"Stronger Woman" as written by Jewel Kilcher and Marv Green....
I guess you could say I'm one of those girls
That's always been with one of those guys
You know the type
Like right now, he sleeps while I write

But it's better than crying
I'm worn out from trying
From loving a man who always makes it clear
I'm not welcome here
Just when he's hungry or frisky
Or needs something cleaned
You know what I mean

But not tonight
'Cause come the morning light

I'm gonna love myself, more than anyone else
Believe in me, even if someone can't see
A stronger woman in me
I'm going to be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, never, no,
'Cause there's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman in me

The light bulbs buzz,
I get up
Head to my drawer
I wish there was more
I could say
Another fairytale fades to gray
I've lived on hope
Like a child
Walking that mile
Faking that smile
All the while
Wishing my heart had wings

Well from now on I'm going to be
The kind of woman I'd want my daughter to be, oh

I'm gonna love myself more than anyone else
Believe in me, even if someone can't see
A stronger woman in me
I'm gonna be my own best friend
Stick with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, never, no
'Cause there's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman

This is me, packing up my bags
And this is me, headed for the door
This is me, the best you ever had.

I'm going to love myself
More than anyone else
Believe in me even if someone cannot see
The stronger woman in me
I'm going to be my own best friend
Stay with me till the end
Won't lose myself again, no, no
'Cause there's a stronger woman
A stronger woman
There's a stronger woman,
A stronger woman in me,
A stronger woman in me

    General CommentIs anyone else bothered by the lyric "I'm gonna love myself / more than anyone else"? Conceited much?

    General Comment"I'm gonna love myself
    more than anyone else"

    She's not being conceited, she's being confident. She's saying she's not going to base her self worth on what OTHER people think of her. She's going to love herself more than anyone else loves her.

    "Guess you could say I'm one of those girls
    that's always been with one of those guys,
    you know the type,
    like right now he sleeps while I write."
    That first verse describes me to a T.

    I think that sentiment at the end is so beautiful,
    "from now on I'm gonna be the kind of woman I want my daughter to be."

    This is such a beautiful, empowering song.
