Christina Aguilera
Original Translation of Slang

After all you put me through
You'd think I'd despise you
But in the end I want to thank you
Because you made me that much stronger

When I, thought I knew you
Thinking, that you were true
I guess I, I couldn't trust
Called your bluff, time is up
'Cuz I've had enough
You were, there by my side
Always, down for the ride
But your joy ride just came down in flames
'Cuz your greed sold me out in shame, mmhmm


put me through made me suffer

Called your bluff challenged your lie (poker expression)
'Cuz because

down for the ride ready to go with me
joy ride (metaphorical) wild ride in a stolen car just came down in flames ended very badly
sold me out sacrificed me

After all of the stealing and cheating
You probably think that I hold resentment for you
But, uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cuz 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

'Cuz 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

pull through survive a bad experience
wanna want to


Made my skin a little bit thicker made me less sensitive to criticism

Never saw it coming
All of your backstabbing
Just so, you could cash in
On a good thing
before I realized your game
I heard, you're going around
Playing the victim now
But don't even begin
Feeling I'm the one to blame
'Cuz you dug your own grave

After all of the fights and the lies
Yes you wanted to harm me but that won't work anymore
Uh, no more, oh no, 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
backstabbing saying bad things about someone when they are not there to hear it
cash in profit
your game
what you were doing

you dug your own grave caused your own downfall

back down retreat

How could this man I thought I knew
Turn out to be unjust so cruel
Could only see the good in you
Pretended 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


I ain't gonna I'm not going to
