Lyrics
Be That Strong
(lyrics by Jimmy Nace)

Standin’ on a corner lookin’ at you
Thinkin ‘bout the things that you’ve been through
And if I thought I could ease your mind
I do believe I would give it a try.

The violation of a young man
Who could wash that blood from their hands
It’s a mixed up world we live in
Take a look at the places you’ve been.

Chorus:
   Just to think everything’s okay
   I wish that I could see things that way
   Just to act as if there’s nothing wrong
   I wish that I could be that strong.

What kind of fear what kind of spite
Sleeps with you on the street tonight
Always lookin’ for a way out
There’s just too many things you can’t talk about.

Mama went crazy when your Daddy’s heart failed
Remember the night the sirens wailed.
You just stood there like a stone
a little too young to be on your own.

Chorus:
  Just to think everything’s okay
  I wish that I could see things that way
  Just to act as if there’s nothing wrong
  I wish that I could be that strong

Solo:
Repeat Chorus
