Gotta find your inner strength
If you can't then just throw life away
Gotta learn to rely on you

Beauty, strength, and wisdom, too
You're beautiful inside and out
Lead a great life without a doubt
Don't need a man to make things fair
'Cuz more than likely he won't be there
Listen girl, gotta know it's true
In the end all you've got is you

    General CommentThis song is the best!!

    What it means to me is like.. Be happy with you are, no matter what shape, size, colour etc you are.

    It's good to have faith in other people, but don't rely on them because they may not take responsibility for what you're giving them (trust).

    You don't need a man to tell you that you're beautiful because everyone is beautiful in their own, unique way.

    THIS SONG IS FOR THE GIRLIES!!! =D woo!!

    General Commentokay, this song means that you shouldn't be too dependant on a guy... hilary i think you should take some of your own advice... stop letting joel write all your shit. it will suck anyways. :D

    General Commenti think this is probably one of the best songs that she's done.its about how you dont have to depend on a guy,that you have your own inner strength and should learn to use it.

    General CommentAmazingly beautiful.
    I think it's her best songs.
    Basically about inner strenght.
    How people are beautiful not just out but inside.
    And how you don't need a man to always be there for you.

    It's a really good song, short and to the point.

    General CommentOops I forgot to write after short and to the point I was gonna write: Better than alot of songs where the artist/writer write on and on and basically end up saying the same thing but in different way.

    General CommentI love this song.
    It's obviously about being independant.
    And learning to stand by yourself, because in the end, you're the only person that you can rely on.
    It's also about learning to be stronger throughout everything, and if not, then you're hopeless.

    General Commenti think this song means that you dont always need a man to make you feel important because if you break up with your boyfriend all you have is yourself
