You Are Strong

Lift anchor and slowly you drift out to sea
Your back is turned to the land
The creak of the sailboat, the crystal-blue sky
Behind you- you still see the sand
You've been there and done that but still feel so small
Your troubles have left you weak
Alone in the ocean, the steering gets hard
You cry till you can no longer speak

A storm moves in closer, you didn't see it before
Soon lightning strikes you and you're down on the floor

The winds will prevail, it'll always keep blowing
So put up your sail and go with the flow- and
Know that you're special, know you're enough
To get yourself going when the going gets rough
No matter the rainfall that falls from the sky
Stand tall with the courage that'll help you get by
And when the storm's over and there's no danger zone
You feel strong, you stand strong- for you're not alone

You walk in the street in the middle of the day
pondering the things you have known
Been told that you're pretty but told that you're weak
Ever since you were well enough grown
You remember the times that had caused you to fall
When walking you start to sway
As you pass by a stranger, he gives you a smile
And that smile lights up your day

When nothing goes right and you're on verge of tears
Let the smile come in, let it calm all your fears


Those living on shadow look up to your light
You're the candle on a hill
When you're strong naught can get you, you can't be brought down
So the storm is at a standstill
Though at times you don't feel it, you're stronger than most
In your footing you seem so grand
Others will join you when they see who you are
Your strength shows in the way that you stand

An armada comes at you and your little team
Can you stand strong for me and follow your dreams?


You feel strong, you are strong... You're never alone
