So Strong

This is a song I wrote back in….wait for it…1995. yes, indeed. I’ve been humming it now for a few weeks again so it’s making a comeback courtesy of my newfound guitar playing…

So Strong
(adc 1995)

All my life been afraid of something
Counted stars while I fell asleep
Circumstances will get me somewhere
All my life looked for something better
But I feel this fear
And I know this symptom
It follows me when I’m all alone
I want to feel so strong
And leave this wandering
So I will know where I belong.

In the winter I pray for refuge
In this world that I leave behind
Catch me now while I drown in laughter
And point myself in a straight line
‘cause I feel this fear and I know this symptom
It follows me wherever I go
I want to feel so strong
And leave this wandering
So I know where I belong

It doesn’t matter how far I take it
I keep coming back to this place
You can tell me it’s part of the journey
I may not believe you, still

All my life been infused with impatience
Counted minutes while I fell asleep
This is why I follow the rules, I think
Hoping that something good will come to me
But I feel this fear and I know this symptom
It follows me wherever I go
I want to feel so strong and undefeated
And leave this wandering
On my own
I want to feel so strong
And know this adventure
No surprises on this avenue
When I feel so strong and know my purpose
I will wait
And see it through.
