"That Made Me Stronger" as written by and Drury/crago/nicks....
Dreams reoccur in my solitude
Breaking my heart
Injuring my mood
With all of the things that I thought I knew
It was you

[Chorus]
Well the conversation rings in my head
Well you know me better than I know myself
Will you write this for me
He says no, you write your songs yourself
That made me stronger
It made me hold on to me

Well, I remember
You caught my eye
It was late September
It was no surprise
He made me better
His songs were soft and tender sometimes

Well the conversations ring in my head
I remember everything that we said
All those tears that we shed

[Chorus]

The conversations ring in my head
I remember everything that we said
All those tears that we shed
Don't call me when you're lonely

[Chorus]

Well once more I tell the shadows of my soul
To stay back
Everything has changed now
And I don't want to go back
And nothing you can say can change my mind

Well once more I tell the shadows of my soul
To stay back
Everything has changed now
And I don't want to go back
And nothing you can say can change my mind

    General CommentStevie didn't have much self esteem before she wrote this song..it was 1995, her 1994 solo album STREET ANGEL had been a commercial flop..she had recently gotten out of rehab AGAIN for a dependency on prescription drugs..

    She wondered , "can i write anymore?" So she called up her longtime pal Tom Petty and asked him to write some songs for her..and he basically told her "Shut up, you write your own songs...you need to get in a car, go home and write.."
    She said she took his advice wrote this song, and many others on the TISL album...and regained her confidence as one of rock's best singer/songwriters.
