lyrics

Why was fixing myself always the goal?
Because I thought I could be nothing else
without you making me whole

Therein lies the problem I was just your little puppet
you had me where you wanted because you were all I wanted

My body was a marionette
with some sturdy strings you held
when you cut me
when you cut me off
I barely even knew myself

I was too small to hold what I felt
I swallowed the sound
is that why my insides they all turn to hell
when you're around?

Therein lies the problem I was just your little puppet
you had me where you wanted because you were all I wanted

My body was a marionette
with some sturdy strings you held
when you cut me
when you cut me off
I barely even knew myself

I had to learn to love myself
