You were so tough because you had to be It was so rough but it didn’t have to be But guilt won’t get me anywhere You built me into who I am and who I wanted to be Thank you for the strength that carried me through Thank you for the ways you buried the pain to grow something new You knew there’s be a better day Knew there was a better way To live without being alone There’s so much you could’ve shown me but I’m grateful That you knew my limitations Knew what I could take and what would overtake me You knew that some of the truth later revealed might break me So I thank me You’re a part but you’ll always be part of me I’ll always be thankful that you carried me through When all I knew was miles and miles and a worn pair of running shoes You knew I was worth more That there was something good in store but in the moment all I felt was sore
It's just another day in the life of me. Just another day; nothing new to see. It's just another day in the life of me. Just another day I wish I didn't feel this way. It's just another day in an endless war. Just another day my heart feels sore. It's just another day, but it's almost done. Just another day I pray that tomorrow will be more than just another day.
I heard the jingle of her keys being pulled out of her purse the lock started to move and i go to open the door for her as I opened the door, she collapsed in my arms and smiled I dragged her back into our bedroom and put her in bed with me I asked her how her day was and she only had three words for me through a quiet voice and sleepy eyes "tired and sore" I held her in my arms as she slowly drifted off to sleep and i kissed her goodnight
