Staton, Candi - That's How Strong My Love Is Lyrics




Some people they call me crazy
For falling in love with you
They can take me and lock me away baby
'Cause there's nothing those bars can do

I'll be the rising moon after setting sun
Just to let you know you'll always have someone
I'll be the clearest day when the rain is done
So you'll always know

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That's how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That's how strong my love is

I use to feel kinda lonely
'Cause the world it can be so fake
All that matters I'm telling you
Is you and me only
And the fortress from love we make

I'll be the water you need in the desert land
Just to let you know you'll always have my hand
I'll be the woman you need to be a better man
So you'll always know

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That's how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That's how strong my love is

Oh, can't nothing break us down
Oh, 'cause we are heaven bound
Like the mountain standing tall
Immovable; we're here to stay
Oh, can't nothing get in the way

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall (I will never fall)
That's how strong my love is (That's how strong my love is)
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all (We can risk it all)
That's how strong my love is (That love is)

Through the deepest waters
I won't let you drown (I won't let you drown, oh)
That's how strong my love is (Oh, that's how strong my love, my love, my love)
'Cause we're the moon in the sky
That will never come down (Never come down)
That's how strong my love is (Oh, that's how strong my love is)
That's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is

    I've loved Candi since 1969. Always thought of her as the female Otis Redding. Ironically, she covered O.V. Wright's "That's How Strong My Love Is" and not Otis' (They are the same poem, although Otis omits a stanza, but two different melodies.) Great, powerful soul from Candi. Thanks for posting this.

    +OtisFan1 you're so right I owned an 8track and would sleep with her singing, Mama would come in during the night and shut it off, I wouldn't even open my eye I push it back in, for young hearts run free

    OtisFan1

    +Abrom mead Thanks for your reply. It brought me back to listen to this great track again. Funny thing, just a few days ago I heard "Young Hearts Run Free" in the grocery store! Stopped a fellow shopper to exclaim, "Candi Staton!"--they must have thought I was nuts. About her, yes.

    Anderson Hilliard

    OtisFan1 yes,she is soul sister no.1,Aretha,2nd

    This is my wife and I's wedding song from our first dance. What a beautiful song! Candi does it the best :-) Thanks for posting this. What a blessing it is to know we can listen to it whenever we want!
