Sick of all the games
This story's getting old
It's time for a change
I'm gonna take control
I'm not an object or possession
You played with the wrong girl
And you don't own me anymore

The game of love is overrated
It's not real, I'm tired of playing

You can try to pull me in with promises
You don't intend to keep
You can try to put the pressure on
But baby, I'm not that naive
You can try to break me, try to hurt me
Till the walls fall all around me
But you can never make me feel unloved
'Cause you're not the one

I am stronger than you know
I'm smarter than you think
Not made of stone
But I stand on my own feet
I'm not your mother or your keeper
I'm not your average girl
'Cause I know what I'm living for

You can try to pull me in with promises
You don't intend to keep
You can try to put the pressure on
But baby, I'm not that naive
You can try to break me, try to hurt me
Till the sky falls all around me
But you can never make me feel unloved
'Cause you're not the one

You can try to break me, try to hurt me
Till the sky falls all around me
Now I know what I'm living for
You can try to break me, try to hurt me
Till the sky falls all around me
You're not the one, you're not the one
