Who do you think you are?



I currently have this song is on repeat. I've had it downloaded for months but it wasn't until after a friend brought one of the lyrics up last night that I carefully listened to the words of the whole song. After spending eight years going back and forth with my ex-fiancé, this pretty much sums everything up in one neat, bow-wrapped package:

I can't take one more step towards you
Cause all that's waiting is regret
And don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
You lost the love
I loved the most

I learned to live, half a life
And now you want me one more time

Who do you think you are
Runnin' round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are

I hear you're asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

I learned to live, half a life
And now you want me one more time

{chorus}

It took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
Cause you broke all your promises

And now you're back
You don't get to get me back

Who do you think you are
Runnin' round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are?

My favorite part is "you're gonna catch a cold from the ice inside your soul"... a bit brutal, but that's how I'm rolling on this Tuesday morning. How's that for a dose of honesty before noon? ;)

My favorite part is "But I have grown too strong to ever fall back in your arms" Scars fade, wisdom remains. Life is too short to tolerate subliminal destruction, choose only what nurtures you. Stronger, wiser, and moving on!
