about

Strength To Be Strong was produced by Irish musician Michael Buckley.

'Strength To Be Strong is about having to dig deep to find the strength to stay strong in the face of ongoing adversity. To release this song first felt like an appropriate choice given the world events of the last 18 months'

lyrics

Everyday you promise that somethings gonna change
But you stumble over and forget to refrain
You break me open and you tear my heart right out
Leave me hanging in a cloud of doubt

I try to look the other way
And find peace in disarray
Lord if you hear me now won't you help me to hold on

And give me the Strength To Be Strong
The Strength To Be Strong

Healers and dealers are one in the same
Selling solutions to an unbeatable game
We're search for the answers and maybe we can find
Something to bring that peace of mind

I try to look the other way
And find peace in disarray
Lord if you hear me now won't you help me to hold on
If you hear me now help me sing this song

And give me the Strength To Be Strong
The Strength To Be Strong

ooh ooh ooh
La la la

[Instrumental]

I try to look the other way
And find peace in disarray
I try to look the other way
And find peace in disarray

Lord if you hear me now won't you help me to hold on
If you hear me now help me sing this song
Lord if you hear me now won't you help me to belong

And give me the Strength To Be Strong
The Strength To Be Strong
The Strength To Be Strong
The Strength To Be Strong
The Strength To Be Strong
