My whole world burned down like matches
But now the phoenix rises out of the ashes
And I'm leaving behind a trail of dust
In front of all the people that I used to trust
Only within can I find my happiness
And I'm shedding off all of my old skin after this
And as the phoenix rises out of the flames
I'm moving on and accepting the things I can't change

It's gonna take time before my heart is mended
Cause it feels just like my whole world ended
It's like a spiritual rebirth, my life is going stronger
Everyday I'm working harder and going a little longer
You left me feeling like your love was a prison
I've been betrayed by the things that I used to envision
Our world's crashed into each other just like a collision
And since you've been missing I've found a different type of religion
No more hurt, today it's gonna end
And it's time to forgive her and I'll learn to live again
I dug up old feelings to see if I could deal with em'
I thought about the man you left me for and if you're still with him
And last night I said a prayer for your happiness
Cause it's the last step of letting go of the past and this
Could be the last tear that I'll ever shed for you
Cause life will never be the same as it was before you
When things don't always work out the way that we want em'
There's always gotta be hope for everybody thats broken hearted
Some people love to lose, and live in sin
But the game isn't over until you finally win
Sometimes you'll never find love no matter where you turn
But every time you get hurt is like a chance to learn
Love could give you the highest of highs and lowest of lows
And with friends like these who really needs some foes?
And on the day you were born the angels got together
To observe your whole uphill battle provided by the devil
When you were young you had love in your heart
Too many people you trusted stepped on it and tore it apart
Cause these days they want us all to fail
Cops circle the streets seeking people to put in jail
Sometimes you've gotta play the game to keep your freedom
Cause believe it, if it was up to them they'd rather leave you bleeding

Your whole world burned down like matches
But now the phoenix rises out of the ashes
And I'm leaving behind a trail of dust
In front of all the people that I used to trust
Only within can I find my happiness
And I'm shedding off all of my old skin after this
And as the phoenix rises out of the flames
Your moving on and accepting the things I can't change

I am the phoenix
I am the phoenix
I am the phoenix
I am the phoenix rising out of the flames

You are the phoenix
You are the phoenix
You are the phoenix
You are the phoenix rising out of the flames
