I look at all the things I put you through
I've often wondered how it bothered you
I know how close I came to losing you
But we managed to stay alive
I guess only the strong survive
I just gotta tell you baby

[Chorus]
Sometimes love can be so cruel
Sometimes we learn 'bout being a fool
I don't know why, girl, we've lasted so long
It may be the water
That keeps us strong

I took for granted that you'd always be there
I know it seemed at times I didn't care
I didn't know what you had given me
But with love it takes some time
But through the joy and pain, you're mine
I just gotta tell you baby

[Chorus]

It may be the water
That keeps us strong
You know that I'm so glad to say, oh baby
That it all turned out this way, ?cause you know that
It almost slipped away, oh baby
But we managed to stay alive
I guess only the strong survive
I just gotta tell you baby

[Chorus]

You know that I'm so glad to say, oh baby
That it all turned out this way, cause you know that
It almost slipped away, oh baby
But we managed to stay alive
I guess we found that only the strong survive
So I just had to tell you baby

[Chorus]

It may be the water
That keeps us strong
