Stronger Than I Was
Lyrics Eminem

[Verse 1]
You used to say that I'd never be
Nothing without you and I believe
I'm striding the roads, I guess I can't breathe
Just lay here with me, baby, hold me please
And I beg and I plead, drop to knees
And I cry and I'd scream, baby, please don't leave
Snatch the keys from your hand, I would squeeze
And you'd laugh, and you'd tease, you're just f*cking with me
And you must hate me
Why do you date me if you say I make you sick?
And you've had enough of me
I smother you, I'm 'bout to jump off the edge

But you won't break me, you'll just make me stronger than I was
Before I met you, I bet you I'll be just fine without you
And if I stumble, I won't crumble, I'll get back up and uhh
And I'ma still be humble when I scream "F*ck you!"
Cause I'm stronger than I was

[Verse 2]
A beautiful face is all that you had
Cause on the inside you're ugly and mad
But you're all that I love, aggressed, you can't leave
Please stay here with me, baby, hold me please
And I'd beg and I plead, drop to knees
And I'd cry and I'd scream, baby, please don't leave
Cause you left and you took everything I had left
And left nothing, nothing for me
So please don't wake me from this dream, baby
We're still together in my head
And you're still in love with me
'Til I woke up to discover that that dream was dead


[Verse 3]
You walked out, I almost died, it was almost a homicide
That you caused cause I was so traumatized
Felt like I was in for a long bus ride
I'd rather die than you not be by my side
Can't count how many times I vomited, cried
Go to my room, turn the radio on and hide
Uh, we were Bonnie and Clyde
No, on the inside you were Jekyll and Hyde
I, felt like my whole relationship with you was a lie
It was you and I, why did I think it was ride or die?
Cause if you could've, took my life, you would've
It's like you put a knife to my chest and pushed it right
Through to the, other side of my back and stuck a spike, too
Should've, put up more of a fight, but I couldn't
At the time, no one could hurt me like you could've
Take you back now, what's the likelihood of that?
Bite me, b*tch, chewing on a nineteen footer
Cause this morning I finally stood up
Held my chin up, finally showed a sign
Of life in me for the, first time since you left me
And left me with nothing but shattered dreams
And a life we could've, had and we could've been
But I'm breaking out of this slump I'm in
Pulling myself out of the dumps once again
I'm getting up once and for all, f*ck this sh*t
I'ma be late for the pity party
But you're never gonna beat me to the f*cking punch again
Took it on the chin like a champ
So don't lump me in with the chump-ions
I'm done being your punching bag, it was the November 31st today
Would've been our anniversary, two years, but you left on the 1st of May
I wrote it on the calender, was gonna call, but couldn't think of the words to say
But it came to me just now, so I put 'em in a verse to lay
And I thank you cause you made me a better person than I was
But I hate you cause you drained me, I gave you all, you gave me none
But if you blame me, you're crazy and after all that's said and done
I'm still angry, yeah, I maybe, I may never trust someone
