"Gradually" as written by and Rosie Thomas....
Gradually I will get wiser
I will get stronger
I will be bolder
I will not settle
I will flirt back
I will stand up or
I will sit back

All this time you thought I was
Weak when I was just pretending
I was just pretending
All this time you made me believe that
I should be sorry
I should be sorry

Gradually
I will outrun you
I will outgrow you
I will ignore you
I will see clearer
I'll overcome you
I will acknowledge how far I have come

All this time you thought I was weak
When I was just pretending
I was just pretending
All this time you made me believe that
I should be sorry
You should be sorry for making me fall

Gradually
I will get older
I will get wiser
I will move slower
I will see clearer
I'll over come
I will acknowledge

How far I have come
All this time you thought I was weak
When I just pretending
I was just pretending
All this time you made me believe that
I should be sorry
You should be sorry for making me fall

    My InterpretationWonderful wonderful - simple yet strong lyrics.

    In general it could be about being in a abusive relationship with someone telling you you're wrong, bad, small etc...Or it's your abusive parents that've told you 'should be sorry'...

    For me personally I'd say it's about the relationship with abusive parents that have ruined the child I was. In the end I will stand above them and learn more and grow stronger. This song fits this feeling very well and I think it's beautiful.
