"AMERICAN STRONG" LYRICS

WRITTEN BY: ERIC DURRANCE

NOW AIN’T IT ALWAYS SOMETHING EVERY TIME YOU TURN AROUND

JUST WHEN YOU START TO GET AHEAD LIFE STARTS TO KNOCK YOU DOWN

THANK GOD IN THE USA WE’RE ALL BORN FIGHTERS

WHAT DON’T KILLS US MAKES US STRONGER AND THEY CALL US SURVIVORS

 

WE HIT WALLS THAT LOOK TOO HIGH TO CLIMB

WE GET LOST SEARCHIN’ FOR A SIGN

WE STAND NEXT TO THE FIRE

RAISE THAT FLAG UP A LITTLE HIGHER

PUT OUR FAITH IN SOMETHING WE CAN’T SEE

WITH THE HEART OF A SOLDIER WE PRESS ON…AMERICAN STRONG

 

NOW WE’VE HAD TO SACRIFICE IT ALL TO GET TO WHERE WE’RE AT

YEAH ALL THE NAMES UPON THAT WALL IT’S PROOF OF THAT

THERE’S A FLAG OUT ON MY FRONT PORCH WAVIN’ IN THE WIND

THAT SAYS YEAH WE’VE BEEN THROUGH HELL AND PROUDLY GO BACK THERE AGAIN

 

WE HIT WALLS THAT LOOK TOO HIGH TO CLIMB

WE GET LOST SEARCHIN’ FOR A SIGN

WE STAND NEXT TO THE FIRE RAISE THAT FLAG UP A LITTLE HIGHER

PUT OUR FAITH IN SOMETHING WE CAN’T SEE

WITH THE HEART OF A SOLDIER WE PRESS ON…AMERICAN STRONG

 

WE GET KNOCKED DOWN…

WE STAND BACK UP…

THROUGH IT ALL…

IN GOD WE TRUST…

 

WE HIT WALLS THAT LOOK TOO HIGH TO CLIMB

WE GET LOST SEARCHIN’ FOR A SIGN

WE HIT WALLS THAT LOOK TOO HIGH TO CLIMB

WE GET LOST SEARCHIN’ FOR A SIGN

WE STAND NEXT TO THE FIRE RAISE THAT FLAG UP A LITTLE HIGHER

PUT OUR FAITH IN SOMETHING WE CAN’T SEE

WITH THE HEART OF A SOLDIER WE PRESS ON…AND ON… AND ON…

AMERICAN STRONG… AMERICAN STRONG…AMERICAN STRONG…
