If Only You Could Feel Strong


Broken and Beautiful – Part 4
I am working on a new song called Broken and Beautiful. It’s actually an old idea that was resurrected from the bone pile. If you want the back story, you can check out part 1 and part 2. I thought I finally had all of the words figured out. Upon further inspection, the second verse was wrong. I didn’t have to change much. A handful of new words pushed it in a completely different direction.  I believe we now have a perfect second verse.  I guess I better have a go at the third verse before we hit the studio.      

(verse 2)
To get out of bed in the morning
You had to sell your soul
No, it wasn’t a deal with the devil
You had to snuggle up with your own demons
Just to live with yourself 
You got to be somebody else
Just to give it a go one more time
You gotta be better than this

(new verse 2)
To get out of bed in the morning
Takes everything that you’ve got
You feel like you’re never enough
If only you could feel strong
For you to live with yourself 
You got to be somebody else
Just to give it a go one more time
You gotta be someone better than this
