‎[2003]‎
Scritta da Christina Aguilera e Scott Storch
Album “Stripped”‎

christina-aguilera-stripped

Arrivo con qualche ora di ritardo a contribuire questa canzone.‎
Ieri, 25 novembre, era infatti la giornata internazionale ‎per ‎l'eliminazione della violenza contro le donne istituita in onore delle ‎‎tre sorelle Mirabal, dominicane, ‎fatte trucidare nel 1960 dal dittatore Trujillo.‎

‎“In diverse occasioni la cantante ha parlato della sua infanzia e dei relativi problemi. Da bambina, ‎infatti, è testimone di continui atti di violenza da parte del padre, Fausto Aguilera, nei confronti ‎della madre. In un documentario per l'emittente televisiva E! è la stessa madre a ‎raccontare un particolare episodio di quegli anni, quando trovò Aguilera, all'età di quattro anni, ‎sanguinante dalla bocca; il motivo di tale violenza sarebbe stato il rumore provocato dalla bambina ‎mentre il padre riposava. Fu allora che Shelly Fidler prese la decisione di allontanarsi con le figlie, ‎tornando a casa dei genitori. Nella stessa intervista Aguilera ammette di aver tentato, in seguito, un ‎riavvicinamento con il padre che, tuttavia, non si è verificato in quanto non sente alcun bisogno di ‎mantenere un rapporto con lui. Anche le canzoni I'm OK e Oh Mother, ‎contenute rispettivamente in Stripped e Back to Basics, trattano di tali ‎eventi.” (it.wikipedia)‎
After all that you put me through,
You think I'd despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
‎'Cause you've made me that much stronger

Well I thought I knew you, thinkin' that you were true
Guess I, I couldn't trust called your bluff time is up
‎'Cause I've had enough
You were there by my side, always down for the ride
But your joy ride just came down in flames 'cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you
But uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
‎'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do, I wouldn't know
Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
‎'Cause it

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Never saw it coming, all of your backstabbing
Just so you could cash in on a good thing before I'd realize your game
I heard you're going round playing the victim now
But don't even begin feeling I'm the one to blame
‎'Cause you dug your own grave
After all of the fights and the lies 'cause you're wanting to haunt me
But that won't work anymore, no more,
It's over
‎'Cause if it wasn't for all of your torture
I wouldn't know how to be this way now and never back down
So I wanna say thank you
‎'Cause it

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretend not to see the truth
You tried to hide your lies, disguise yourself
Through living in denial
But in the end you'll see
YOU-WON'T-STOP-ME

I am a fighter and I
I ain't gonna stop
There is no turning back
I've had enough

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

You thought I would forget
But I remembered
‎'Cause I remembered
I remembered
You thought I would forget
I remembered
‎'Cause I remembered
I remembered

Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter
