She's Past Being Strong

You live with how you feel
They can’t tell you when you’re old
That you were wrong, because you misspoke
It’s as if they were waiting all along
For a story a tired woman told or maybe wrote
After a long life of sleeping in the cold

At least somebody was listening
It took them thirty years to find something
You gave them nothing but who you are
A changing tide of truth not wrong
The song you sing is about traveling far
It reminds you of an old wedding ring

Don’t let it wake you up before the dawn
They only live to prove you wrong
What kind of way to live is that
It’s not you, you’re way past being strong
Courage stands where doubt once sat

You had a friend who kissed you once
He said I remember that night
Did it hurt you that he was gone
He’s back saying now you belong
In his heart, a light he finally turned on
When he realized you know what’s right

Don’t let it wake you up before the dawn
They only live to prove you wrong
What kind of way to live is that
It’s not you, you’re way past being strong
Courage stands where doubt once sat
