For all of those people reading this that have been hit, hurt, bullied and humiliated, this post is for you! The words to this Taylor Swift song are so moving. Go put on your cowboy boots and sing it at the top of your lungs and say “Buh Bye” to the abuser!

“You, with your words like knives
And swords and weapons that you use against me

You have knocked me off my feet again
Got me feeling like I’m nothing

You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard calling me out when I’m wounded

You picking on the weaker man

Well you can take me down with just one single blow

But you don’t know, what you don’t know…

Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me

And all you’re ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

You, with your switching sides
And your wildfire lies and your humiliation

You have pointed out my flaws again
As if I don’t already see them

I walk with my head down
Trying to block you out ’cause I’ll never impress you

I just wanna feel okay again

I bet you got pushed around
Somebody made you cold
But the cycle ends RIGHT NOW

Cause you can’t lead me down that road
And you don’t know, what you don’t know…

Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me

And all you’re ever gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?

And I can see you years from now in a bar, talking over a football game

With that same big loud opinion
But nobody’s listening

Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things

Drunk and grumbling on about how I can’t sing

But all you are is mean

All you are is mean

And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

But someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city

And all you’re ever gonna be is mean, yeah

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me
And all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so?..

Someday I’ll be living in a big ol’ city and all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Someday I’ll be big enough so you can’t hit me
and all you’re ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?”
