"We don't want you on our team."
Liz tossed aside blond curls
Hands on hips with all her second grade authority
"Go away, your face looks like it got run over by a truck."
And tears fell down Cat's face to shouts of glee

She ran across the playground, behind the jungle gym
And hid underneath a table for the rest of the hour
She vowed to never cry in public again
I will be strong
I will be strong

Dinner at six, as wonderful could be
But what Dean would remember for years
His mother's comment about his friend as he stepped out the door
"You said she's the same age as you but graduates in a term?
Then my boy, you should be ashamed of yourself
You're two years behind."
Finally in the car, Dean whispered to himself
I will be strong
I will be strong

Her parents had loved Dave, and Steph did too
Even though she's the one that broke things off
Christmastime and she was home for the weekend
But breaking the news had just gone terribly wrong

He wanted a house with a white picket fence
But Steph needed adventure and a partner in that
"You're going to be single your entire life if you don't give up those silly dreams."
I will be strong
I will be strong

And when will the time come when we won't have to hide insecurity
And when will the time come when we can face our vulnerabilities
And where is the one who promises that he will never leave
That knows our inner parts and weaknesses and loves us anyway?

I will be strong
I don't want to be strong
I can't be strong
I can't be strong
