about

A song for grown up girls and the dads who love them.

lyrics

I wrote this tender little song
I hope it keeps you strong
In a world on the take
It’s your little keepsake

It’s just a secret little thought
That money has not bought
When you’re feeling destroyed
By bosses and boys

Well please …
Stay strong
Stay strong
Stay strong
Oh, stay strong
It won’t last for long
If you can just please stay strong

And all the things that I did wrong
I left them out of this song
In the hope you’d forget them
And we could both move on

So take it as you go
And let the whole world know
Back where you come from
Is forever your home

So please …
Stay strong
Stay strong
Stay strong
Oh darling, stay strong
It won’t last for long
If you can just please stay …

I sang to you when you were born
I will sing to you forevermore

We walked for miles, child and man
I tried not to hurt your tiny hand

I watched you dance from the back of the room
My heart melting with every move

You are a light that shines in me
And you have always made me happy

So please …
Stay strong
Stay strong
Stay strong
Stay strong
It won’t last for long
If I can just stay strong

I wrote this tender little song
I hope it keeps you strong
In a world on the take
In the life that you make
