You Are My Strength

About the Song

There are a couple of lines in this song that have been around in my "ideas" folder for many years. The line "look at the world from over my shoulder" came from my wife Betty.


Lyrics

This is the strength that I never got
From anyone else, 'til you came along and made me strong

And if my mind could think about anyone else,
My heart would be true it wouldn't give in it will be yours 'til the end.

So look at the world from over my shoulder.
Look at the world from where we are now.
I'll look at the world from over your shoulder.
What good is the world without you anyhow?

You are the strength that keeps me hangin' on,
You are the wonder of it all for me

I had wondered aimlessly from one to the next,
Never even knowing what a core belief true love requires.

Something in your being made me realize
You had something different, you had the look of forever in your eyes.
Of forever in your eyes.

So look at the world from over my shoulder.
Look at the world from where we are now.
I'll look at the world from over your shoulder.
What good is the world without you anyhow, without you anyhow.
You are my strength.
