  • God I feel like hell tonight
    The tears of rage I cannot fight
    I'd be the last to help you understand

    Are you strong enough to be my man
    My man

    Nothing's true, and nothing's right
    So let me be alone tonight
    'Cause you can't change the way I am

    Are you strong enough to be my man

    Lie to me, I promise I'll believe
    Lie to me, but please don't leave

    I have a face I cannot show
    I make the rules up as I go
    Just try and love me if you can

    Are you strong enough to be my man
    Are you strong enough to be my man
    Are you strong enough
    My man

    When I've shown you
    That I just don't care
    When I'm throwing punches in the air
    When I'm broken down and I can't stand

    Would you be man enough to be my man

    Lie to me, I promise I'll believe
    Lie to me, but please don't leave Writer/s: DAN TAYLOR, KELVIN CLAUDE SWABY

  • Pj from Denver, CoThis album had such an interesting career. The raw, punkish “Leaving Las Vegas” was in heavy rotation on the college and indie stations for almost a year before the big commercial networks noticed the more radio-friendly “All I Wanna Do”, which ironically was the weakest song on the album (maybe that her label’s plan all along). Strong lyrics but by-the-numbers musically. Then came “Are You Strong Enough”. To get 2.5 hits off your debut album is impressive. It made the veteran backup singer a superstar.
  • Maya from California This song came out before I was born but it is my favorite song by Sheryl Crow aside from her cover of The First Cut is the Deepest.
