lyrics

My hearts not broke but it’s bruised a bit
It aches when it rains but I’m used to it
And I’m getting better at holding myself upright
I’m alright
I got scars everybody can see
I inked ‘em in so they belong to me
But I wouldn’t with ‘em on my enemies
Man you wouldn’t get it
quit sippin’ on my remedy

You couldn’t feel my pain
I wouldn’t ask you to
But you could hold my hand
if you should happen to

I’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
Above troubled water

My hearts banged up but it’s not broke
And I might fall but I don’t fold
And I don’t know what you’ve been told
but you don’t know a thing about me, oh no
I don’t owe no explanation
When I go off the reservation
I could be the topic of the conversation
They could talk it how they wanna
but they don’t say shit

You couldn’t feel my pain
I wouldn’t ask you to
But you could hold my hand
if you should happen to

I’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
Above troubled water

And then someone will say, “It get’s better with time.”
But I don’t want it to change
I don’t want to change

You couldn’t feel my pain
I wouldn’t ask you to
But you could hold my hand
if you should happen to

I’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
’m not a martyr
I’m working harder
To keep my head
above troubled water
Above troubled water
Troubled water
Troubled water
