Martina Sorbara Once I Was Mighty Lyrics

Last updated:

When I strip for my window
The audience is always easy
And when I kiss my pillow
At least I know what he sees in me
I could be seductive
But I'm just not seductive
I'm not the mystery
That you made of me

So I've boarded up the windows
Of my palace
So I've grown accustomed to
Rose colored glasses

I called all the local papers
Saying look what he did to me
Look what he said to me
Don't take this guy seriously
Still I find myself on my knees
Repenting relentlessly
For what he didn't find in me
For what I didn't turn out to be

He says I boarded up the windows
Of my palace
That I've grown accustomed to
Rose colored glasses

So I live the life in pink
So I'm different than you think
So I'm not so outrageous
I'm not so outrageous

There was a time I was mighty
When I stood as tall as I can
Yeah, once I was mighty
Now you've made even smaller
Than I am

'Cause I've boarded up the windows
Of my palace
I've grown accustomed to
Rose colored glasses

So I live the life in pink
So I'm different than you think
I'm not so outrageous
So I couldn't do what you did
I'm a little more timid
I'm not so courageous
I'm not so courageous

Once I was mighty
Once I was mighty
