If I were a tower of strength, I'd walk away
I'd look in your eyes and here's what I'd say
"I don't want you, I don't need you, I don't love you any more"
And I'd walk out that door

You'd be down on your knees
You'd be calling to me
But a tower of a-strength is a-something 
I'll never be

If I were a tower of strength, I'd watch you cry
I'd laugh at your tears and tell you goodbye
"I don't want you, I don't need you, I don't love you any more"
And I'd walk out that door

You'd be down on your knees
You'd be calling to me
But a tower of a-strength is a-something 
I'll never be

"I don't want you, I don't a-need you, I don't love you any more"
And I'd walk out that door

You'd be down on your knees, ah-huh
You'd be calling to me
But a tower of a-strength is a-something 
I'll never be
