Almost nothing shakes me.
I'll admit tonight I'm scared, scared to death.
All this talk of leavin',
Walkin' away from love we've shared takes my breath.
I could find the strength within myself.

But I don't wanna be that strong.
I don't wanna know that feeling,
Of barely hangin on while my broken heart is healing.
I know the hands of time would hold me until all the hurt is gone.
I could make it on my own,
But I don't wanna be that strong.

I could hold my head up.
I could keep the tears inside for a while.
Fill the anxious days.
Somehow face the lonely nights for a while.
When I need to I could even force a smile.

But I don't wanna be that srong.
I don't wanna know that feeling,
Of barely hanging on while my broken heart is healing.
I know the hands of time would hold me until all my hurt is gone.
I could make it on my own,
But I don't wanna be that strong.
