Why am I not strong enough for you?
Well I will fight for my life
That's just how I role
It's easy to let go

Where you gonna be in ten years time?
Well I'm gonna be in heaven
With you, with you
Before you were mine

Why am I not strong enough for you?
Well I will fight for my life
That's just how I role
It's easy to say no
No

Where you gonna be in ten years time?
Well I'm gonna be in heaven
With you, with you
Before you were mine

I'll never give up this dream
And I'll let you share it with me
(Woah) But I have no power over you

No, I have no power over you

    General CommentJack said it was written "for Harry and Ryan". It's actually about them, the "you" is them.

    In 10 years time, he expected them to be in his heaven- famous. Which is his dream that he is willing to share with them.


    The song also hints that he might have had a clue that his dream might not come true with Harry and Ryan, with pretty much all the ending lines of the verses "It's easy to let go/say no," and "I have no power over you".


    Genius song. Structure's great.

    General Commenti agree sanj: 'Why am I not strong enough for you?' and 'That's just how I role' seem to say: this is me, all i can give should be enough? i have to go on, take it or leave it. . . . . .
