Saturday’s Song

When contemplating what song I wanted to feature this week, I was reminded of a recent video from fellow 30-something, divorced and childless blogger, Sassy Divorcee (see her story here).  I first encountered Sassy on Twitter and I liked her name, so I followed her.  According to Sassy, she’s no Elizabeth Gilbert.  Indeed, she brings her own unique brand of sass, strength and sarcasm to the blogosphere.  When I read her post entitled Who Said Divorce Was The End Of My Life, I found it rather awesome (I love her new spin on the phrase “head in the clouds”).  I tweeted the post with a note about the inspiration within and Sassy sent me a link to the video below which features more images from her amazing journey, as well as today’s song:  Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You), performed by Kelly Clarkston, written by Jörgen Elofsson, Ali Tamposi, David Gamson, and Greg Kurstin.

Lyrics…

You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want

You think you got the best of me
Think you’ve had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I’d come running back
Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re dead wrong

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

You heard that I was starting over with someone new
They told you I was moving on, over you

You didn’t think that I’d come back
I’d come back swinging
You try to break me, but you see

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

Thanks to you I got a new thing started
Thanks to you I’m not the broken-hearted
Thanks to you I’m finally thinking about me
You know in the end the day you left was just my beginning
In the end…

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over cause you’re gone

[2x]
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

(When I’m alone)

 

…Hope you’re having a great weekend 🙂

    Woohoo! Love the video. I’m leaving for Machu Picchu in about a month.

  2. I love this song. Love Kelly Clarkson, too, because she always seems like an “I’m gonna do this MY way” kind of girl. A great soundtrack for the week.
