"Strong" as written by Eric W. Gooden and Melanie Williams....
My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I'm drunk I dance like me Dad
I've started to dress a bit like him

Early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make up
And that's a good line to take it to
The bridge

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

My bed's full of takeaways and fantasies
Of easy lays
The pause button's broke on my video
And is this real cos I feel fake
Oprah Winfrey Ricki Lake
Teach me things I don't need to know

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And it's starting to show so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

If I did it all again I'd be a nun
The rain was never cold when I was young
I'm still young we're still young
Life's too short to be afraid
Step inside the sun

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

    General Commentthis song is about living a kind of lifestyle, one that many students can relate to! living for your next night on the piss, or next joint. the song is also about realisation of the negative perceptions that one can gain from this kind of lifestyle 'life's too short to be afraid'.

    General CommentOh, I love Robbie Williams. This song is just... wonderful. Really, people aren't as strong as someone might think, and the real smart people realise it. The rest... well, they might think that they're stong. They're wrong...

    General CommentThe line:
    I look like Kiss but without the make up
    And that's a good line to take it to
    The bridge
    could obviously be take it to the bridge as in the bit before a chorus, but it also means committing suicide 'take it to the bridge' because when he wakes up he has this image to the public of being a strong confident guy, and when he see's the real him in the morning? Then going on to say 'you think that i'm strong, your wrong, your wrong' meaning we think he's a strong person but isn't really. "So take a pill to numb the pain" meaning he uses drugs to numb the pain of the media, and the people who criticize him for his ego. Good song
