I Can Be Strong

by Magnolia, GLIDE Family

When you told me I have cancer my soul fell blue
Felt my fight was over, felt my life was through
Felts so confused and alone that day
Had no idea how I would find my way
I used to wish the sky would smack me on my head
Woke up wishing if I could just go back to bed
Felt so confused that I wished I were dead
But that was yesterday, I can’t give up, no way

You told me if I needed something just pick up and dial
Wondered for a moment could I borrow half your smile
‘Cause I had no idea how I will walk this mile
And even God will need a miracle if I have to fight
I used to wish I could just disappear
So mad at the world that I wished I wasn’t here
Cried so much I wished I’d drown in my own tears
But that was yesterday, I can’t give up, now way

If I give up now how will I win
Would I fall to hard, would it really be the end
I know I’d cheat myself, and it would feel so wrong
To finally get this far and finally not feel strong

I’ve come too far to give up now
Gotta keep fighting somehow
I been fighting strong this long
Can’t give up, no, not at all
Gotta keep catching me when I fall
I know I can be strong
