Strength

About this song: Lyrically, I’m really proud of this song and really like it. I’m not crazy about this recording, and it’s also really taxing to sing it live, so I rarely play it. It’s a goal to get a good solid recording of this song that I’m happy with.

Strength
Move away to a new place
I hope I never see you again
I have found new strength since you left
And you know I never wanted this to happen
But since it has
I am finding that I am glad
And I’m finding myself again
And realizing I need only me

“Come back to me”
I’ll never say those again forever
You can say them
But whatever
I am finally moving forward
With the story I had started
And ever since you came I halted
The story you will not take part
I’m cutting you out of my heart

And you can move away
To a new place
I hope I never see you again
I have found new strength since you left
And you know I never wanted this to happen
But since it has
I am finding that I am glad
And I’m finding myself again
And realizing I need only me

“Come back to me”
I’ll never say those words again forever
You can say them, but it doesn’t matter
I am finally moving forward
With the story I had started
And ever since you came I halted
The story you will not take part in
I’m cutting you out of my heart

And you can move away to a new state
And I will stay right where I am
And you can make yourself a new name
And I will keep the one that I’ve had all along
That somehow got lost
One that I will now keep track of
And you can say “come back” all you want
But I have found the strength to move on
