Polly Scattergood – I Am Strong lyrics

I am strong, I am not weak
I am not in a place where I can talk to you
I am not hot, I am not cold
I am not for sale, for I am sold

I am strong, I am not weak
I am not in a place where I can talk to you
I am not hot, I am not cold
I am not for sale, I am sold
I built this house, it took quite long
Sticks and stones, I made it strong
I locked it up, I gave you a key
But you didn't come home to me

I am strong, I am not weak
I am not in a place where I can talk to you
I am not hot, I am not cold
I am not for sale, I am sold
I am unaffected, yet quite confused
In a state of non security, of non security

I laugh a lot before I cry
I don't understand how you could lie to me
How you could lie to me

I am strong, I am not weak
I am not in a place where I can talk to you
I am not hot, I am not cold
I am not for sale, I am sold
I am not a prisoner, yet I'm not free
I lost my mind, but I can see
I feel a witch upon my back
She stole my soul, I want it back

I am strong, I am not weak
I am not in a place where I can talk to you
I am not hot, I am not cold
I am not for sale, for I am sold

I am sold, I am sold

    What makes you strong? My upbringing makes me strong. I think back over the life i've had and all of the experiences I went through. I have had a tremendously blessed life so far. I've always had a safe home to live in, food to eat, a family who loves and supports me, and a million memories that I can look back on with a smile. It's these things, the good in my life, rather than the pain, that makes me who I am and gives me the strength to live life. My strength comes from the happiness and love that I have been fortunate enough to experience in abundance throughout my short time on earth.

    What is so good and theraputic about song lyrics is that people can get diffrent meaning or different details in meaning in details in lyrics. For me this song is about mental illness, its about someone who is in fact very poorly but to not make those around them worry tries to show that "i am strong, i am not weak. " the following lyric comes as a contridiction "i am not in a place where i can talk to you" for many people who are mentally ill cannot talk about it. The contradictions or oppisites in this song 'hot' 'cold', may indecate a bipolar nature of the mental illness. The mentaphore of building a house suggests that the illness is in fact a house, houses are protective and a mental illness may be utterly protective and distructive to the sufferer.
