If you're trying to hurt me
If you're trying to get back at me
it's working
If you're trying to cripple me
If you're trying to immobilize me
it's working 

I'm just trying to keep my head above water
Every time I think I've made progress
You bring me right back down again
and show me how weak I am for you
Which started all this trouble in the first place

Stop dwelling
This is the time to get better
There's no time to fix it together
it's all on our own
or it doesn't look like I'm coming back at all

You don't want this to be
a permanent handicap
because I won't be your crutch
or to catch you when you fall
the choice is yours
