This sums up being in an abusive relationship and finding the strength to escape, survive and thrive.

Where’s my heart?
Has it been here all along?
You had me convinced
Everything I wanted was wrong

I should thank you for something
You never knew you gave me at all
It was you made me realize
That I could jump but I couldn’t fall

I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong

I believed I could never be alone
The thought of you leaving chilled me right to the bone
When you started to hurt me, I almost didn’t care
I’d take what I had to
As long as you’d always be there

I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong

I had no faith in myself, I thought I was weak
I couldn’t stand up and shout, you know I couldn’t even speak
It was easy for you to take my power an dmy pride
If you took anymore there’d be nothing left inside

Here I am
I landed on my feet
I know it was you
Who made my life incomplete

It must be your doing
I feel so alive
When you tried to destroy me
What else could I do but survive?

I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong

I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong without you
I never thought I could be strong
I never thought I could be strong
I never thought I could be strong
Where’s my heart?
