After all you put me through
You'd think I'd despise you
But in the end I wanna thank you
'Cause you made me that much stronger

Well I, thought I knew you
Thinking, that you were true
Guess I, I couldn't trust
Called your bluff, time is up
'Cause I've had enough
You were, there by my side
Always, down for the ride
But your, joy ride just came down in flames
'Cause your greed sold me out of shame, mmhmm

After all of the stealing and cheating
You probably think that I hold resentment for you
But, uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do
I wouldn't know just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you, cause it...

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Oh, Oh, Oh, Whoa, Ohhh

Never, saw it coming
All of, your backstabbing
Just so, you could cash in
On a good thing before I realized your game
I heard, you're going around
Playing, the victim now
But don't, even begin
Feeling I'm the one to blame
'Cause you dug your own grave, uh huh

After all of the fights and the lies cause you're wanted to haunt me
But that won't work anymore
Uh, no more, oh no, it's over
'Cause if it wasn't for all of your torture
I wouldn't know how to be this way now, and never back down
So I wanna say thank you

'Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
Makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
It makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust, so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you'll see
You won't stop me

I am a fighter and I
I ain't goin' stop
There is no turning back
I've had enough

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Thought I would forget
But I, I remember
Coz I'll remember, I'll remember

Thought I would forget
But I, I remember
Coz I'll remember, I'll remember

'Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

    i really love this song...
    in my life i've experienced a lot of sufferings, as in literally and figuratively tortured by other people...
    but those people who are hurting me are my inspirations to step up...
    the more they step on me, the more i struggle to be on top...
    i am god-fearing but i know how to defend myself as well...
    i could say that I AM A FIGHTER and i won't let anyone step on me...
    thanks for all the sufferings that i've been through and going through as of the moment, because without those, i won't be a step closer to god, and i won't be a step closer to myself, and to my special someone...
    it is true that everything around us, whether it's bad or good is still a favor from god... HE allows pain and suffering so that we could learn, and so that we could move up, and be a better person who is worthy of his name...

    this song is really inspiring
    and this song made me learn a little bit faster
    Made my skin a little bit thicker Makes me that much smarter
    thanks for everything that/who made a FIGHTER

    yeah!

    Christina Aguilera is a talented, and I mean talented singer!!! She can wake anybody up with her loud voice, but also make it small when you wanna relax...This is why her name is up in the spotlight!!! GREAT SONG!!! :)
