Clay Aiken - I Survived You Lyrics

I see the picture clear now
And the fog has lifted
The wool you tried to pull over my eyes was clever
Yeah, you're gifted
But you forgot to dot some i's and cross some t's along the way
I'm better now despite you baby
I'm stronger these days, stronger

I survived the crash, survived the burn
Survived the worst, yeah baby but I learned
Survived the lies, survived the blues
Almost killed me but I survived the truth
And when you wrote me off like I was doomed,
I survived you

I can look in the mirror now
It's been a slow awakening
Haunted by a heart full of you
I couldn't help mistaking
That you could ever care for anyone
Anyone but yourself, hey-yeah
But you would have to have a conscience baby,
Good luck, I wish you well

I survived the crash, survived the burn
Survived the worst, yeah baby but I learned
Survived the lies, survived the blues
Almost killed me but I survived the truth
And when you wrote me off like I was doomed,
I survived you

This hearts been torn in two
Cut and bruised from too many bitter endings
I'll be damned if I have thoughts of you
Rain on my new beginning
