Lyrics

Measure me, not by inches I am tall. It ain’t written on a wall all the ways someone can grow. Can’t you see how the height of me depends on what I've been up against. That’s how far I've had to go. I was fall fall fallen down, struck me to the ground when you shot that line. Now I’m crawl crawl crawling out lucky that I’ve found that I’m twice as fine.

And it breaks my heart.
That you threw that stone.
But you played your part.
Building my backbone

Treasure me, not by penny or by pound. That ain’t any way to count all the bounty that I hold. Can’t you see every smile you took away put a diamond in my brain, put a gold mine in my soul. I was fall fall fallen down, struck me with the sound of your bitter song. Now I’m crawl crawl crawling out, lucky that I’ve found, now I'm twice as strong.

And it breaks my heart.
That you threw that stone.
But you played your part.
Building my backbone

I was fall fall fallen down, struck me from the clouds when you stormed my skies. Now I’m crawl crawl crawling out, lucky that I’ve found now I'm twice as high.

And it breaks my heart.
That you threw that stone.
But you played your part.
Building my backbone

Remember me, sure as hell not by my face, but how well I faced the days that you brought me to my knees. Can’t you see, every curse you ever dealt put the worst under my belt, put the best in front of me.

And it breaks my heart.
That you threw that stone.
But you played your part.
Building my backbone
