Ever since I was a young girl
I've been strong for everybody else
Now that I'm a little older
I think it's time I let myself
Cry when I need to
Be shy if I want to
Don't have to keep a smile
Upon my face

Chorus
I don't want to be the strong one
I don't want to pick the pieces off the floor
This time I want to be the one
Who needs a little shelter from the storm
Keep me warm
I don't want to be the strong one anymore

I'm so tired of pretending
Make believing everything's alright
I hide all of my feelings
Oh but maybe tonight
I'll cry when I need to
Be shy if I want to
Don't have to keep a smile
Upon my face

I don't want to be the strong one
I don't want to pick the pieces off the floor
This time I want to be the one
Who needs a little shelter from the storm
Keep me warm
I don't want to be the strong one anymore

Cry when I need to
Be shy if I want to
Don't have to keep a smile
Upon my face

I don't want to be the strong one
I don't want to pick the pieces off the floor
This time I want to be the one
Who needs a little shelter from the storm
Won't somebody keep me warm
I don't want to be the strong one
I don't want to be the strong one
I don't want to be the strong one anymore

I'm gonna be shy if I want to
I'm gonna cry if I want to
Cause i'm not gonna be
The strong one anymore
