Water for Elephants

I have new rules
I'm not breaking down
I'm staying true
to who I really am
I won't go against my conscience
You tell me no one will love me like you
and I hope you're right
I want to fulfill my dreams with you
You say I'm the best thing
to happen to you
but I'm not getting destroyed again
When I'm with others
I find myself crying inside
Talking and telling stories about you
We can make this right
but you weren't the only one 
that was wronged
I'm more than just your star attraction
