I heard Kelly Clarkson on the radio this morning and I liked it

I feel like this song is the story of my life -- hard endings turned into beautiful beginnings.

I've always wondered why being "strong" is so great. These days, I look at it like being weak creates an environment susceptible to weakness -- and weakness is hard and it hurts. Therefore, being strong makes the hard things easier.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stand a little taller, doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter, footsteps even lighter, doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone



You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone

You know I dream in color
And do the things I want


You think you got the best of me
Think you had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone

Think you left me broken down
Think that I'd come running back
Baby you don't know me, cause you're dead wrong


What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone


What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone


You heard that I was starting over with someone new
They told you I was moving on over you

You didn't think that I'd come back
I'd come back swinging
You tried to break me, but you see


What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone


What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone


Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I'm not the broken hearted
Thanks to you I'm finally thinking bout me

You know in the end the day you left was just my beginning

In the end...

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone


What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
