  • I do believe in you
    And I know you believe in me
    Oh yeah oh yeah
    And now we realize
    Love's not all that it's supposed to be
    Oh yeah oh yeah

    And knowing that you would have wanted it this way
    I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day

    I know we really tried
    Together we had love inside
    Oh yeah oh yeah
    So now the time has come
    For both of us to live on the run
    Oh yeah oh yeah

    And knowing that you would have wanted it this way
    I do believe I'm feelin' stronger every day
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    After what you've meant to me
    Ooh baby now
    I can make it easily
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    I know that we both agree
    Best thing to happen to you
    The best thing that happened to me
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Feelin' stronger every day
    Feelin' stronger every day
    Feelin' stronger every day
    Feelin' stronger every day... Writer/s: Peter Cetera, James Pankow

  • John from Montreal, CanadaHoward, if you listen carefully at the choruses in the end part you can hear them sing "jumping jack flash it's a gas gas gas" a couple of times.
  • Bryan from Atlanta, GaHoward in Levittown, Pa, are you sure you're commenting about the right song? This ain't no ballad. Quite the opposite.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn June 17th 1973, "Feelin' Stronger Every Day" by Chicago entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #75; and on August 12th it peaked at #10 (for 2 non-consecutive weeks) and spent 16 weeks on the Top 100...
    Was track five of side two on the group's fifth studio album,'Chicago VI', and the album reached #1 (for 5 non-consecutive weeks) on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart...
    One other track from the album also reached the Top 100, "Just You 'N' Me", it peaked at #4.
  • Lewis H. Drake Jr from Gardena, CaHoward, the other lyrics at the end is, "You know I'm alright now."
  • Howard from Levittown, PaThis sounds like the beginning of what would be Chicago's ballad style. It would be heard again in hits like "Wishing You Were Here" and "Baby What A Big Surprise." It wasn't all David Foster, although he put the gloss on it, like it (as millions did) or not.
  • Howard from Naperville, IlAt the end of the song, there are complimentary lyrics to "feeling stronger every day...". Any ideas?
  • Reg from Kemptville, On, -A very energetic song. I still have the 45.
    The best thing recorded after Chicago Transit Authority
