A Little Bit Stronger – Sara Evans

As I sat in the courtroom yesterday across from the man I’ve loved my whole life, I was feeling so many different emotions.  I was scared, anxious, sad, hurt, angry, betrayed…  At one point, the lyrics to this song just started running through my head:  “I’m done thinking that you could ever change; I know my heart will never be the same, but I’m telling myself I’ll be okay.  Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.”  I know in the bottom of my heart that I did everything I could to try and save our marriage.  I have no regrets.   These last 4 months have been incredibly hard, but I’m trusting that God has a much bigger plan for my life.  Every day that I muster up the strength to pull myself out of bed and put a smile on my face just makes me a little bit stronger…

 

A Little Bit Stronger – Sara Evans

Woke up late today and I still feel the sting of the pain
But I brushed my teeth anyway
I got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face
I got a little bit stronger.

Riding in the car to work and I’m trying to ignore the hurt
So I turned on the radio, stupid song made me think of you
I listened to it for minute but I changed it
I’m getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger.

And I’m done hoping that we could work it out
I’m done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And I’m done thinking that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same
But I’m telling myself I’ll be okay
Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger.

Doesn’t happen overnight but you turn around
And a month’s gone by and you realize you haven’t cried
I’m not giving you a hour or a second or another minute longer
I’m busy getting stronger.

And I’m done hoping that we can work it out
I’m done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And I’m done thinking, that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same
But I’m telling myself I’ll be okay
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger
I get a little bit stronger.

Getting along without you, baby
I’m better off without you, baby
How does it feel without me, baby?
I’m getting stronger without you, baby.

And I’m done hoping we could work it out
I’m done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And I’m done thinking that you could ever change.
I know my heart will never be the same
But I’m telling myself I’ll be okay
Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger.

I get a little bit stronger
Just a little bit stronger
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit stronger
I get a little bit stronger.
