Here comes the night
No more living in the shadow of your love
This is my life
You always tried so hard to keep me down
But now I'll rise above
Those empty lies
Stop pretending that my accusations
Take you by surprise
I've realized
Now I'm ending all the secrecy
I see through your disguise
All the dreams we planned
I believed so I held on
I understand
So when the morning comes
You know that I'll be gone

You don't think that I'll be strong enough
I won't be a prisoner of your love

No longer blind
I can focus on deception
Used to keep me by your side
I read your mind
Don't believe it's all a mystery
There's nothing you can hide
It's all defined
There's nothing you can tell me now
To change the way I feel inside
All the dreams we planned
I believed so I held on
I understand
So when the morning comes
You know that I'll be gone

You don't think that I'll be strong enough
I won't be prisoner of your love
I'm just not the girl you thought I was
I won't be a prisoner of your love
