Tanos Chavez / Angie Chavez / Darden Smith

I’ve been holding on far too long
It’s time to let go now, time to move on
There’s a good man down inside of me
I’m more than just that ex-Marine
I want to show you
I want to show you

Show you strong, show you life
You deserve, man and wife
Show you peace, the tender touch
We both need so much
If it takes a whole life long

I was so good at being tough over there
But here in this house I’m so scared
I was trained to be angry, trained to be hard
I need your help learning how to let down my guard
I want to know you
I want to show you

Show you strong show you kind
Laughing talking peace of mind
Show you who I really am
I can be that better man
Right all these wrongs
Oh strong

I can carry the world on my shoulders
But right now alI need
Your compassion your forgiveness
And to know your here with me

To show me strong, lead the way
Through the storm to better days
When I’m down on my knees
In your eyes I can see
Right where I belong
Make it last a whole life long
You’re so strong
I’m so strong
We could be so strong
