Heart of gold by Birdy

I can be strong when I want to be,
You think I’m weak ‘cause you can tear me apart
With the words that you speak
You think you’re in control but you don’t understand
How much you are wrong
You choose to lash out at me, I’ve done nothing wrong
All you crave is attention
And just to be loved. You need to be loved

[Chorus:]
And I want to be free
When my heart is made from gold
And forgiveness seems too bold
I still find it in my heart
To say, "I love you."
When my heart is made from gold
And the hurt is just too bold
I still find it in my heart
To say, "I love you."

Is there not enough to use your love for me
To get past the things that cause you envy and hate
And the fights that they bring?

You say you're looked on as small.
Can’t understand why you don’t have it all
But you don’t know how I fight for you
And believe in your aims,
I just wanna do right by you,
Forget what has changed ‘cause nothing has changed

[Chorus]

But you don't have to be so mean
You’re such a drama queen
The way you play on every weakness that you see in me
To make you strong, you were all along

So don’t pretend like you can hardly breathe
Like it’s down to me
‘Cause it’s so unfair that you can’t succeed
Well, you’re so wrong
We’re still so young

[Chorus]
