  1. For What it Was

From the album Rise

Lyrics

For what it was, I’m validated in my dreams
For what it was, I stopped controlling everything
And I learned that I am capable of learning from my past
For what it was, it was, it was, and wasn’t meant to last

Well what is validation? I’ll tell you what it’s not
Is everyone discouraging everything you’ve fought for
Then you say I’m not crazy for doing what I do
And all the things I live for, you live for them too

For what it was, I’m validated in my dreams
For what it was, I stopped controlling everything
And I learned that I am capable of learning from my past
For what it was, it was, it was, and wasn’t meant to last

And what is control? It’s taking everything that’s good
And killing it with why, and how, and when, and what, and should
Well you were liberation for what obligation hid
We sang “come away with me”, and that’s just what we did

For what it was, I’m validated in my dreams
For what it was, I stopped controlling everything
And I learned that I am capable of learning from my past
For what it was, it was, it was, and wasn’t meant to last

For what it was...

And what does it mean to change the way you’ve been?
There’s fear in knowing you might make the same mistakes again
Well thank you for providing me a second chance to be
The type of girl that leaves when someone’s mistreating me

For what it was, I’m validated in my dreams
For what it was, I stopped controlling everything
And I learned that I am capable of learning from my past
For what it was, it was, it was, and wasn’t meant to last

And I am not the type of girl who has to hate her lovers past
For what it was, it was, and wasn’t meant to last
And they warned us but we already knew that we were moving fast
For what it was, it was, and wasn’t meant to last

For what it was...
