Mind Over Matter.


I am stronger than I look.
I am stronger than you think I am.
I am stronger than I think I am
Sometimes.

I can be your savior.
I can wear the halo.
I can carry you
Because I am stronger than heaven or the hell
Of knowing
That you would never do the same.

I would save you.
I would shoulder your burdens.
I would keep you from drowning
In the sea of self-pitying tears you''ve cried.

I am stronger than I look to you.
I am stronger than you think I am.
(Do you think of me at all?)
I am stronger than I think I am.
Sometimes I am strong enough
To let you discover your own weakness.
Strong enough to let you go.
