Lyrics

Strong

Written By: Anni Black

You just put one foot
In front of the other
It’s keeping me together, keeping me sober, I’m fine

Unlike my father
In October
Always drinking it’s not okay, but it’s fine

Happy 16th birthday to me
Dad stop taking tranquilizers, put down the whiskey
Mom I wish that you would get out of the car and stay
But I won’t blame you, if you drive away

You just put one foot in front of the other
It gets easier I promise after you start
Unlike my father, in November
Couldn’t even tell us he was on his way to the court

House that never felt quite like a home
Three stories it’s easy to be left alone
How could they have known that I was up at 1 am
And heard every single fight, coming from the kitchen

oh oh oh oh

Take a step, take a step, take a step, I’m fine
Take a step, maybe steal a sip of wine
Take a step, take a step, you’re doing great
Don’t get too close to the edges, why tempt fate
Grab your shoes girls, we’re walking - out

You just put one foot in front of the other
Keep a smile on and keep your head held high
Unlike my father, in Dec, feeling so guilty couldn’t even look us in the eye

You just put one foot in front of the other
Eventually you will see just how far you’ve gone
Just like parents two years after
Sometimes goodbye’s the only resolution - what doesn’t kill you makes you strong

Cat Lady

Written By: Anni Black

My friend got married yesterday
She looked pretty and I looked pretty single
Something about a wedding day
In another bridesmaid gown has got me fearful

Know I’m too young to be worried
Know I’m too young to be concerned

But I don’t want to be
A cat lady
Where all my dinner dates have to eat on the floor
I don’t want to be
A cat lady
Where the only aisle I walk down is at the pet store

I’ve got my tuned-up guitar strings
A piece of blank paper and an almost dry blue pen
Who needs an engagement ring
guitar picks are much cheaper and convenient

Know I’m too young to be nervous
But oh honey I am

because I don’t want to be
A cat lady
Where all my dinner dates have to eat on the floor
I don’t want to be
A cat lady
Where the only aisle I walk down is at the pet store

It’s not that
I don’t like cats
I actually really do

I just want to know that someday
someone’ll come up to me saying I do

I don’t want to be.... at the pet store, at the pet
store

meow.

Goodbye

Written By: Anni Black

lover we have come to the end
who are we kidding why pretend
lover we go through the motions without emotion
and I cant take it anymore

I thought maybe things would get better
but there’s nothing left here to save

good bye now for good bye
good bye no for good - good bye, good bye
good bye now for good bye
good bye now for good - good bye, good bye
good bye now for good bye
good bye now for good - good bye, good bye
I am only gonna make your cry

lover I won’t forget and I’ll never regret
the moments are hearts beat as one
lover we can’t go back the feeling’s past
it’s time we close the door

I meant everything I ever said
This conversation included

I wish there was something I knew for certain we could do thing
but I can’t keep feeling so dependent knowing I can run right back to you

to you

Chorus repeat
