lyrics

The Strong Survive (by Nikki Lynette)

The one you love might be the one to let you down every time.
Every time, oh, every time.
Just be sure you can survive without no one by your side.
'Cause in life, the strong survive.

I wanna tell you something that I bet you never hear
I wanna tell the truth, if you'll promise me your ear
Sometimes you have a friend closer to you than your kin, but what do you do when those who close betray you in the end
Stole the joy from your grin and tossed it in the wind/
Don't change within, just grow a thicker skin.
Backstabbers have to be close to get the knife in, so you gotta guard your heart with the force of 40 men
I'm gonna tell u clearly that i think its kinda silly that we're taught to fear a stranger
while the danger is near
I know nobody's perfect and the world is full of hurt but the ones you love should never be the causing tears
People always told us keep our enemies close, so we growing into not knowing a friend from a foe
Will the day ever show where people know right from wrong, hope so, but I really don't know

The one you love might be the one to let you down every time.
That ain't right, no, that ain't right.
So just be sure you can survive without no one by your side.
'Cause in life, the strong survive.


Now there are plenty reasons to stay mad at life but all the reasons lead to reliving your strife.
Cuz by the time you linger on how someone wasn't nice, staying mad, feeling bad, you living through your pain twice.
Don't do it to yourself, cuz happiness has a price, and the price is forgiveness, a grudge is a vice.
They hurt you, they sliced at the threads of your life but what's tearing you apart is holding on to being right.
Forgiving is hard, like breaking through prison bars but the healing wont start til you let go of the scars.
Strong people forgive and get the pain out their system
Weak people relive and they keep playing the victim/.
People always told us keep our enemies close, but I'd rather keep my distance than be phoney to a foe.
Best wisdom to own is knowing when to let go, but that's something u already know.

The one you love might be the one to let you down every time.
Don't you cry, no, don't you cry.
So just be sure you can survive without no one by your side.
'Cause in life, the strong survive.
The strong survive, the strong survive, the strong survive, the strong survive.

The one you love might be the one to let you down every time.
Dry your eyes, you dry your eyes.
So just be sure you can survive without no one by your side.
'Cause in life, the strong survive.
