"How Strong Are You Now?" as written by and Wendell Lee/thrasher Mobley....
When she told you goodbye
You didn't flinch
When she looked back
You didn't even budge an inch
You stood there like stone
But now that she's gone

CHORUS

How strong are you now
Without her around
You can't even keep one little bitty tear
From fallin' down
Tell me how strong are you know

Before she left you told yourself
It can't hurt that much
Now you're doubled over
Like you took a punch
No, she ain't coming back
Tell me how much can you take of that

REPEAT CHORUS

Tell me how strong are you now - yeah
How strong are you now - oh, oh
What's that rule you live by
You say tough guys never cry
But how strong are you now

    General CommentI don't know why I like this song.. Perhaps when I listen to it I like to put me as the girl and an ex as the guy and that makes me feel better. Haha. Mature, I know.

    But seriously the meaning of this song is pretty straightforward. This girl left this guy, and the guy was stone-hearted about it at first, but realizes how much he needs her, or how much she meant to him, and he can't keep his cold composure.

    General Commenthaha yeah i also pretend that i'm the girl and my ex is the guy. i seriously feel like this song was written for me. the guy tried to be strong, but he couldn't act like that forever, so now he wants her back.
    wow, story of my life.
