Words & Music by Jessie Sparks

let me get something off my chest

i used to think we could make it on our own
we are strong, oh so strong, so strong
it used to be we could stand all on our own
we were strength, we were strength

but we’re not
yes we were but i can’t & i won’t no more

the starlight all around us shines much dimmer now
& the wind that pushed us onward seems to have died down
& heavy rain keeps washing our direction from the ground

we were strength
we were strength
we were strength
but we’re not no more

we’ve walked in line of fire without being shot down
we stood strong, oh so strong, so strong
we’ve cut through ropes & ties all the times our hands were bound
we were strength, we were strength

but we’re not
yes we were but i can’t & i won’t no more

our shield & our amour is nowhere to be found
& flesh that healed within a day won’t stop bleeding now
& when the sky is falling we let it push us down

we were strength
we were strength
we were strength
but we’re not no more

i wanna shake away the weakness, don’t wanna fake my only happiness
i wanna shake away the weakness, don’t wanna fake my only happiness
i wanna shake away the weakness
