To the first boy who ever cheated on me,
I've only got three things to say to you:
You played with my heart like it was some sort of toy
And after you had your fun you broke it
You watched the tears roll down my cheeks
As if they were a phenomenon
you could not hope to understand.
Your apology was empty
Just like the months of my life I gave to you.
I may not have been pretty then. But I sure as hell am now.
You have no clue what you gave up.
I cared for you like the night sky cares for the stars
And if I wasn't sexy enough for you then
I hope you're kicking yourself
After seeing how I've grown up.
I never thought I would be pretty either.
Thank you because I thought it was my fault. And I thought i could've done better.
Thank you because i realized that isn't true.
Thank you because the next time a boy broke my heart
I didn't blame myself.
Thank you because I learned that,
To find a boy who loves me
The way I wanna be loved,
I've got to love myself.
I learned that respect
Is not something you get from
Constantly putting yourself down.
Thank you because I now can be sympathetic to my future child
When their heart is broken.
Thank you because now I can tell them
That it'll be okay.
Thank you because now the sting of every heartbreak
Is a little bit less.
So don't worry about me.
I'm doing fine
