Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah

My heart has been so broken
Holding everyone so close
Counting on them being there
When I needed them the most
There comes a time when you realize
That the only pair of arms
That will never let you go are your own
I’m not afraid to be alone

CHORUS
Because the strength of a woman
Comes from inside her
The light of her soul
Is to bright to hide her
Strength of a woman
So few understand
That it doesn’t depend on the man

I’m learning day by day now
How much power lives in me
No more hanging on Cinderella fantasies
I place my life all the good and bad
With the courage to move on to whatever lies ahead
Come what may
I’ll hear the voice inside me say

CHORUS
That the strength of a woman
Comes from inside her
The light of her soul
Is to bright to hide her
The strength of a woman
So few understand
That it doesn’t depend on the man

My intuition has brought me this far
I don’t need to wish on each falling star
I trust I’ve got all I need in myself
I don’t have to look for it in anyone else

CHORUS
Because the strength of a woman
Comes from inside her
The light of her soul
Is to bright to hide her
Strength of a woman
So few understand
That it doesn’t depend on the man
That it doesn’t depend on the man

[scatting]

Strength of a woman
Oh, oh
I stand alone
I’m on my own
I am free to be me
The strength of a woman
Oh, oh
The strength of a woman
The strength of a woman
The strength of a woman
