lyrics

Just when I was tryna fix thing
I seem to burst at the seams
And I swear that it’s not what it seems
I just lose myself constantly.
It’s the fall of the great
The one who always seemed so great
She’d never slip and make a mistake
She was so sure she knew her fate

I’ve been
Strong for too long
And now Mama said that she want me gone
I’m too strong
Strong for too long
And now Mama said she want me out the home
I’m too strong

It’s my fault I messed up,
I put you through hell I’m not enough
Singing, I’m the failure
But you didn’t need me to tell you
The dumb, the reckless, the bad
The one you wish you’d never even had
And I know I’m always mad at dad
But does it make it okay for me to be sad?

I’ve been
Strong for too long
And now Mama said that she want me gone
I’m too strong
Strong for too long
And now Mama said she want me out the home
I’m too strong

While everyone’s walking around
And they found their way to make their parents proud
I just hang my head to the ground.
Never worth that much to them
They could never raise the perfect children
Well, child cuz’ I cant live up to you either
The reason that my standards are way off of the meter
In a family of finance can’t pretend that I am fine
Success, love and smarts
No place for forbidden arts
You say
“why do it for me?”
You’re right
I swear that I don’t do it from spite
But can’t pretend that it’s all right
If all we ever do is fight
Black sheep of the family
Goes by the name of That Is Me
And, I swear that this is it
Cuz’ I can’t take just one more hit
To the face and knock me down
But I fall without a sound
Sorry, I let you down
Sorry, I joke around
And I know that you think that it’s wrong
But you see I’ve been strong
For way too long


Strong for too long
And now Mama said that she want me gone
I’m too strong
Strong for too long
And now Mama said she want me out the home
I’m too strong

Strong for too long
