Strong Enough - Lyrics

Be careful the doors that you open
With the words that you speak and the people who will hold them
'Cause long ago someone told me I was broken and it stuck
I've tried to pull the words away,
but my hands are never strong enough

Have you ever read a shadow
sentence that filled your spirit with shame?
People can call you by so many things that aren't your true name
And, yes, we all get angry
And, yes, we all get tired
But just remember what leaves your heart
Can fuel or fade someone else's fire

So, be careful the doors that you open
With the words that you speak and the people who will hold them
'Cause long ago someone told me I was broken and it stuck
I've tried to pull the words away,
but my hands are never strong enough
My hands are never strong enough

So, when a hurting soul hurts you
They're only passing the pain
They probably don't know your story
They don't know your true name
That you are loved and forgiven
That you are good at your core
And you are stronger now because of the
shadowlands you've walked through before

So, be careful the doors that you open
With the words that you speak and the people who will hold them
'Cause long ago someone told me I was broken and it stuck
I've tried to pull the words away,
but my hands are never strong enough
My hands are never strong enough

(Ooh) It just takes a second to feel it but
(Ooh) It can take a lifetime to heal it
(Ooh) It just takes a second to feel but
(Ooh) It can take a lifetime to heal

And long ago someone told me I was broken and it stuck
I've tried to pull the words away,
but my hands are never strong enough
My hands are never strong enough

But I know my true name
But I know my true name (Long ago someone told me I was broken)
But I know my true name (Someone told me I was broken and it stuck)
But I know my true name (People can call you by so many things)
But I know my true name (People can call you by so many things)
But I know my true name
