I'm stronger than you say I am
Though you act as if I'm weak
One so blind and confused
Mistreated and abused
A heart so frail and meek
Why not try the truth this time?
It will hurt but I'll survive
Baby, can't you see?
Though it's killing me
I will be alive

I don't have a heart of glass
I'm not about to fall apart
It's not too much for it to take
If you drop it, it won't break
I'll prove to you you're not as smart
As you believe
So end my schemes
Shatter my dreams
But you won't shatter my heart

I know you love somebody else
And you know I'm not blind
So leave me alone
To face the world on my own
Leave me left behind
You think that without your love
My life is incomplete
But baby, our love is dead
I need a place for my head
I may cry in defeat, but

I don't have a heart of glass
I'm not about to fall apart
It's not too much for it to take
If you drop it, it won't break
I'll prove to you you're not as smart
As you believe
So end my schemes
Shatter my dreams
But you won't shatter my heart

I try to escape the darkness of my past
Because of this you think I am fragile
And my heart is made of glass
It's impossible to face it and I am so afraid
But as I get older, the fear begins to fade
And I hear a voice inside that cries
"Thank God, I'm free at last!"
And thank God I finally found my voice
I finally can make the choice
To laugh instead of weep
I don't need anyone at all
I am better off alone
I'll take everything I own
With my heart, which you no longer keep

I don't have a heart of glass
I'm not about to fall apart
It's not too much for it to take
If you drop it, it won't break
I'll prove to you you're not as smart
As you believe
So end my schemes
Shatter my dreams
But you won't shatter my heart
