"Lover Be Strong" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
No matter what happens, I see you on the other side
There's too many distractions, waiting for the perfect time
I know you're alright, by the friends you keep
It'll all be fine, depend on me

[Chorus:]
Oh, oh, oh lover be strong while I'm gone
And if you feel like falling, just hold on
Because everybody knows what this all we had
Everybody wants and they want it bad
Oh, oh, oh lover be strong while I'm gone

Just under the radar, a thread approach is slipping in
On another stormy morning, another issue could begin
But you heard these lines and these echoings
You ignore them all till your wedding day

[Chorus]

When you look and tell me love, just return
I'll be waiting here for you, and you do

[Chorus]

Lover be strong [x4]
Oh

    My InterpretationBasically, one person in the relationship (im going to say a guy just to make it easier in the description) is going away for a while. He is telling his significant other to wait for him until he returns. He knows there are going to be people trying to get in her ear to be with her, or to try and break them up, but he's telling her not to listen to those people cause they're just jealous of what the two of them have together. He wants her to be strong and not give in to what those people are saying. He knows its gonna be hard for her with him gone, but he feels she can do it because of the people she surrounds herself with. And at the same time he wants her to know that she can depend on him to stay strong just as well.

    General Commentthis song is really awesome gavin has a way of writing his lyrics which makes us fell part of the story that he is telling. i agree that this song is about someone leaving for a time and telling his/her significant other that everything will be alright and that when hard times comes they have each other to count on, its gives a a sense that everything is going to be fine, becasuse there love is so big that at then end it will live. i love gavin best artist ever!
