    not again
    not when i look in the mirror and like who i see
    not when my skin is smooth
    not when my hair is short
    not when my eyes are clear

    no, not again
    not again will i let you hurt me
    not again will i let you abuse me emotionally
    not again will i let you take my heart
    smash it onto the ground
    and watch me while i bleed

    nuh-uh
    not again
    a sister learned a little something this last time
    and my heart can be like steel when it needs to be
    hear those doors slamming?
    hear that lock clicking?
    that's me up against you
    and the things you do

    cause no, i have been there
    visited the land of crazy
    that's no place ANYBODY should be
    for ANY length of time
    and i felt my big toe get wet
    but right now my foot is dry

    there is not a single tear in my eye
    cause i look in the mirror and like who i see
    i can't help it if you don't
    but i sure can stop you from hurting me
    again
    not again
    not when my skin is smooth
    not when my eyes are clear
    not when i love myself
