Stronger Than I Was

Lyricist: Luis Edgardo Resto / Marshall B. Iii Mathers    Composer: Luis Edgardo Resto / Marshall B. Iii Mathers

​You used to say that I'd never be nothing without you
​And I believe I'm striding the roads, I guess I can't breathe
​Just lay here with me, baby, hold me please
​And I beg and I plead, drop to knees
​And I cry and I'd scream, baby, please don't leave
​Snatch the keys from your hand
​I would squeeze and you'd laugh
​And you'd tease, you're just fucking with me
​And you must hate me
​Why do you date me if you say I make you sick?
​And you've had enough of me
​I smother you, I'm 'bout to jump off the edge
​But you won't break me
​You'll just make me stronger than I was
​Before I met you, I bet you I'll be just fine without you
​And if I stumble, I won't crumble
​I'll get back up and uhhh
​And I'mma still be humble when I scream fuck you
​'Cause I'm stronger than I was
​A beautiful face is all that you had
​'Cause on the inside you're ugly, man
​But you're all that I love
​Aggressed, you can't leave
​Please stay here with me, baby, hold me please
​And I'd beg and I plead, drop to knees
​And I'd cry and I'd scream, baby, please don't leave
​'Cause you left and you took everything I had left
​And left nothing, nothing for me
​So please don't wake me from this dream, baby
​We're still together in my head
​And you're still in love with me
​Till I woke up to discover that that dream was dead
​But you won't break me
​You'll just make me stronger than I was
​Before I met you, I bet you I'll be just fine without you
​And if I stumble, I won't crumble
​I'll get back up and uhhh
​And I'mma still be humble when I scream fuck you
​'Cause I'm stronger than I was
​You walked out, I almost died
​It was almost a homicide that you caused cause I was so traumatized
​Felt like I was in for a long bus ride
​I'd rather die than you not be by my side
​Can't count how many times I vomited, cried
​Go to my room, turn the radio on and hide, uh
​We were Bonnie and Clyde
​No, on the inside you were Jekyll and Hyde I
​Felt like my whole relationship with you was a lie
​It was you and I, why did I think it was ride or die?
​'Cause if you could've took my life you would've
​It's like you put a knife to my chest and pushed it right through to the
​Other side of my pack and stuck a spike, too, should've
​Put up more of a fight, but I couldn't at the time
​No one could hurt me like you could've
​Take you back now, what's the likelihood of that?
​Bite me, bitch, chewing on a nineteen footer
​'Cause this morning I finally stood up
​Held my chin up, finally showed a sign of life in me for the
​First time since you left me and left me with nothing but shattered dreams
​And a life we could've had and we could've been
​But I'm breaking out of this slump I'm in
​Pulling myself out of the dumps once again
​I'm getting up once and for all, fuck this shit
​I'mma be late for the pity party
​But you're never gonna beat me to the fucking punch again
​Took it on the chin like a champ so don't lump me in with the chumpy ends
​I'm done being your punching bag
​It was the November 31st today, would've been our anniversary
​Two years, but you left on the first of May
​I wrote it on the calender, was gonna call, but couldn't think of the words to say
​But it came to me just now, so I put 'em in a verse to lay
​And I thank you cause you made me a better person than I was
​But I hate you cause you drained me
​I gave you all, you gave me none
​But if you blame me, you're crazy
​And after all that's said and done
​I'm still angry, yeah, I maybe
​I may never trust someone
​But you won't break me
​You'll just make me stronger than I was
​Before I met you, I bet you I'll be just fine without you
​And if I stumble, I won't crumble
​I'll get back up and uhhh
​And I'mma still be humble when I scream fuck you
​'Cause I'm stronger than I was
