Goapele - Strong As Glass Lyrics




I know I'm strong
I'll brave the storm
I know I can take a few hits
You ain't gotta worry bout this
Stay in my zone
Take care of my home
Always got my own

But be gentle with me
Cause I'm human baby and I break
You know I might not make it to the next time baby
that you say you're sorry I might go away

[Chorus:]
Cause I'm only strong as glass
They say I'm built to last but I could break
Yeah I'm only strong as glass
and I am all I have so if I break, there's no more

I say I'm good when I'm misunderstood
I already gave enough, so you can never call my bluff
I work with no pay but I'll find a way
Cause I don't wanna ask too much

But be gentle with me
Cause I'm human baby and I break
You know I might not make it to the next time baby
that you say you're sorry
I might....go away

[Chorus:]
Cause I'm only strong as glass
They say I'm built to last but I could break
Yeah I'm only strong as glass
and I am all I have so if I break,
there's no more oooooh oh oh

Strong as I am
Weak as a man I am oooohh
I'm gonna stand for as long as I can
Cause I am

I'm only strong as glass they say
I'm built to last but I could break
Yeah oooooh oh
I'm only strong as glass and I am all I have so
if I break...there's no more oh oooooh

I'm only strong as glass they say
I'm built to last but I could break, I could break
Hoooo oh ooooh oh ooooh oh
Yeah I'm only strong as glass and I am all I have so
if I break....there's no more oh oooooohhh

    Beautiful Song And Video.

  3. Bonaducci

    I love this song . I have struggled with my physical , emotional , mental , and sexual abuse that consumed my childhood . I am a 23 year old Artist , Musician , And Visionary from Norfolk , VA now residing in Los Angeles , CA for school at The La Film School for Film and Recording arts to become a Music Producer for myself and other artist like me . I look up to you Goapele every since I remixed Closer To My Dreams when I was 16 years old . I find myself listening to that song every day , every second , and every minute when I feel like crashing as I have P.T.S.D and Bipolar 1 Disorder . I suffered a lot growing up and now I suffer just to stay out of hospitals and crisis centers like the one i'm in now . Your Artistry is amazing and so beautiful and touching as well as inspiring . Thank you for your Art and I really appreciate you so much for doing all you do for woman and everyone .

  59. dale kidd

    raw and real with the music and lyrics

  60. Jai Jatta

    For me, I think that in life we all start off as strong as glass and as we go through hardship which hurts us, it' starts chipping away at the glass and makes us weak. However as we get through the hardship the chipped parts of glass become replaced by steel and in the end we all become strong because of what we've been through. Being steel makes it easier to get through the hardship and walk away from the people causing us pain. This is a beautiful song that has really touched me

  61. Carmen DelValle

    LOVE THIS SONG!!!

  62. Sendy Gilbert

    P.S. : If there were any Steven Universe fans here, I think she would fit to voice the fusion of Steven and Garnet.
