Anymore;

When she was younger
Stood staring at the door
Waiting for the day that she knew would surely come
Tied bows in her hair
Dressed as she thought you'd like
But as time ticked away
Promises fade one by one

And now she's all grown
Made it through on her own
Now strong enough to see
That you've been where you want to be

No longer dying inside
I will not let you define
Everything I am by one thing that I don't have
Cause I'm more than that
I will not be made to hide
These tears won't fall for you this time
I will not be ashamed
Of my name
Anymore

Sometimes she wonders
Imagines what you're like
The emptiness inside that made you miss her life
The ocean's widen
With all your silence
Leaves the daydreams behind
Childish fantisies unwind

And now she knows
You're not coming home
Take the bows from her hair
She's been waiting twenty years

No longer dying inside
I will not let you define
Everything I am by one thing that I don't have
Cause I'm more than that
I will not be made to hide
These tears won't fall for you this time
I will not be ashamed
Of my name
Anymore

No longer dying inside
I will not let you define
Everything I am by one thing that I don't have
Cause I'm more than that
I will not be made to hide
These tears won't fall for you this time
I will not be ashamed
Of my name
Anymore

I will not
I will not
I will not
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore
I will not
Anymore

    here are the actual lyrics;

    When she was younger
    Stood starring out the door
    Waiting for the day that she knew would surely come
    Tied bows in her hair
    Dressed as she thought you'd like
    But as time ticked away
    Promises fade one by one

    And now she's all grown
    Made it through on her own
    Now strong enough to see
    That you've been where you wanna be...

    (CHORUS)
    No longer dying inside
    I will not let you define
    Everything I am by the one thing that I don't have
    Cause I'm more than that
    I will not be made to hide
    These tears won't fall for you this time
    I will not be ashamed
    Of my name
    Anymore...

    (Verse)
    Sometimes she wonders
    Imagines what your like
    An emptiness inside
    That made you her miss her life
    and oceans widen
    with all your silence
    Leaves the daydreams behind
    Childish fantasies unwind

    And now she knows
    Your not coming home
    Take the bows from her hair
    Cause she's been waiting 20 yrs...

    (CHORUS)
    No longer dying inside
    I will not let you define
    Everything I am by the one thing that I don't have
    Cause I'm more than that
    I will not be made to hide
    These tears won't fall for you this time
    I will not be ashamed
    Of my name
    Anymore...

    Anymore, anymore
    Anymore...
