You tried to keep me locked up for yourself,
Even when you were thousands of miles away.
You wouldn't let me go to parties,
When you went to clubs every weekend.
It was always ok for you to do,
But not me, oh no.
I'm just a defenseless girl,
You didn't think I could stand up for myself.
Well, now I can.
I've finally come out of my shell,
I can look you in the eye and say,"I don't need you anymore."
Watching you suffer like I did makes me feel free.
Always remember my dear,
Revenge can be so sweet,
When there's a double standard.
