Kelly Clarkson – Stronger lyrics

[Verse 1]
You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone

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

[Pre-Chorus]
You think you've got the best of me
Think you've 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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
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 you 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

[Bridge]
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 is just my beginning
In the end

[Chorus]
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 you 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

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

[Outro]
I'm not alone

    You don't need a man in your life to make it through all you need is a hard-core vision of what you want and a clear head. You can acheive anything you want. Success is in your hands, not a man's so I think this song means that she doesn't need a man in her life, and the heartbreak he caused her only made her stronger. So in the end if a guy hurts you, you really do grow from that, you become stronger. Honestly he helped you, in a weird twisted way. But that's what this song means to me. No one stops you from being you.

    "stronger" is a song about when you are knocked down, you won't stay knocked down. It tells us that we can get right back up, dust ourselves off, and start clean. It shows me that even in times of dark, we are built to have courage and be able to be who we are. We show passion in what we love, not what didn't love us. We think of the future, not the past. We carry on with our lives, without a care in the world.

    When my parents decided not to be together anymore it shows my mom she can be strong cause he left us just hanging an now that I see him more hes ex is totally crazy an I tell my dad all the time "what dosent kill you makes you stronger" I also started listeing to it when the boyfriend I had for 6 months left me an tried playing mind games on me. I always loved kelly clarkson an always will all her songs have strong good meanings to make yourself feel good at the end of the day :)

    The day that my ex broke up with me, I sang this song walking home as loud as I could. When I got to the chorus, I realized that I was already over him because he'd dumped me for another girl, and there is no point in wasting my time on someone who doesn't care about me. So then I started think about how my family has made it through so many hard times. This song means a lot to me.

    This song is so moving and sweet. It makes you think that you are invincible and that you can do anything and you can do it all by yourself. It sends you such a good thought to your mind. Its saying that you are strong and that no words can hurt you in any way and that when you get hurt but your still alive that means that you can do more that what you thought you could. You can do anything!
