lyrics

I used to hang onto every word
Followed your every move
Remembered every touch
You work so hard
You've risked it all
I see the sacrifice

But somewhere in between
Life and love and the other stuff
We got lost
Hit by reality
What happened to our daydreams
And the simple things
We loved so much

Am I strong enough to fight these storms of life
Wanna have what it takes to make it by your side
Wanna be what you need
Want it to be you and me baby

I try to play it tough
Put my game face on
But you know that only lasts so long
Grin and bear it
forgive and forget it, move on

I promised myself
I wouldn't let you see
Certain parts of me
Well, that's failed miserably
You've seen more tears
Than I thought I had
More fears than I knew existed

Don't give up on me now
Even if I give up on myself
Don't give up on me now
I only want to be
I only want to be

Strong enough to fight these storms of life
Wanna have what it takes to make it by your side
Wanna be what you need
Want it to be you and me baby

Don't give up on me now
Even if I give up on myself
Don't give up on me now
I only want to be
I only want to be

Am I strong enough to fight these storms of life
Do I have what it takes to make it by your side
Strong enough to fight these storms of life
Wanna have what it takes to make it by your side
Wanna be what you need
Want it to be you and me baby
Wanna be what you need
Want it to be you and me baby

Strong enough to fight these storms of life
