lyrics

Sad songs are so very often written
So long before you live the words within them
How strong do you have to be to change them now
Don't wait for time to pass your reservations
Don't stay till God decides to turn the station
Don't make a promise that you can't lift off the ground
Let alone carry it

And you're only as strong as your hands can hold
And what your hands can't hold you can't claim as yours
You're only as strong as your hands can hold
And what your hands can't hold you can't claim as yours anymore

The rain is getting strong enough to drink
And your brain can hardly hear itself to think
Your voice strains in your throat for one more note to reach
But can you carry it

And you're only as strong as your hands can hold
And what your hands can't hold you can't claim as yours
You're only as strong as your hands can hold
And what your hands can't hold you can't claim as yours anymore

You bet your heart on that you'd be a star
You were wrong you were wrong
How lucky you are

And you're only as strong as your hands can hold
And what your hands can't hold you can't claim as yours
You're only as strong as your hands can hold
And what your hands can't hold you can't claim as yours anymore

"Lush with strings, angelic harmonies and melodies that swoop and soar like a hook-laden roller coaster"(Sacramento Bee)
