I Don't Have To Be Strong

(c) 1999, Serina Jung / Eric Bernard

you know, I hate to cry

makes me feel so weak

and I feel ashamed of my vulnerability

instead I scoff while I quiver like a leaf

but it’s easier than admitting I’m sensitive

 

when you get too close

I seek solitude

a place to hide but I find no shelter

I’m not consoled by my desperate company

but it’s easier than saying I need you

 

I don’t have to be strong

shouldn’t need to be in control

if my tears want to fall I should let them flow

I don’t need to be cruel or tough or hard

I should learn to let go

 

I can be such a fool when I push you to extremes

when I need to win to make me bigger

so I rock the boat and flounder while I sink

cuz it’s easier than making apologies

 

I don’t have to be strong

shouldn’t need to be in control

if my tears want to fall I should let them flow

I don’t need to be cruel or tough or hard

I should let my feelings show

I should learn to let go

 

I’m curt when I’m caught off-guard

angry when I must justify

silent when I’m cornered

aloof when I’m ignored

cocky when I’m questioned

adamant when I’m uncertain

 it’s wearing me down

 wearing me down 

 

I don’t have to be strong

shouldn’t need to be in control

if my tears want to fall I should let them flow

I don’t need to be cruel or tough or hard

I should let my feelings show

I should learn to let go
