“STRONGER”

People offer from all sides
Suggestions and their lies
You’re stumbling through your doubt
Just want an easy out
Cause you’re screaming on your knees inside

Yeah, you’ve been through storms before
But this one’s got you on the floor
You know you should get up
But you don’t want to trust
Love left you broken, bruised and sore

It gets worse before it gets better
Sometimes hearts will change just like the weather
Scars will fade, it won’t be much longer
When your heart breaks, it gets stronger
Stronger
And there is nothing left for you to lose
That wouldn’t be good for you
Love can bring you down, it can pull you through
Sometimes the pain’s good for you

You thought you’d had all you could take
But God held you, you didn’t break
Arms wide open now
Nothing can hold you down
But memories come and you start to ache

It gets worse before it gets better
Sometimes hearts will change just like the weather
Scars will fade, it won’t be much longer
When your heart breaks, it gets stronger
Stronger
And there is nothing left for you to lose
That wouldn’t be good for you
Love can bring you down, it can pull you through
Sometimes the pain’s good for you

Don’t be so hard on yourself
It takes strength to ask for help
All these sorrows you have known
Are turning into beautiful stepping stones

In a crowd you’re still alone
It’s emptiness that fills your bones
Hope’s a rare disease
Catch it and you will see
You could feel love like you’ve never known

It gets worse before it gets better
Sometimes hearts will change just like the weather
Scars will fade. It won’t be much longer
When your heart breaks, it gets stronger
Stronger
And there is nothing left for you to lose
That wouldn’t be good for you
Love can bring you down. It can pull you through
Sometimes the pain’s good for you
This time the pain’s good for you
