How To Be Strong
How To Be Strong song is on My CD
There are MP3s and Real Audio available


My emotions like leaves on a tree
are ripped to shreds in this violent storm
I must run to find shelter
Shelter to protect me from harm

As I look into your dark eyes
I see flashes of bright lightening
Chills run up and down my spine
The howl of the wind is so frightening

How to be strong, when the river is churning
How to be strong in the midst of a storm
How to be strong when your stomach is turning
How to be strong, how can I be strong

There's a big heartbreak around the corner
I don't want to turn, I'm afraid what I'll face
I tried to hide from the noise and confusion
But I can't run, can't escape this place
Because its a bad, bad situation
I'm in trouble no matter what I do
I keep meeting up with resistance
And the resistance is coming from you

How to be strong, in the midst of a heartbreak
How to be strong, with no self esteem
How to be strong, when you feel like nothing
How to be strong, how can I be strong

The wind is tearing at the branches
The trunk holds firm, the roots are deep
The only thing keeping me from chaos
Are the roots of my soul that run deep
Because its an uphill battle
I'm in trouble no matter what I do
I keep meeting up with resistance
And the resistance is coming from you

How to be strong, when the river is churning
How to be strong in the midst of a storm
How to be strong when your stomach is turning
How to be strong, how can I be strong
