm tired of walking on eggshells so terrified to fail
And in order to please you I've abandoned myself
And though it used to hurt me when you push me away
I'm stronger than ever, you made me this way

How I wish you, you suffered less too
It tears us both apart
And it's not pretty the way you criticize me
And how it breaks my heart

And though you tell me (though you tell me)
That you love me (that you love me)
I can't feel it (I can't feel it)
And I'm afraid to let you down
It's all or nothing, (it's all or nothing)
I fear that something's wrong

I'm tired of walking on eggshells so terrified to fail
And in order to please you I've abandoned myself
And though it used to hurt me when you push me away
I'm stronger than ever, you made me this way

How I wish you knew, how much I need you
I feel like running but I can't abandon you
You avoid my gaze, withdraw from me these days
You punish me for trying to be all that you wanted
What more can I do?

I'm tired of walking on eggshells so terrified to fail
(So tired of walking on, don't want to fail)
And in order to please you I've abandoned myself
And though it used to hurt me when you push me away
I'm stronger than ever, you made me this way

I'm tired of walking on eggshells so terrified to fail
And in order to please you I've abandoned myself
(In order to please you, I've abandoned myself)
And though it used to hurt me when you push me away
I'm stronger than ever, you made me this way, oh
